Description:
COURSE OBJECTIVES:
Students will be introduced with:
(i) ways of organizing work at meteorological stations,
(ii) measurements and observations of meteorological quantities using instruments and methods of observations
(iii) the observation of severe meteorological events by means of radars,
(iv) determining the cloudiness and type of cloud in terms of height, composition and shape of the cloud
(v) monitoring of observations and encryption of meteorological data.
2. Linking theoretical knowledge from previous meteorological courses with practical work at meteorological stations.
3. Students learn how to monitor meteorological phenomena, observe the states of the atmosphere, and how to associate their changes with weather changes.
COURSE CONTENT:
Properties of hydrological occurrences, hydrological data, basin, runoff factors. Hydrometry: measurements of water level, velocity, water and sediment discharge. Stage hydrograph, discharge curve, hydrograph and its component parts, frequency curves and water level and discharge curves, runoff coefficient and specific discharge from a basin. Probability and statistics in hydrology. Linear and nonlinear correlation, double mass amounts. High waters: distribution curves, unit hydrograph, triangle-shaped hydrograph, isochrone method. Rational formula and other empirical formulas. Low waters of various return periods, periods of low water and of hydrological drought. Sedimentation in watercourses. General equation of hydrological balance. Regional hydrological analysis.
LEARNING OUTCOMES:
Getting experience with the organization of a meteorological measuring instruments. Surveying and Determining Clouds. Meteorological phenomena and atmospheric conditions recorded using symbols. Meteorological Diary. Observation of soil and agrometeorological magnitude. Use of radar in meteorology and application of radar equation.
