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.
It is expected that after completion of the course students should know:
explain the features of hydrological phenomena,
be familiar with the most important aspects of hydrometry,
learn the application of probability and statistics in hydrology,
distinguish between large and small water and know their characteristics,
apply the regional hydrological analysis.
