Course content:

  • Purpose of Water Resources Management (WRM).
  • Components of WRM plans.
  • Analysis of hydrologic data (double-mass curve analysis, identification of outliers, interpolation of missing data, time series analysis, average values of hydrological data over a catchment, method of inverse distance, method of kriging).
