OVERVIEW

The course deals with the topics relating to the hydrologic modelling with specific references to the frequency analysis of extreme events (storm and flood).

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims at improving the knowledge of the hydrologic modelling. Particular attention is given to the frequency analysis of extreme events (storm and flood). Furthermore the understanding of hydrological processes provided in the first-level course of Hydrology will be developed.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims at improving the knowledge of the hydrologic modelling. Particular attention is given to the frequency analysis of extreme events (storm and flood). Furthermore the understanding of hydrological processes provided in the first-level course of Hydrology will be developed.

TEACHING METHODS

 The lectures are organized in about 50 hours of theory including at least 10 hours of practice in order to deal with applied problems on the main topics of the course. The students will draw up a numerical exercise relating to the statistical analysis of the maximum rainfall depths for assigned duration. The exercise will be discussed during the oral examination.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The main contents of the course are the following:

  • Review of the principles of hydrology and inferential statistics
  • Rainfall-runoff modelling approaches
  • Flow routing modelling approaches
  • Hydrologic statistics
  • Frequency analysis of extreme events (storm/flood)
  • Regional regression analysis of hydrological extremes
