Lecture: Hydrological Concepts (A4a) (74012)
Tu.: 08:00-10:00, S 22 (GEO)
L, 3 ECTS
Starting Date: 18 October, 2022
Learning Objectives: The objective of this module is to gain a thorough understanding of natural processes of water flow and storage in and between the various compartments of the environment and to learn about various impacts on global water resources.
Course Content: The module is divided into a lecture/exercise about fundamental hydrological processes and a seminar with interactive content .
The focus of the lecture are the hydrological cycle and the water balance equation. Processes of water movement through the compartments of the atmosphere, biosphere and geosphere and their interactions are discussed in detail. Furthermore, aspects of chemical and ecological water quality and strategies for protecting surface- and groundwater are presented.
In the seminar, we discuss current risks for and impacts on water resources in a global context. Students select a topic and present the results of their literature review to their fellow students, with the aim to stimulate a critical discussion also of potential mitigation strategies. The student presentations may be complemented by presentations of external experts.
