MODELING HYDROLOGICAL PROCESSES ACROSS SPATIAL SCALES
The course was organized the University of Trento from the 9th to the 12th of March 2015. It was focused on modeling hydrological processes across spatial scales. Particular interest was devoted to catchment and continental scales, highlighting difficulties and the solutions proposed to cope with uncertainty arising from the dichotomy between process complexity, due to spatial heterogeneity, and the endemic data scarcity with which hydrology struggles.
The main topics covered were: catchment-scale hydrological modeling; continental (Pan-European) hydrological modeling; assessment of hydrological uncertainty. Furthermore, a practical session was organized on modeling uncertainty. Click here to download the flyer.
The course was held at the Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering at University of Trento in Italy and it was attended by 20 participants from 11 different institutions. The students had the chance to present their research activities related to GLOBAQUA.
