FAST-CR004Acad. year: 2017/2018

1. Theoretical and practical bases of utilization of modern information and communication technologies for modelling, management and decision making in field of water management.
2. Collecting and processing of input data.
3. Application of simulation models in water management (rainfall-runoff models, simulation of water flow in pipe systems and open channels, ground water flow modelling, simulation of sediment load motion, solute transport).
4. Processing and evaluation of modelling results (application of GIS etc.).
