Outline of lecture
This lecture covers topics related to hydrological modeling, water resources engineering and management. It introduces physically-based hydrological models as a tool for water assessment and decision support. Actually, the characteristics of input data to these models are reviewed. Optimization techniques in water resources are also introduced. Then, water management experiences from different regions of the world are reviewed. Finally, the concepts of integrated water management are updated.
Purpose of lecture
This lecture expects to expose students to advanced knowledge in hydrology and water resources. The combination of lecture, class exercises and assignments will be applied.
