Cambridge Global Challenges


Short course held by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology. The participants of the 3 day workshop will gain modelling and catchment water management by using data of studied catchments and the model.

Course Objectives

The participants will

  1. Gain better understanding of the water cycle components
  2. Gain better understanding of hydrological processes operating at catchment scale using physically based modelling approach
  3. Be able to quantify the available water resources
  4. Be able to investigate the future impact of climate change as well as the change in land use on water resources availability
  5. Be able to develop better approaches for water resources management through the knowledge gained in the course

Target audience

Hydrologists, Intermediate level (previous data modelling experience an advantage, but not essential.)
