Learning objectives
To learn about the hydrological processes that characterize water resource systems, the modern principles driving their planning and management, and the main tools used to support planning and management decisions at different spatial scales in agricultural or forested systems.
Expected learning outcomes
The student will become familiar with the main tools that can be used for the planning and management of water resources at small and large territorial scales, such as open-field and laboratory monitoring techniques and technologies, GIS for the management and representation of spatial data, available digital carthography, water balance modeling at different spatial scales, principles of integrated and participatory water resource planning. Through two praticals, the student will acquire skills related to the whole process of hydrological modeling, respectively at the agricultural field and at the irrigation district scales: from the retrival of raw data, its processing to obtain model input data and parameters, the design and execution of simulations, to the critical analysis of model results.
