The module transports fundamentals on basic processes in the atmosphere and hydrosphere. Energy budget and water budget are physically analysed including radiation, precipitation, evapotranspiration, surface and subsurface runoff as well as relevant water and energy storages. The climate of the boundary layer is derived from site characteristics as well as radiation, energy and water balances. The boundary layer climate of several land use types is introduced exemplarily. Another main focus is the macro climate and its variability.
The students critically analyse meteorological and hydrological information (data, forecasts and consulting) and are able to apply their knowledge for water supply management tasks like development, dimensioning, and management.
The students have available the proficiency of relevant processes in atmosphere and hydrosphere, as well as of methods of observation and modelling. This implies basic principles, and estimation technologies for all components of the water cycle.
