One of the major challenges in water resources management today and in the coming future is reducing the risk related to extreme events, i.e. floods and droughts, mainly through a reliable flow prediction. Large-scale hydrological models have been widely proposed to gain insights into dominant water processes, quantify the role of human-water interactions, and identify emergent global patterns in a changing world.
During the conference EGU23 held in Vienna, the Short Course “Hydroinformatics for hydrology: Introduction to large-scale hydrological modelling” was delivered. This course was co-organized by the Young Hydrologic Society (YHS). Dr. Niko Wanders from Utrecht University was the lecturer of this course.
This short course aimed at gaining a better understanding of:
- historical overview of the field;
- state-of-the-art, example studies;
- future directions, emerging opportunities;
- how you could get started in large-scale hydrological modelling.
