Course Content (Syllabus)
General Hydrology: Hydrological cycle, hydrometeorology, water balance, hydro-measurements
analysis. Precipitation origin, measurements, analysis and prognosis of rain and snow, evaporization
and transpiration. Underground water flow, underground hydro-carriers, permeability, soil hydraulic parameters.
Runoff development, measurement and analysis of surface runoffs and water supply,
hydrographs, precipitation-runoff simulations. Extreme runoff events, forecasting of flood events.
Characteristics of watersheds, hydrographic networks, receivers, limnography. Methods and
applications of technical hydrology. Principles and systems of environmental hydrology.
General Hydraulics: Hydrostatics. Principles and equations of hydrodynamics. Open pipes and
channels, flow types (steady, uniform and non-uniform, instable), weirs, hydrofalls, watersheds,
branching, cross section and slope changes, flow profile, closed pipes, underground hydraulics, flow
inflation, shrinkage and suppression. Lake and coastal hydraulics. Principles and systems of environmental
Potamology: Water flow, cobble movement, formation of fluvial beds, river management works.
