Sustainable catchment management relies on a robust understanding of: rainfall-runoff and hydraulic processes; how variability in catchment characteristics can influence rates and volumes of runoff; the relationship between flow and water level at any location. The development of appropriate catchment management solutions is also dependent on the ability to correctly evaluate the impact of different options.
This introductory course guides participants through the fundamental science and the most up-to-date supporting tools. It demonstrates content and relevance through a series of worked examples.
Those involved in river and catchment management including recent graduates, consultants, local authority staff, conservation and fisheries officers, development control and flood defence officers. Some background knowledge in hydrology or hydraulics, or education to degree level in geography, civil engineering or environmental science would be helpful.
At the end of the course participants will:
Excellent knowledge and experience from speakers giving great lectures on hydrology and hydraulic subjects. Fully engaging with the right ratio of lecture and exercise."Past delegates
"All speakers were professional, very experienced and offered plenty of opportunity to ask questions."
"Good range of information on a range of topics."
"Presentations by experts working in the field whose knowledge and enthusiasm were evident.
Understand the fundamental hydrological and hydraulic issues necessary to undertake a robust review of flood risk model outputs and surface water drainage design submissions for planning.
