PUB 2020 Summer School, Runoff Predictions in Ungauged Basins

July 6, 2020 – July 10, 2020 all-day
TU Wien

This Summer School is devoted to runoff prediction in ungauged basins (PUB), i.e., predicting water runoff at locations where no runoff data are available. This lack of data presents considerable challenges to catchment managers who require information on water flows for decision making. This course, based on the book “Runoff Prediction in Ungauged Basins: Synthesis across Processes, Places and Scales”, will provide hydrologists with the theory and methods to address this critical challenge. The collection of speakers will bring together results from individual location-based studies and show how a comparative approach can be applied to learn from the differences and similarities between catchments around the world along gradients of of climate and landscape features.

Masters and Ph.D. students researching catchment hydrology and practicing hydrologists who are challenged by making predictions in the absence of runoff data are encouraged to attend.
