ICYA-4710 Hydrologic Modeling

This course begins with the revision of concepts and procedures in hydrologic modeling, and then it procedes in a sequential manner through several topics that contribute to the development of rainfall-runoff models: (1) rainfall modeling based on conceptual deterministic and probabilistic approximations; (2) soil-plant-atmosphere relations with ecohydrology concepts; (3) rainfall interception modeling and its importance in long term water balances; (4) horizontal precipitation modeling which is a relevant process in cloud forests and paramos; (5) geomorphologic unit hydrographs and its probabilistic interpretation of travel time; (6) rainfallrunoff modeling with different aproximations; (7) frequency analyses of extreme hydrologic events, with emphasis on pdfs selection; (8) analyses of hydrologic times series with inclusión of ENSO effects.
