This course aims to provide students with insights into the drivers, processes and consequences of hydrological hazards. Focusing on the mechanistic processes generating floods and droughts, students will gain experience using state-of-the-art data and modelling tools to estimate the frequency and forecast the consequences of extreme hydrological events. The course will also explore the management paradigms that have evolved to mitigate and adapt to hydrological hazards and transitional steps needed to build resilient communities.
