Course Description

The course provides fundamental knowledge and practical understanding for the common statistical techniques of data processing in hydrology and water engineering.  This knowledge and understanding must allow the students to select and apply most appropriate techniques to summarize and organize data. It also allows them to have an insight in the limitations of data collection, and the corresponding consequences for water management and engineering.


The course is intended to provide the student with:

  • An understanding of the application of statistical analysis in earth sciences
  • Experience on the use of probability distributions and statistical theory/methods in solving water resources problems
  • Experience on the use of modern statistical methods in problem solving
