Summer Short Course: Runoff Predictions in Ungauged Basins

SUMMER SHORT COURSE 2016

Runoff Predictions in Ungauged Basins

Learn methods of estimating runoff characteristics in the absence of local runoff observations. 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 climate and landscape features.
