Teaching

Based on the research conducted by the research group, teaching activities include theoretical and applied approaches in ecohydrology, water resources management, water in global change, and natural hazards and risks. Ongoing and completed courses, as well as thematic impressions for Master's and Bachelor's theses that can be conducted in the research group, are listed below.

Teaching focus:

  • Ecohydrology
  • Human-Water Sytems
  • Water resources management
  • Natural hazards and risks
  • Global Change
  • Inter- und transdisziplinäry methods
  • Szenario- & system analyses
  • Project planning skills
  • Application of Geographical Information Systems

 

In teaching, the RG is actively represented in all courses offered at the GIUB. The courses include topics such as sustainable water management or flood risk management, inter- and transdiciplinary methods, modeling in water management, field internships and excursions, and more.

General topics

  • Eco-hydrology 

  • River basin and water resources management

  • Hydrological natural hazards and risk management

  • Sustainable water management in the context of human-environment relations

  • Scenario & system analyses

  • Integrative and transdisciplinary collaboration in hydrological contexts

  • Hydrological modeling and GIS in hydrological analysis

Specific topics

    Bachelor theses

    • Potentials of Natural Climate Protection (Literature Analysis)
    • Effects of rice cultivation on water quality and quantity
    • Development of drought events in Germany
    • Potential for the production of hydrogen (also suitable as MA)
    • Vulnerability due to drought - which factors are particularly relevant?
