Catchment Science Course at the University of Aberdeen
The Annual Catchment Science Summer School at the University of Aberdeen has a great reputation. After attending the 5th year of the course in August 2014, I can fully understand why. This 6-Day short course had a hands-on Catchment Science curriculum, focusing on Northern Catchments, runoff processes and combined hydrometric, isotope/chemical tracer and modelling techniques in catchment hydrology.
The learning objectives were to understand:
- Evolution of empirical and theoretical understanding of runoff processes
- Hydrochemical and isotopic measurement and analyses
- Model integration – linking field experiments with modelling approaches
