GEOSTATISTICAL PREDICTION OF STREAMFLOW INDICES: THEORY AND PRACTICE

Aim:
The aim of this short training course was to provide participants with a foundation in geostatistical prediction of streamflow indices and signatures (e.g. flood quantiles, low-flow indices, flow-duration curves, etc.). The participants learned theory and practice on how to spatially interpolate streamflow indices along the stream-network with Topological kriging (Top-kriging).

Methods and Information:
The keynote seminars was coupled with hands-on practical computational experiences (R-project environment; R-package “rtop”) and discussions under the supervision of international academic experts in Top-kriging applications.

So thanks to the teaching team, which consisted of:
Attilio Castellarin (University of Bologna, attilio.castellarin@unibo.it)
Alberto Viglione (Vienna University of Technology, viglione@hydro.tuwien.ac.at)
Jose Luis Salinas (Vienna University of Technology, salinas@waterresources.at)
And special thanks to Jon Olav Skøien, who attended as a guest to this course.
