The concept of Hydrology is based on the science on water - one of the most important resources for humans and nature. Due to the steadily increasing worldwide water demand, availability, distribution and water quality are highly relevant subjects in the 21st century that cross the national borders. Principally, Hydrology concentrates on the spatial and temporal distribution of water in reference to its amount and quality above and under-ground.
In Freiburg, we teach Hydrology based on thematically structured instruction linked to a scientific and system-oriented approach. This is indispensable in order to find answers to current questions concerning water, environment, and climate change and to provide information in reference to important planning criteria, such as water policy, drinking water supply, flood prevention and water protection.
