The computers at the chair of Hydrology are a part of the LAN network at the university. All employee offices are equipped with personal computers. Two high performance servers are available for CPU-demanding computations. Data is stored on two internal servers and one external server, which is maintained by the University’s computer center.

In addition to normal equipment, the chair has a Plotter which can be used to print posters and draft maps.

  • Several different rainfall-runoff models (i.e. HBV, TOPMODEL)
  • Hydro chemical and water quality modeling software (i.e. PHREEQC)
  • Statistical software (i.e. R)
  • Water retention and age dating software
  • Several different GIS systems (i.e. SAGA)
