A joint graduate course developed by six universities and seven departments in four Nordic countries and Brazil.
The “Nordic course on climate and hydrology” aims to integrate knowledge of the effects of climate on different aspects of hydrology of the Nordic areas.
It consists of three independent modules: “Climate”, “Hydrology”, and “Climate-Hydrology Interactions”. The first two modules are aimed at students with different backgrounds. The Climate module for students with background in hydrology and the Hydrology one to those with background in climatology. These are followed by the third module taken by all students.
The course is provided partly by teaching at a distance and partly by direct contact with students. The theoretical parts of the course will be given by means of the internet. Subsequently, students will gather in meetings.
Detailed information can be found at : Description of Activity
