This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.

Project description:Hydrológie extremes used in water resources planning and design were usually described by one dimensional characteristics in the past (e.g. 100 year discharge). However, extremes are resulting from complex hydrological and meteorological events and their correct description should use multidimensional characteristics (e.g. joint study of the flood peak, volume and duration), which are interrelated and may be mutually correlated. In the project the structure and dependence properties of such entities will be studied (both at site and regionally) by copulas. Within a simulation modelling framework, the combination of rainfall-runoff models and rainfall generators will be used to generate long series of flows for the study of properties of multivariate hydrológie extremes and the development of appropriate copula based muhivariate probability distributions. In turn such new models would be able to supply water resources specialists with a new type of design information which was not available generally so far and in Slovakia it is totally absent. This area represents emerging research opportunities with good chances to achieve original results, which can also quickly find practical applications.
