Institution description The Water Resources Management and Coastal Engineering Laboratory activities include: Water Resources Management. Climate Change and weather extremes impact on water resources, agriculture and tourism Study of hydrological extremes (floods - water scarcity & droughts leading to desertification) Flash flood forecasting with radars – Watershed analysis – water balance and water availability forecasting Application of hydrologic models in modelling surface and ground water in basins. Application of GIS/Remote Sensing Technologies with high resolution satellite data for the determination of hydraulic parameters like land use, soil type and Digital Terrains Development of new technologies of neural networks for estimating and forecasting the groundwater level. Evaluation and remediation of aquifers. Collection and organization of environmental data with the use of geographic information systems. Planning of urban networks for sewerage and irrigation. Coastal Engineering Mathematical simulation of diffusion and dispersion of pollutants in water bodies (rivers, lakes, coasts). Alternative planning of acceptable liquid effluent for reduction of their negative impacts in the environment and in human health. Environmental flow impacts in surface and coastal waters. Mathematic models of wave propagation. Coastal Effects on waves, coastal sediment transport, coastal morphology, environmental impact of coastal structures.
