About

Many environmental risks and societal concerns are directly related to the way we manage our land and water environments. The management of water resources and conflicts and collaborations caused by shared water resources are emphasised through applications to practical management challenges in society.

Students completing the Hydrology, Hydrogeology and Water Resources Master’s programme at Stockholm University are expected to be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of hydrological and hydrogeological processes, the main components of the water cycle, and vulnerability and resilience of water resources, use models, mathematical equations and information systems as important tools for dealing with water related problems (including environmental aspects and ecological economics), handle hydrologic data, including methods for time series analyses and management of spatial data using geographic information systems (GIS) and geostatistics, and be able to quantify and handle uncertainty, probability and risk.

This broad knowledge is important for professions related to international conflict management, environmental management by governmental agencies, environmental policy, civil and environmental engineering, and industrial and agricultural impact assessments.

The courses in this program include the following topics
  • Hydrological and hydrogeological processes, main components of the water cycle (e.g., precipitation, evapotranspiration, discharge) and the spreading of dissolved substances and pollutants in various water systems.
  • Water resources and water quality, pollution spreading through surface, ground and coastal water systems, as well as vulnerability and resilience of water resources.
  • Regional analyses related to global water resource vulnerability and resilience.
  • Models and information systems as important tools for dealing with hydrologic and hydrogeologic problems, and as a basis for managing water resources well.
  • Mathematical equations that are used in models for describing water flow and contaminant transport.
  • Handling of hydrologic data including methods for time series analyses and management of spatial data using geographic information systems (GIS) and geostatistics.
  • Integrated natural and social science studies of natural and anthropogenic flows of water, nutrients, pollutants and other biogeochemical substances that are important for environmental risk assessment, ecosystem development, and management of environmental resources.
  • Principles and methods for quantifying and handling uncertainty, probability and risk, as well as environmental and ecological economics.
