Stochastic Modelling of Hydrologic Systems

Harpa Jonsdottir

AbstractIn this PhD project several stochastic modelling methods are studied and applied on various subjects in hydrology. The research was prepared at Informatics and Mathematical Modelling at the Technical University of Denmark.

The thesis is divided into two parts. The first part contains an introduction and an overview of the papers published. Then an introduction to basic concepts in hydrology along with a description of hydrological data is given. Finally an introduction to stochastic modelling is given.

The second part contains the research papers. In the research papers the stochastic methods are described, as at the time of publication these methods represent new contribution to hydrology. The second part also contains additional description of software used and a brief introduction to stiff systems. The system in one of the papers is stiff.
