Response variability of selected hydrological models to typical temporal distributions of short-term precipitation

The article presents a selection of outcomes of a three-years’ project named “Variability of Short-term Precipitation and Runoff in Small Catchments and its Influence on Water Resources Management“. Its aim was to provide to the public the newly derived typical temporal distributions of subdaily precipitation, also known as design rainfalls.

Classification of small watersheds for the rainfall-runoff modelling in the Czech Republic

This article introduces a classification of small watersheds in the Czech Republic in terms of potential hydrological response to a set of design precipitation time series. Watershed classes as well as precipitation time series were derived as a partial result of a three-year project aimed at the design of typical soil conservation measures and small water management structures

Web services for the provision of design rainfall

In the field of GIS support for hydrological modelling there has been distinct evolution towards so called web services, which enable the users to obtain necessary input data for modelling in a fast and effective way. With respect to design rainfall data – one of the key component – the deficit has been considerable.

Municipal wastewater as a diagnostic medium

The paper outlines the possibilities of using the epidemiological approach to the analysis of municipal wastewater to monitor the lifestyle of the population, its dietary habits, the environmental impacts on humans, the assessment of the state of health of the population and monitoring the consumption of illicit drugs and other substances in the monitored population

Baseflow evolution from the part of Bohemian-Moravian Highlands

This article is focused on evolution of baseflow from part of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands. This is a topical issue and, given the current situation, is also often discussed. The problem of groundwater and its recharge is an important (not only) hydrogeological problem, as climatic conditions in recent years, especially low precipitation, have a negative impact on groundwater recharge.

A multi-part and audience success story of Czech Television “Vltava in Pictures”

Within the Czech Television Documentary Cycle “Searching for Lost Time” (460 parts), a separate section (the so-called thematic ministry) “Vltava in Pictures” was also presented, which presented the longest river Vltava in the Czech Republic. The set of documentaries has a total of 86 parts (26 hours of broadcasting time) and systematically progresses from the source of the river to its confluence with Elbe in Mělník.
