1. Flood types, their generation, hydrologic measurements, historical floods. 2. Identification of flood hazards (determination of potentially endangered areas and possible scenarios of flood course). 3. Simulation of flood scenarios (rainfall runoff models, modelling flood plain water flow and ground water flow), runoff conditions study. 4. Flooding affected by water structures (operating regulation, actualisation of flood protection measures), hydraulic structures safety during flooding. 5. Flood plain risk and its evaluation (vulnerability, exposition, risk, evaluation methods). 6. Assessment of potentially flooded areas (according water law, classification according town planning scheme). 7. Uncertainties and their effect on the level of flood protection. 8. Flood plain damage determination, flood risk quantification. 9. Groundwater regimes changes during flood events. 10. Types of flood protection and their design.
