||Numerical Simulation of Complex Environmental Processes
|Lecturer: doc. Mgr. Dušan Vopálka CSc.
||Weekly load: 1+1
Definition of the environmental system, modelling procedure, multicompartment analysis, verification and validation. Methods of determination of submodels parameters. Chosen methods of solution of ordinary and partial differential equation. Simulations with codes modelling simple and/or complex environmental systems. Practical demonstration and exercise: contaminant sorption on natural materials, modelling population dynamics, speciation and migration codes.
1. Physical and mathematical models, models as a management tool, models as a scientific tool
2. System, types of behaviour: dynamic, chaotic, catastrophic.
3. Basic types of ecological models: "black box" and conceptual models, multicomartment analysis.
4. Overview of basic methods of solution of ordinary and partial differential equations.
5. Computer model, analogy and digital modelling.
6. Verification and validation of computer model, analysis of uncertainty influences.
7. Equilibrium and kinetic models of partial models, fitting of parameters of partial processes.
8. Biological and environmental models of population dynamics.
