Global climate change can have the impact not only on characteristics of rainfall-runoff event, but also water regime of the catchment. It is important to investigate the existing data to detect such interaction for the assessment of future development. The objective of the research is to develop the statistical methodology to identify hydrological characteristics in the catchment, which is transferable for the different catchments. The project is carried out in the collaboration with The Global Runoff Data Center (GRDC) in BfG, which has been unifying the world wide collection of runoff data from different continents since 1988 under the auspices of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). For the purpose to formulate the hydrological regime, the impact of human activity, change of land use, structural modification of the river and methodological driving factors must be properly assessed through this project.
