The main goals of the research program are: 1. Development of general ecological models for the simulation of transport and dispersion of pollutants in surface waters. Simulations of different types of pollutants will be carried out e.g. chemical, (often toxic) pollutants, nutrients, oil spill, thermal pollution etc. Possibility of simulation of specific bio-chemical processes will be included in the models. This part of the research is fundamental, but the models will also be used to solve practical problems of water pollution. The models can also be used as an efficient tool for prediction of impact of different pollution events, and to find out effectiveness of different possible prevention or remediation measures. Finally the models can be used as a tool when solving problems of the water management. 2. Preparation of the methodology of an integrated management for solving the problems of water quality and environmental protection, from the water source to the sea, e.g. simulation of surface runoff and erosion together with pollutant transport from the entire watershed, (application of GIS), further on simulation of transport of flow of water and pollutants over the river system (application of 1-D or 2D numerical models) and simulation of circulation and dispersion of pollutants in the sea (application of our models, described under 1). 3. Further development of 2-D and 3-D hydrodynamic models, capable to simulate the flow in rivers, lakes and in the sea. Practical applications of this models in rivers is the forecast of the extent of floods at high waters, simulation of waves in head- and tailrace channels of HEPPs, or waves due to possible collapse of dams. It is possible to simulate different measures for flood prevention, and also to determine the most effective measures, therefore the models are also becoming tools in the water management studies. 4. Use of methods of artificial intelligence with the development of ecological models on the basis of data analysis. 5. Study of re-organization of water management in Slovenia, in accordance with the EU Water Framework Directive, development of the “vertical report” for Slovenia. 6. Development and application of measuring technique for measurement of flow and pollutant dispersion in surface waters. 7. Research in engineering ecology, development of methodology for protection of water quality, writing directives for protection of surface waters. 8. Development of modern technology of waste- and drinking water treatment. Application of 2D and 3D numerical models for analysis of circulation and sedimentation processes in settling tanks of waste-water treatment plants, and experiments of these processes on pilot plants.
