Training “Hydrological-hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE”

A course on hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE will take place on January 28 and 29 2015, at EPFL in Lausanne. The training is organized by the research centre CREALP, the Laboratory of Hydraulics Constructions (LCH) of EPFL, the Technical University of Valencia (UPV) and the Hydro10 Association.

The objective of this course is to provide foundational skills for hydrological-hydraulic modelling and to understand related problems.

First, the basics of hydrological systems will be presented for the interpretation of modelling results. Then, the RS MINERVE software is introduced to participants on the basis of a practical case study. Participants learn to approach modelling problems as a whole, from the definition of the hydrological basin to the calculation and analysis of simulation results.

The training will be given in french.

MOOC « Des rivières et des hommes »

A Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) about hydrology, hydraulic and fluvial geomorphology applied to rivers management, proposed in French, will start on November 3rd 2014. The course will discuss the dynamic of developed rivers, the threats they are exposed to and the threats they pose to their neighborhood, in particular floods.

The course is proposed by the French web platform FUN that offers free online courses with a broad variety of subjects. The expected work during the 5 weeks of the course is about 2.5 to 5 hours per week and in a second optional phase, participants can achieve a personal project.

For more information, see the page of the course.


International Conference on DROUGHT

From 10th to 13th March 2015 the Technical University of Valencia (UPV), active member of Hydro10, will be hosting the International Conference on Drought Research and Science-Policy Interfacing. The event aims to discuss drought related research and the advances on response policies in order to foster the development of Drought Policies. Three consecutive thematic sessions will focus on three main drought issues:

  • (1) Past, present and future of droughts;
  • (2) Drought indicators, monitoring and forecasting;
  • (3) Drought preparedness and mitigation options.

On Wednesday 11th March, a special session will be devoted to the 4th pan-European Drought Dialogue Forum.

UPV is pleased to invite you to attend the conference and to submit an abstract before 31st July 2014. You can find more information in the attached call for abstracts and on the website:
