River Basin Modelling

IHE Delft Institute for Water Education

Certificate / Diploma Short course Delft

Course description

Qualification Certificate
Field of study Agriculture and environment
Course summary River Basin Modelling course provides competencies for assessment and appropriate application of alternative modelling software systems, primarily for planning and design problems in river basins.
Course description The short course in River Basin Modelling is designed for professionals (engineers and scientists) active in the water sector, especially those involved in using simulation models for river basin modelling. Pre-requisites are a basic knowledge of hydraulics and hydrology. The course aims at providing participants with a comprehensive understanding of the multi-purpose nature of river basins and model-based approaches to their integrated planning and management. The course covers the fundamentals of modelling, and how to build and apply reliable models for basin wide water allocation, groundwater and catchment management. During the course practical applications of modelling systems are demonstrated, involving testing of different management alternatives with fully integrated models. The three main topics of the course are introduced through computer–based hands-on exercises with appropriate modelling packages: • Basin-wide water allocation - RIBASIM; • Groundwater modelling – Processing MODFLOW; • Catchment and river modelling -MIKE SHE / MIKE 11 and SWAT;
