Training on Hydrological and Hydraulic Modelling
Venue: Geoinformatics Center, Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok, Thailand
This course is designed to develop skills and knowledge on the application of hydrological and hydraulic models for river basins for an effective flood risk management.
Floods have been a dramatic interaction between man and nature from the beginning of the civilization and they are the source of rejuvenation and losses. The fight to conquer or live with the floods remains a matter of how we perceive the threat and what measures are available at our disposal. If we are able to foresee the hazard, we can estimate the vulnerability and this helps to take countermeasures to reduce the damage and loss. With the advances in numerical modelling, remote sensing technology and geographical information system (GIS), it is now possible to simulate floods as well as possible consequences. Hydrologic models are used to estimate the runoff from rainfalls over a catchment while hydrodynamic models can be used to prepare flood hazard maps. Both types of models can be used together to determine flood hazard for effectively manage the flood risk.
Module I: Introduction to remote sensing and GIS
Module II: Introduction to hazard and risk
Module III: Catchment modelling
Module IV: Hydrological modelling
Module V: Hydraulic modelling
Module VI: Statistical methods in hydrology
Participants will accomplish the following from the training:
• Basic concepts of Remote Sensing and GIS
• Application of Remote Sensing and GIS in DEM analysis, catchment delineation, etc.
• Hands-on practical on hydrologic and hydraulic modelling
• Time series and frequency analysis
