Courses about ‘Hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE’ in Lima (Peru) – April 2015

Two courses (beginner and advanced) about ‘Hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE’ have been held on April 13th to 15th and on April 16th and 17th 2015 in the Headquarters of the National Service of Meteorology and Hydrology of Peru (SENAMHI), in Lima, Peru.

In the first course, for beginners, theoretical and practical parts have been combined to provide the required knowledge to model hydrological basins with the help of RS MINERVE. 35 participants from different Peruvian organizations and consulting enterprises have taken part with a great interest and success.

In the second course, for advanced users which already followed the course for beginners in 2014 or 2015, the details of the RS GIS and the RS Expert modules where revealed. Then, a practical exercise allowed the participants to become experts in hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE. About 25 participants took part in this course, with a big success that predicts another time two courses for 2016.

The courses, taught by J. García Hernández and J. Fluixá Sanmartín, from the Centre de recherche sur l’environnement alpin (CREALP-Switzerland) and by J. Paredes Arquiola, from Technical University of Valence (UPV-Spain), was organized in collaboration with the SENAMHI, the CREALP, the University of Zurich, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), Meteodat, Care Perú, ProyectoGlaciares and the Ecole Polytechnique Fédédale de Lausanne (EPFL).
