Courses about ‘Hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE’ in Lima (Peru) – May 2016

Two courses (beginner and advanced) about ‘Hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE’ were held on May 17th to 19th and on May 20th 2016 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. 42 participants from different Peruvian organizations and consulting enterprises took 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 different modules of RS MINERVE where revealed. Then, a practical exercise allowed the participants to become experts in hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE. 31 participants took part in this second course.

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