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).

HYDROLOGICAL AND HYDRAULIC MODELLING WITH RS MINERVE TEACHING SESSION (VALENCIA, SPAIN)

A new teaching session in hydrological and hydraulic modelling with the RS MINERVE software has taken place the 16th and 17th of December at the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV). As part of the Master’s Degree programme in Hydraulic and Environment, this course has been jointly organised by the Department of Hydraulic Engineering and Environment (DIHMA) of the UPV, the CREALP and the Hydro10 association.

The objective of the course was to train participants in hydrological and hydraulic modelling through the use of different RS MINERVE modules and to test the knowledge acquired through the application of several practical cases. At the end of the course, the students were able to run RS MINERVE tools in their respective research works or other professional activities.

The teaching session has been conducted in Spanish by the specialists Javier Hernández García and Javier Fluixá Sanmartín from the CREALP, as well as the Professor Javier Paredes Arquiola from the UPV.

COURSE ON ‘HYDROLOGICAL SIMULATION ON COMMAND LINE WITH RS MINERVE’ IN LIMA (PERU) – DECEMBER 2015

A course about ‘Hydrological simulation on command line with RS MINERVE’ have been held on December 3rd and 4th  2015 in the Headquarters of the National Service of Meteorology and Hydrology of Peru (SENAMHI), in Lima, Peru.

This course, addressed to the staff of the SENAMHI, focused on the real-time exploitation of hydrological models build with RS MINERVE. Firstly, the new features of the software were shown to the participants. Then, they were taught in basic concepts of programming with VBScript. Finally, several exercices were used for applying the learned abilities in practical cases.

The course, taught by Javier 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), Care Perú, and the Proyecto Glaciares+ .

Next courses with RS MINERVE in Lima, Peru and Valence, Spain

The next courses with RS MINERVE, organized by the CREALP, will take place on 3 and 4 December in Lima and on 16 and 17 December in Valencia, Spain.

First course in Lima will be a course on ‘Hydrological and hydraulic simulations in command line with RS MINERVE’ and will explain the use of the program for real-time operational systems as well as for research projects needing an important amount of simulations or special requirements.

Second course in Valence will be a course on ‘Hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE’ as part of the Master’s Degree programme in Hydraulic and Environment, and will explain main aspects of the software, such as the new automatic creation of hydrological models from GIS shapefiles.

As usual, both courses will combine theoretical and practical sessions to provide the knowledge required to model hydrological basins with the help of RS MINERVE.
