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.

 

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).

Course ‘Hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE’ in EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland) – January 2015

Another session of the course ‘Hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE’ was held on January 28th and 29th 2015 at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. The course was oriented to  end users, including engineering offices, administrations and researchers. The training was attended by 24 participants.

As for previous courses, theoretical presentations and application exercises provided the knowledge required to model hydrological basins with the help of RS MINERVE. External speakers have presented examples of hydrological applications in real projects.

In addition to the 2 days training, participants had the option to achieve at home a personal application project , proposed by the training team. Support was provided to help the participants in their work. The submitted reports were of high quality and participants showed to have well understood the functioning of RS MINERVE.

The course, taught by Javier García Hernández, Alain Foehn, Samuel Alesina and Javier Fluixá Sanmartín, from the Centre de recherche sur l’environnement alpin (CREALP) and some members of the Steering committee of Hydro10, was organized by the CREALP in collaboration with the Laboratory of Hydraulic Constructions from EPFL,  the Technical University of Valencia (Spain) and the Hydro10 Association.

 

Course ‘Hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE’ in Sion (Switzerland) – November 2014

The third installment of the course ‘Hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE’ in 2014, after those of Lima (Peru) and Parana (Argentina), was held on November 19th and 20th in the “Casernes” of Sion, Switzerland. Following a now proven pattern, theoretical and practical sessions were combined to provide the knowledge required to model hydrological basins with the help of RS MINERVE. As a direct example of application, the MINERVE operational system for flood forecasting and management in the Upper Rhone River basin was also presented. 15 participants, mainly civil servants associated with the Canton of Valais, took part with great interest and success. .

The course, taught by Javier García Hernández, Alain Foehn, Samuel Alesina and Javier Fluixá Sanmartín, from the Centre de recherche sur l’environnement alpin (CREALP) and some members of the Steering committee of Hydro10, was organized by the CREALP in collaboration with the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), the Technical University of Valencia (Spain) and the Hydro10 Association.

Course ‘Hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE’ in Lima (Peru) – May 2014

The course ‘Hydrological and hydraulic modelling with RS MINERVE’ has been held on May 6th to 8th 2014 in the Headquarters of the National Service of Meteorology and Hydrology of Peru (SENAMHI), in Lima, Peru. Theoretical and practical parts have been combined to provide the required knowledge to model hydrological basins with the help of RS MINERVE, one of the tools supported by Hydro10. About 30 participants from different Peruvian organizations have taken part with great interest and great success.

The course, taught by Javier García Hernández and Alain Foehn, from the Centre de recherche sur l’environnement alpin (CREALP) and both members of the Steering committee of Hydro10, 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 Férédale de Lausanne (EPFL).
