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.
