Training Course - 2D Hydrologic Modeling with GSSHA & WMS

Recommended Posts

There is still time to register for the training course "2D Hydrologic Modeling with GSSHA & WMS" May 12-15, 2009 in Provo, Utah. For more information, see:

http://www.aquaveo.com/gssha_training_provo

This will be the first course using WMS 8.2 and will be the first Aquaveo-sponsored course showing how to create 2D hydrologic models using GSSHA.

The introduction to 2D hydrologic modeling course begins with an overview of the hydrologic modeling capabilities available in the Watershed Modeling System (WMS). In the course, you will be introduced to the US Army Corps of Engineers Gridded Surface Subsurface Hydrologic Analysis (GSSHA) model and you will learn how to set up basic and advanced GSSHA models using WMS. GSSHA is a 2D hydrologic model that can be used to model basic watershed rainfall/runoff processes. GSSHA can also be used to model more advanced watershed processes such as wetland hydraulics, sediment erosion/deposition, spatially varying precipitation (RADAR rainfall), long-term simulation, and groundwater flow.

The 4-day course will familiarize attendees with the following topics:

  • Learn about images and coordinate systems in 2D hydrologic modeling
  • Use geographic information system (GIS) vector data, elevation data, and other spatial data with 2D hydrologic models
  • Easily obtain spatial data using web services
  • Delineate watersheds and sub-basins using data obtained from web services
  • Handle complex delineation scenarios such as urban areas, road embankments, and depressions
  • Develop lumped parameter and quasi-2D hydrologic models using the US Army Corps of Engineers Hydrologic Modeling System (HEC-HMS)
  • Develop basic GSSHA 2D hydrologic models incorporating overland flow, 1D stream routing, and infiltration
  • Modify basic GSSHA models to include more advanced watershed process such as wetland hydraulics, sediment erosion/deposition, spatially varying precipitation (RADAR rainfall), long-term simulation, and groundwater flow
  • Create basic and advanced GSSHA models for your area of interest with the assistance of the developers of GSSHA and WMS
  • Learn about resources available to help you learn more about GSSHA and WMS
