Workshop: Hydrologic Modelling with the Raven Framework
October 5, 2023 9 AM – 5PM
Short Course Objectives
This course is intended to provide an accelerated introduction to the Raven Hydrologic Modelling Framework. By the end of the course, each participant should:
- have an improved appreciation for the capacity of Raven for flood forecasting, reservoir management, water budgeting, and transport simulation
- be able to apply, test, modify, and interpret simple models built with Raven and Raven-UBCWM,
- understand the modelling workflow process , I/O, and basic implementation details
- have an understanding of the extended capabilities of Raven; understand the logistics associated with building and testing more advanced Raven models
- Have an improved appreciation for the challenges of trustworthy model development

Workshop: ADCP Training Hosted by North American Stream Hydrographers (NASH)
NASH is pleased to announce it will be hosting an ADCP training event alongside the BC CWRA Branch in Richmond, BC. This training event will take place over two days beginning at 2pm on Wednesday, October 4 and all day on Thursday, October 5, 2023. The event will take place at the Radisson Hotel at 8181 Cambie Road, Richmond, BC with lunch and refreshments provided on Day 2. A networking event will follow on Day 1 at the hotel restaurant and bar.
Come train alongside industry experts on hydrometric techniques and instrumentation used in challenging ADCP flow conditions. This training event focuses on the best practices through a live ADCP demonstration on Day 1 on The Mighty Fraser River. Participants on Day 1 will have the opportunity to watch streamside (weather dependent) or through a Microsoft Team’s live feed at the hotel. Day 2 will allow participants the opportunity to develop their best practices through discussions and presentations by industry experts on the following topics:
Initial Data Review – through standardized data collection platforms and Qrev.
Discussions and Presentations – on best practices around data interpretation for bottom tracking, bank and side lobe interference, water surface extrapolation, and velocity profile
Best Practices – for measurements in challenging environments with surface extrusions
Index Velocity – a presentation on the HADCP index velocity station on the Fraser River
NASH training workshops provide an invaluable discussion forum for hydrometric data collection. Please bring weather appropriate clothing and high visibility vests if planning to attend the outdoor portion of the event on Day 1.
