This course will be taught by James Craig, associate professor and Canada Research Chair in hydrological modelling and analysis with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Waterloo.
The RAVEN Hydrological Modelling Framework is an easy-to-use software built for developing both simple and complex watershed models. Built for use in Canada, you can apply your hydrological models to a variety of different Canadian landscape units. It also contains an array of diagnostic tools to improve model quality.
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Apply RAVEN to flood forecasting, reservoir management, water budgets and transportation simulation
- Apply, test, modify and interpret simple models
- Understand the modeliling workflow process, I.O, and basic implementation details
- Understand the extended capabilities of RAVEN including the logistics associated with advanced hydrological models
Perform calibration of a Raven model using the Ostrich software
Use tools in R to analyze Raven files and generate plots
Participants are required to have their computer during the course. Please have the software (www.civil.uwaterloo.ca/jrcraig/Raven/Main.html) downloaded to your computer prior to the course.
