About the Workshop
This two-day workshop focusses on water modelling and technologies and will explore how eWater Source is being applied in India and as a technology knowledge sharing platform underpinning sustainable water policy.
The workshop will include both technical details of Source functionality and demonstrated applications.
Day 1 will include an opening address by Prof A.K. Gosain of IIT Delhi and Dr Robert Carr, CEO of eWater Solutions. This will be followed by presentations of Source modelling work by:
- Indian Central Water Commission on the Brahmani-Baitarni River Basin
- Government of Maharashtra on the development of a Source model of the Upper Godavari River Basin
- Government of Karnataka on Source modelling in the Tunghabadra River Basin
- IIT Delhi PhD Student Sankalp Lahari on an Introduction to the Four Basins Source modelling work
- IIT Delhi PhD student and Superintending Engineer Haryana Irrigation Department Gurgaon Mr Shiv Singh Rawat on Integrated model of Haryana Canals and Upper Yamuna catchment
- Ms Rachel Blakers, eWater on Source modelling project in the Mekong region.
In the afternoon, Mr Tom Roberts, eWater Senior Software Developer will deliver a presentation and demonstration of the technology platform in Source, including the open framework environment, scenario input sets, plugins and other aspects of eWater’s open collaborative framework approach.
Day 2 will be for participants who wish to gain introductory hands-on experience for new Source users, or a quick refresher for those who have had training previously and would like to update to the new release version.
The workshop is free and open to the public, but please register as places are limited.
Share experiences in applying eWater Source to River Basins in India. Learn the fundamentals of developing river basin models in Source. Learn about the latest release of eWater Source and the open framework approach for sharing models and knowledge.
Hear from modelling experts about applications of Source in Australia, by the Murray-Darling River Basin Authority, and in the Mekong Region.
