1st Surfacewater-Groundwater Interactions Workshop

Wednesday 24 September 2008

The Surfacewater-Groundwater Interactions Workshop is a collaborative effort of eWater CRC, CSIRO and the Centre for Groundwater Studies

This 3 day course is designed to summarise the current state of knowledge on modelling surfacewater-groundwater interaction (covering conceptual, analytical and numerical approaches) in relation to connected river systems where double accounting of water is a specific issue. Examples highlighting the Australian experience to date will be presented, drawing on the results of a number of recent eWater CRC, CSIRO and other projects.

This introductory course aims to present the concepts and theory behind the modelling of surfacewater-groundwater interaction, and to illustrate the development of appropriate modelling approaches. The course will alternate between lectures and computer-based exercises to illustrate the key modelling methods. Attendees will gain a good understanding of the range of available modelling approaches and how data availability and the spatial and temporal scales of the particular management or policy issue in question determines the most appropriate approach. The course will provide attendees a good overview of the modelling options, without specialising in one particular approach or modelling package.
