3rd Annual Workshop for Source – Australia's national hydrological modelling platform

Save the date! eWater's third annual workshop for Source will be held in Canberra on the 18-19 September, following the 17th International Riversymposium

Purpose

Annual Source workshops help you become better at using the Source modelling platform or information coming from Source models.

Source is used throughout Australia and in Asia for catchment and river system modelling, for integrated water resources management (IWRM) and to manage water quality, environmental water and urban water supply.  It has been adopted as Australia's national hydrological modelling platform.

Source 2014 is an opportunity for you to have discussions with the eWater development team, leading Source modellers and water managers who depend on modelling information.

Topics covered include river system modelling for water planning, catchments water quantity and quality modelling, urban water modelling, using models to explore trade-offs between competing objectives, and modelling to support environmental water management.

You can present your work and highlight a useful approach to modelling that you've found or seek discussion about a challenge you've encountered.

There is an opportunity to learn about the latest software plug-ins or to showcase ones you have developed.

Program

A draft program for Source 2014 will be refined with feedback from the Source Modelling Community.

Who should attend?

This workshop is an opportunity for hydrological modellers to become better at using Source and to meet with the eWater development team, leading Source modellers and others from the water management community.

Water managers who are not necessarily modellers, but who rely on data from hydrological models to help them conduct business or solve problems, can learn about how Source is used by other managers, and contribute to discussions about how models might help to solve some of the 'wicked' problems in water.
