2013 2nd IAHR/WMO Training Course on Stream Gauging

Andong, Republic of Korea, 4~6 September 2013

 

 

 

■ Introduction
The Hydrology Commission of World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research(IAHR) have agreed to cooperate in the design and organization of a course on stream gauging based on the 2nd edition of the Manual of Stream Gauging (2010), and recent advancements in research, technology and instrumentation for hydrometry.
This course is the second of a series that will be organized worldwide by IAHR and WMO. Stream gauging is critical for routine monitoring of catchment and estuarine environments and for the provision of essential information for hydrological and hydraulic modeling of these environments. It is recognized that continued education and training on methods for hydrometric data collection, validation and publication are the backbone for the consolidation and dissemination of a ‘hydrological culture’.

Such a culture has been and is becoming increasingly important at a time when water resources are stressed by climate and anthropogenic impacts. These new challenges call for improved instruments and methodologies to support integrated river basin management (especially for trans-boundary watersheds) and analyses of future alternative scenarios.

 

■ Objective
The course aims at providing a primer to the new edition of the WMO Manual of Stream Gauging, published in 2010, by describing both conventional methods as well as recent technological advancements in stream gauging (with special emphasis on recent advances in the hydroacoustic and image-based instruments).

 

■ Audience
Managers, professionals and technicians of hydrological and hydro-meteorological services, water engineers, staff of public water authorities, private water services, hydropower companies, Master and PhD Students. Max. 60 registered attendants

 

■ Language
The workshop main language is English. Training material will be also in English, including the WMO Manual on Stream gauging.
