Program description

This course aims to equip participants with the necessary conceptual and practical knowledge to acquire and process DTMs for parameterization in hydrology.

Process-based models are created in order to simulate and understand the relationships between natural processes under certain physical rules and conditions. Models range from very simple 1D models to complex models that involve many parameters and are capable of simulating a 4D environment (x,y,z and time). Recently, many modellers have fully adopted the use of digital terrain models (DTMs) and other thematic maps as part of the input parameters for these hydrological models. Catchment topography has a major impact on the hydrological processes active in the landscape.

This course aims to equip participants with the necessary conceptual and practical knowledge to acquire and process DTMs for parameterization in hydrology. This course is relevant for professionals who are engaged in any of the geosciences, natural sciences or engineering sciences and who have a basic knowledge of hydrology, remote sensing, digital image processing and GIS.

Subjects
Digital Terrain Model definition and production using remote sensing; extraction of relevant hydrological parameters (such as slope, aspect, drainage network and (sub)catchment boundaries); integration of these parameters in a hydrological model.

Objectives
This course aims to equip the participant with conceptual and practical knowledge to acquire and process Digital Terrain Models for parameterization of Hydrological models.
