MIKE FLOOD RIVER This two-day course in Auckland teaches you river flood modelling by integrating the 1D river model (MIKE HYDRO River) and 2D overland flow model (MIKE 21). The emphasis is on establishing a 2D overland flow model followed by coupling the 1D and 2D model components to simulate the fully integrated flow dynamics between main rivers and surrounding flood plain areas.

MIKE ECO LAB In this two-day course in Auckland, you will receive a hands-on introduction to MIKE ECO Lab and learn how to set up basic and advanced water quality models in the MIKE FM modelling complex. The course will also include an introduction to agent based modelling using ABM Lab. The overall aim is to allow you to introduce water quality modelling into your own work and showcase how modelling combined with monitoring provides more environmental insights with lower operational costs.

Webinar: How can digital tools support future marine EIAs? Join this 1-hour webinar which will present DHI outlook on future easy-to-use online tools for marine EIAs (Environmental Impact Assessments), show you examples and discuss how digitalization can be used to easier implement new science for assessing or screening for environmental impacts. Fee: Free of charge, Time: 07:00-08:00 UTC. Online Register

1 day
Webinar: Quantifying effects on catchment load reductions of water quality In this webinar the use of coupled land based contaminant generation and marine receiving environment models are presented. Long term model simulations were undertaken to define the Microbiological Assessment Category at key sites within the Porirua Harbour and how this may change under different future land use scenarios. The outcomes of the modelling have been used to develop a programme of work for the future management of the Porirua Harbour catchment. Time (NZT): Thursday, 7 May 2020, 12:00 pm Online Register

Webinar: Introduction to meshes flexibility in FELOW: layered, partially unstructured or fully unstructured meshes During this free 45 minute webinar including a Q&A session, we will introduce you to how FEFLOW is supported by a sophisticated mesh generation algorithm and interfaces to a number of geological modelling frameworks. Groundwater models in demanding geological settings can now be set up more easily than ever before. The new meshing options are especially helpful for the precise mapping of inclined boreholes, inclined faults or any underground structures 18:00 UTC (2:00 pm EST) Online Register

Webinar: Understanding effects of land use change on the marine receiving environment In this webinar the use of fully coupled wave, hydrodynamic and sediment transport models are presented. The marine models use flow and sediment load estimates from catchment models to provide an understanding of the relative role of existing seabed sediments and catchment derived sediments. The suite of models are then used to quantify the effects of potential land use change within the catchments on deposition rates and suspended sediment concentrations.
