Upcoming Webinars

10 Apr
1 day
DHI NZ WEBINAR: Heavy Metals In Urban Waterways: Causes and Consequences This free, 30-minute webinar discusses different aspects of heavy metal contamination in urban water ways, with examples both nationally and internationally. In addition, you will get an overview of the necessary mitigation options, for both freshwater and coastal receiving environments, to support decision making. Topics you will cover: Heavy metal ecotoxicity Catchment loads In-stream concentration Metal bioavailability Metal accumulation Mitigation options Online Register
8 May
1 day
DHI NZ WEBINAR: Modelling Water Quality in Rivers – Black Box or White Box? Monitoring of river water quality informs the public of potential health risks posed by contact with water. Predictive models used for forecasting can be of two types – white box (deterministic based) or black box (regression based). In this webinar, you will hear an overview of both types of modelling approaches and recommendations on their applications. Online Register
5 Jun
1 day
DHI NZ WEBINAR: Wetlands For Water Sensitive Cities Urban Water Transitions Framework identifies six distinct developmental “states” of a city on its path to increased water sensitivity. The highest state is the water sensitive city, which is based on holistic management of the integrated water cycle to protect and enhance the health of receiving waterways. In this webinar, you will hear how wetlands are the key technology in the design of water sensitive cities for sustainable urban water management. Online Register
13 Jun
1 day
MIKE URBAN This free, 1.5-hour intermediate level webinar provides insight into real time control modeling of collection systems. The aim is to enable you to set up a reliable real time control model and to analyze and present the simulation results. MIKE URBAN CS is a GIS-based software system for the data management and modelling of surface runoff, flows, water quality and sediment transport in urban catchments and collection systems. 15:00-16:30 UTC (11:00 am EST) Online
20 Jun
1 day
SUSTAINABLE TOURISM DEVELOPMENT Effective waterfront management and development requires an in-depth understanding of the coastal water environment and controlling processes to assure long-term sustainability. In addition, tourist facilities are increasingly vulnerable to climate change impacts such as hurricanes and floods. In this free, one-hour webinar, we’ll reveal how better preparedness secures your most valuable assets resulting in significant investment and operational savings. 15:00-16:00 UTC (11:00am EST) Online
27 Jun
