Modelling Environments for Biophysical Modelling in Hydrology and Agriculture

Modelling Environments for Biophysical Modelling in Hydrology and Agriculture: Object Modeling System 3 (OMS3) and Biophysical Model Applications (BioMA)

July 9-13, 2012

Joint Research Centre, European Commission, Ispra, Italy

The need for integrated analysis, and the multiplicity of possible goals in analysis which require biophysical modelling, necessitates more than ever the capability of composing modelling solutions of known quality which are transparent to users and consist of reusable model components.

There is a variety of modelling platforms and the number of model components and tools is growing; however, there is little interaction among developers of modelling platforms and the potential community of researchers who may benefit from new techniques and technologies in their work. This workshop is meant to provide this opportunity by illustrating the concepts at the base of two modelling frameworks, and by having a hands-on approach to both. The two modelling environments which will be presented are the Object Modeling System (OMS3) and the Biophysical Model Application (BioMA), briefly described below. Both are operational and allow running complex analyses in the biophysical domains of hydrology and agricultural production. The closing session will include a critical discussion on the concepts and realizations experienced during the week.

More Information on the website of the course.  OMS3 as you can verify from many post:

is at the core of my modeling strategy. I believe is one of the best way to have a modern approach to do models. So the school will be the occasion to learn about it (for who is already a good programmer)

  1. Could you share your impression on BioMA vs. OMS3. Of course you must be biased towards OMS3, but anyway it would be interesting to know what you thing about the two technologies compared.
