The second edition on the Winter School on GEOframe will be held between January 8 and 17, 2020 in Trento, Italy. The course is devoted to Ph.D. Students, Post-docs, Young researchers (and Professionals!) interested in estimating all the components of the hydrological cycle (rainfall, evapotranspiration, snow-melting, and river discharge). The system they will learn allows to work out very small catchments and continental basins as well (e.g. Abera et al., 2017a,b) up to build operational solutions as the one used in in Basilicata.
The aim of the course is to enable participants to run their own simulations and eventually on their own catchments and estimate the hydrological budget components.
With respect to the 2019 Winter School, there will be more practice and more detailed work on evapotranspiration and rainfall-runoff. It will be much more focused on exercises and on getting the water budget performed under various hypotheses on models' structure.
The provisional topics will be:
Teachers will be:
Prof. Riccardo Rigon, Ph.D.
Prof. Giuseppe Formetta, Ph.D.
Marialaura Bancheri, Ph.D.
Michele Bottazzi, Ph.D. candidate
Niccolò Tubini, Ph.D. student
Daniele Dalla Torre, research assistant
The provisional topics will be:
- January 8 - Installation and introduction to the Object Modelling System Infrastructure and Jupyter
- January 9 - Interpolation of hydrometeorological datasets and elements of parameters calibration with LUCA and particle swarm tools
- January 10 - Hydrologic Response Units delineation and treatment of spatial features.
- January 13 - Estimation of evaporation and transpiration
- January 14 - Rainfall-Runoff I - Representation of semidistributed models with the Extended Petri Nets. The embedded reservoir (ERM -see also here) and other available models. Discussing inputs data to models and modelling solutions.
- January 15 - Rainfall-Runoff - II - How Net3 works (see also here). Preparing the topology and the simulation files. Connecting and disconnecting components. Running modelling solutions.
- January 16 - Rainfall-Runoff - III Calibration issues, multisite calibrations and first results production
- January 17 - Results production and presentation. Hints for estimating travel times. Crowd-based-hydrology.
To have an idea of the topics, the interested researchers should give look at the material (slides, video etc. of the 2019 Winter School). The material of the first three days remains very similar (but refined) to the old one. Therefore, for students is possible also to participate only to the second week (at the same cost, but saving some lodging) but, in that case, is mandatory to follow the on-line courses and tutorials relative of 8-9-10 January topics and having done the exercises before December 15. We will offer prompt online support to them up to that date and no support whatsoever on the same topics later or between 13-17 of January for clear reasons of course efficiency and organisation. The refined material of the first three days will be available on the Winter School website from November 15, 2019.
With respect to the 2019 School, there will be more practice and more detailed material on Evapotranspiration and Rainfall-Runoff. For every 40 minutes of talk there will be 70 minutes of supervised exercise for a total of 8 hour a day of activities.
