Scuola Invernale sul sistema GEOframe - January 8-17 2020 - Save the date

lunedì 01 luglio 2019 - 15:26

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 interested in estimating all the components of the hydrological cycle (rainfall, evapotranspiration, snow-melting, and river discharge), and the system they will learn allows to work out very small catchments and continental basins as well.

The aim of the course is to enable participants to run their own simulations on their own catchments and estimate the hydrological budget components.

With respect to the 2019 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:


January 8 - Installation and introduction to the Object Modelling System Infrastructure and Jupyter Notebook

January 9 - Interpolation of hydrometeorological datasets

January 10 - Hydrologic Response Units delineation

January 13 - Estimation of evapotranspiration - I

January 14 - Estimation of evapotranspiration - II

January 15 - Rainfall-Runoff - I

January 16 - Rainfall-Runoff - II

January 17 - Snow-Modelling


More detailed program will be available on October 1, 2019. However, who is interested can browse the 2019 Winter School.


Cost of the School is 350 Euros for who will subscribe before November 1, 400 Euros for others. However the number of participant will be limited to 25. A discount of 20 Euros is granted to fellows of the Italian Hydrological Society (subscriptions for students are available at the IHS-SII site for 10 Euros to students and 20 to seniors).


Teachers will be:

Riccardo Rigon, Ph.D.

Giuseppe Formetta, Ph.D.

Marialaura Bancheri, Ph.D.

Michele Bottazzi, Ph.D. candidate

Niccolò Tubini, Ph.D. candidate
