Workshops

Five workshops will be offered in parallel. Participants must bring their own laptops with software loaded.

Introductory SWAT (QSWAT)

This is a beginner course designed to introduce new users to the SWAT model, review necessary and optional inputs, and familiarize the user with the QGIS interfaces. It is assumed that attendees have a working knowledge of QGIS. The two-day course will not review basic concepts on QGIS usage prior to covering the SWAT/QGIS interface. Introductory workshop topics.

Advanced SWAT (SWAT-CUP)

This course will cover sensitivity analysis, model calibration with SWAT-CUP, and uncertainty analysis using the 2012 version of SWAT with the ArcGIS interface. SWAT-CUP is a computer program for calibration of SWAT models. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop with projects for debugging. Advanced workshop topics.

SWAT-MODFLOW 

This workshop will cover the basics of using MODFLOW to simulate groundwater flow in SWAT simulations. The SWAT-MODFLOW coupled model will be introduced and its use will be demonstrated using example datasets. Linking RT3D with SWAT-MODFLOW for simulating nutrient fate and transport in groundwater also will be presented.

WET (Water Ecosystem Tool)

WET is an open source QGIS plugin aiming to provide an easy-to-use tool for user adaptation and application of state-of-the-art aquatic ecosystem models, and model-based experimentation for research and management. Learn more about the workshop.

APEX (Agricultural Policy/Environmental eXtender)

This course was developed for use in whole farm/small watershed management. The model was constructed to evaluate various land management strategies considering sustainability, erosion, economics, water supply and quality, soil quality, plant competition, weather and pests. Learn more about the workshop.
