In-depth Introduction of Tools for Hydrologic and Hydraulic Decision Support: Day 1

Tuesday 15 February 2022, 9 - 11.55 am ICT

This training event, from 15-17 February 2022, is part of an ongoing collaboration project for ‘Improved Hydrologic and Hydraulic Decision Support for the Mekong Basin,’ supported by the US, Republic of Korea and Lower Mekong countries.

On day 1 of the training, Professor Venkat Lakshmi, University of Virginia, will present on precipitation bias correction, and Dr Ibrahim Mohammed, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), will show participants how to use two web-enabled tools, NASAaccess and SWATOnline , for understanding climate, weather and hydrology information.

Prof. Lakshmi is the John L. Newcombe Professor of Engineering in the Department of Engineering Systems and the Environment at the University of Virginia. Dr Ibrahim Mohammed is a research scientist at NASA. He is currently leading a team from NASA and the Conservation International organization on assessment studies to improve water resources management along the Lower Mekong River, and the Rupununi River in Guyana, bordering the Brazilian Amazon.

This is the second in a series of six training events organized by the Sustainable Infrastructure Partnership with technical cooperation from the Mekong River Commission, the US Army Corps of Engineers, and NASA.

The training is for government officials in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Viet Nam, and officials at the Mekong River Commission secretariat. This course is for intermediate to advanced-level practitioners, who have substantial experience in hydrologic and hydraulic models, satellite-based data, and related data visualization tools.

Participation is by invitation.
