In-depth Introduction of Tools for Hydrologic and Hydraulic Decision Support: Day 3

Thursday 17 February 2022, 9 am - 3 pm 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 the morning of day 3, Dr Calvin Creech and Neema Nejad of the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will demonstrate an approach to integrating the SWAT (Soil and Water Assessment Tool) data with the RAS (River Analysis System) model. An example from Latin America will be presented.

Dr. Calvin Creech is a Lead Interdisciplinary Engineer working in Latin America Programs at USACE. Neema Nejad is a computer scientist at USACE.

In the afternoon, participants from the National Mekong Committees (NMCs) in the four Lower Mekong countries, the Mekong River Commission, and Pact will discuss trainees’ feedback and next steps in the partnership.

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 the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (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.
