Dear All,

this is announce that the fifth edition of the Winter School on GEOframe-NewAge will take place at the Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical engineering of the University of Trento on December 05-07, 2022 and January 09-13, 2023.

The school aims to help you in understanding the basic principles of physical hydrology and modeling each component of the hydrological cycle (i.e. rainfall, snow, evapotranspiration, runoff, root-zone water content and groundwater flow). 

We will explore different the modelling solutions available in the GEOframe system to quantify catchment water budget.

You can find any information at the link:

GEOframe is a system for doing hydrology by computer. By saying that it is a system, we emphasise that it is not a model but an infrastructure that contain many differentiated modelling solutions (some tens of that), which are built upon models’ components. Each modeling solution represent the optimal model’s combination to quantify the single component of the hydrological cycle in any study area (i.e. spatially varying rainfall, snow, evapotranspiration, runoff, root-zone water content and groundwater levels) at any time resolution (i.e. from sub-hourly to yearly). GEOframe leverage on the Object Modelling system-framework (v3) that allows to connect modelling components to solve a specific hydrological issue together and having many alternative for its mathematical/numerical description. This infrastructure allows adapting the tools to the problems and not viceversa. GEOframe has been applied to hydrological simulations from the point scale to large catchments as the Blue Nile, and among those is being deployed to the Po river basin (the largest in Italy), with high temporal and spatial resolution. GEOframe is open source and built with open-source tools.

The school is free of charge for the members of the Young Hydrological Society and Società Idrologica Italiana (SII).
