Aloha All,

The University of Hawaii-Manoa Natural Resources and Environmental Management Department, and Water Resources Research Center are organizing a HYDRUS 3D workshop during November 12- 13 2007 in Honolulu. Training will be at the University of Hawaii-Manoa and Housing will be in Waikiki , Honolulu , Hawaii .


The workshop begins with a detailed conceptual and mathematical description of water flow and solute transport processes in the vadose zone, followed by an overview of the use of finite element techniques for solving the governing flow and transport equations. Special attention is given to the highly nonlinear nature of the governing flow equation. Alternative methods for describing and modeling the hydraulic functions of unsaturated porous media are also described.


"Hands on" computer sessions will provide participants an opportunity to become familiar with the Windows based RETC, STANMOD, HYDRUS 1D, HYDRUS 2D HYDRUS 3D software packages. Emphasis will be on the preparation of input data for a variety of applications, including flow and transport in a vadose zone, variably saturated flow through a dam, flow and transport to a tile drain, and two dimensional leachate migration from a landfill through the unsaturated zone into groundwater. Calibration will be discussed and demonstrated using both one and two dimensional model inversions.


Registration fees: $ 450.00 before October 15 and $500.00 After October 15.


Housing in Waikiki : Room rates: $77.00 Deluxe Hotel Room and $84.00 for Ocean View Hotel Room.
