Online Course: Hydrological Modeling with QSWAT

QSWAT is an implementation of the Soil & Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) in QGIS. The model was developed to quantify the impact of land managenemet in large basins. It combines a hydrological model with a water quality model. It works on HRUs or hidrological response units, a computational unit of area with homogeneous hydrological conditions and land cover. QSWAT is available only on the 32 bit version of QGIS 2.6 as a QGIS plugin.

QSWAT can simulate the water cycle in basins to determine the impacts in a period of time taking into account multiple variables. Also, this model is used to predict the effects of land use and management in water flow, amount of sediments and chemistry in basins, mainly in basins that do not have previous monitoring information. It is also used in big and complex basins that have a variety of different types of soils and management practices. Hatarilabs offers the virtual course of Hydrological Modeling with QSWAT for students and professionals of any country. To access the available material and receive support, you just have to make a payment. The course includes certification.

Online Course: Management and Interpretation of Water Chemistry Data

The current environmental activity and the demands of regulatory bodies require intense monitoring of the quantity and quality of ground and surface water. Given that, the water cycle processes are spatially and temporally distributed, there is a special emphasis on interpreting water chemistry data in a way that provides "information" about the original state of water resources, natural variations and the impact related the implementation of projects.

Hatarilabs offers the virtual course of Management and Data Interpretation of Water Chemistry for students and professionals of any country. Now you can train in Water Chemistry Data Management and Interpretation without any established schedule anywhere. To access the available material and receive support, you just have to make a payment. The course includes certification.

Online Course: Hydraulic River Modelling with Hec Ras

HEC-RAS is a software designed to perform hydraulic 1D and 2D calculations on river channels either natural or man constructed. It allows steady flow, unsteady flow, sediment transport and water quality modelling. It is developed by the US army corps of engineers, US Department of defence and it is openly available software. The HEC-RAS steady flow is based on one dimensional energy equation, while for the unsteady flow, HEC-RAS uses an implicit, finite difference method to solve the fully dynamic Saint-Venant equations.

The objective of HEC-RAS is to solve river dynamics and river engineering problems. Applications are delimitation of flood areas, embankment and protection work design, river restoration, emergency plans for dam break, optimization of hydraulic work and risk assessment and management.

Online Course: Geographical Information System (GIS) in Water Resources Management with QGIS

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are a powerful platform to develop solutions in water resources such as the estimation of water quality, the status of groundwater and the management of water resources at the regional and local scales. Because water varies spatially and temporally throughout the water cycle, its study, using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), is particularly practical.

This course is theoretical and practical to know the different tools of the GIS and its applications to the management of water resources. No prior knowledge of GIS is required and is based on free software programs such as QGIS.
