This workshop will focus on DEM-based approaches in hydrological applications using GRASS. Digital Elevation Models (DEM) contain simple information such as an array of elevation data that may represent an extraordinary source of knowledge in several fields: hydrology, ecology, agronomy and engineering. The workshop will cover using GRASS with DEMs to:
- Predict surface water routing
- Estimate expected solar radiation
- Describe the structure of a river network
- Describe basin morphology/connectivity, and flood prone areas
This workshop assumes prior knowledge of Bash and the Linux command line and basic knowledge of GIS concepts (basin, flow accomulation, stream order, etc ).
Participants will need a pre-installed Linux virtual machine on their own laptops to follow the workshop.
The course will be taught by YCRC’s Giuseppe Amatulli, Ph.D., Research Scientist in GeoComputation and Spatial Science.
