Training course - application of reservoir conservation model RESCON2
The training course will cover the application of Reservoir Conservation Model RESCON2 and takes place on 4-6 October in Bangkok, Thailand.
The workshop aims at providing an introduction in the issues of reservoir sustainability and its importance, reservoir sedimentation and its impacts on water infrastructure performance, planning and decision making of sediment management counter-measures.
The training course will comprise a description of the RESCON2 methodological approach and hands on training on the model set-up, application and finally results interpretation and post processing.
At the end of the workshop the attendees should be able to identify the risks associated with reservoir sedimentation and perform a systematic preliminary screening of the available state of the art sediment management techniques.
During the training several case studies from all over the world will be applied with the RESCON2 model.
These examples cover all type of application, from water supply and irrigation to hydropower, including run-of-river and storage schemes. All sediment management techniques will be demonstrated with the tool. Projects from the audience and participants can also be modeled together in order to identify and to discuss the various sediment management options available.
