This 3 part course is intended for both experienced and beginner HMS users who want to build an understanding of the new GIS tools. The course will cover data wrangling, GIS delineations, and model setup.
Format: x3, 3-hour recordings via the AWS learning platform
Cost: AUD$595 (includes GST)
This course is designed to be highly practical, with 9+ hours of training recordings.
The course will cover 3 main topics across 3 parts.
- Introduction to HEC program architecture and overview of HEC-HMS program structure
- Overview of the HEC-DSS data storage system, and how HEC programs interact with it.
- Downloading and preparing terrain data for HEC-HMS and using HEC-HMS catchment delineation tools to create a hydrological model
- Downloading and preparing meteorological data for HEC-HMS
- Creating and computing a simulation run
- Viewing model results
- Downloading and preparing observed, gauge data
- Applying gauge data to the hydrological model
- Calibration using HEC-HMS parameter optimisation for storm events
- Calibration using long term continuous simulation and flood frequency analysis using HEC-SSP
- Overview of parameters (loss, transform, reach-routing)
- Sensitivity analysis using HEC-HMS Monte-Carlo
- Downloading and preparing gridded rainfall data for an Australian catchment
- Using ARR gridded data within HEC-HMS
- Brief introduction to Storm Injector by Catchment Simulation Solutions for ARR 2019
- Importing basin model into Storm Injector
- Downloading point and gridded ARR 2019 data
- Computing peak flow, volume, and time to peak
- Interpreting box charts for adopted temporal pattern and critical duration
- Plotting hydrographs and rainfall hyetographs
- Post storm-injector modifications to hydrological model
- 9+ hours of recordings with unlimited access for 30-days
- Pre-and-post-course materials to go through via the AWS learning platform
