National Water Academy(NWA), Pune, WMO, and COMET are organizing a International Distance Learning Course in Advanced Topics in Hydraulics, Hydrological Sciences and Hydrometeorology for RA-II for professionals working in hydrological forecasting and design flood analysis in Asian Region ( WMO RA II) , from 7 March - 16 April 2016.

This advanced course is designed to meet the needs of hydrological forecasters who require more advanced training in selected hydraulic and hydrological modeling topics. This course is especially for the participants that have successfully completed the Basic Course or who have requisite knowledge on the subject.
 

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

* Understand distributed hydrological models for flow forecasting
* Have a basic understanding of methods and techniques used in ensemble stream-flow prediction
* Describe basic features of the dam failure modelling process
* Understand various aspects of tropical meteorology, including rainfall analysis and forecasting
* Understand Climate variability and Change
* Define key motivations and purposes of performing forecast verification

This is is the Second African Region- Distance Learning Course in Hydrology: Basic Hydrologic Sciences

IMTR in collaboration with WMO, the COMET Program and NWS/NOAA are organizing the Second Distance Learning Course in Hydrology I: Basic Hydrological Sciences for professionals working in hydrological forecasting in the African Region, from 24th August to 9th October 2015.

The course is designed to meet the needs of environmental forecasters who do not have formal training in hydrology, but who work with hydrologic data, particularly in flood forecasting. The course (in English only) is intended to provide an understanding of ground, surface, and atmospheric forms of water, and will prepare the student for further study in hydrologic methods and forecasting.

This course is designed for hydro technicians in the Pacific Island region. It is being offered by New Zealand's National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research with support by the WMO and UCAR's COMET Program. The primary objective is to learn how to perform measurements and system maintenance for streamflow equipment and rain gauges.
