PhD Course on "Spatial Analysis for Water Resources Modeling and Management"

The Course will be given at the Politecnico di Torino - DIATI - July 11-14, 2016

Instructor: Prof. Ramesh S. V. Teegavarapu (Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatics Engineering, Florida Atlantic University)

Course Description
This course presents a comprehensive review of spatial analysis methods and tools that are critical for analysis, modeling and management of hydrologic, environmental and water resource systems. 
The course emphasizes on three issues: (1) analysis, (2) methodologies and (3) techniques. The course provides an exhaustive background and in-depth review of spatial point patterns, statistics, and geographical information systems and discusses methods to evaluate spatial information, clusters, interpolation methods, generation of spatially varying inputs to distributed hydrologic models, and approaches for hydrometeorological monitoring network design. Spatial analysis methods and their applications for watershed and water resources management will be discussed and elaborated in this course.
