STANDARD TRAINING COURSES


CLIMATE CHANGE AND FLOODING THE ACADEMY by DHI provides training courses and packages that enable you to develop flexible and robust strategies for adaptation to climate change and for handling various scenarios. Thus, we provide training relating to, for example, urban climate change, flooding of rivers, flood forecasting and early warning, and coastal flooding. We also provide training in using our software tools to improve your activities related to flooding, thereby enabling you to choose optimal solutions to complex problems. Our palette of courses and capacity building packages is designed to fit your needs and challenges. We offer standard and/or tailored training face-2-face as well as online. The climate is changing and becoming more uncertain. Some areas are bound to get wetter with more flooding and other places to become drier with a serious need of water. Early warning and forecasting of floods is vital for future generations and crucial for efficient emergency response and contingency action planning. Water quality in general and the supply of safe drinking water in particular is deeply affected by climate change and flooding. Flexible management, tools and strategies are vital.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

MIKE FLOOD Integrated 1D and 2D river flood modelling

This two-day, hands-on course aims to teach you river flood modelling by integrating the 1D river model (MIKE HYDRO River) and 2D overland flow model (MIKE 21). The emphasis is on establishing a 2D overland flow model followed by coupling the 1D and 2D model components to simulate the fully integrated flow dynamics between main rivers and surrounding flood plain areas. River and coastal flooding often occurs as results of river overflow, high rainfall intensity in the catchment area, dam/dike breach, ocean storm surge or as a combination of these phenomena. The risks of flooding are amplified by the expected effects of climate change. MIKE FLOOD is a comprehensive modelling package covering all the major aspects of flood modelling and a tool for understanding river and coastal flooding, analysing scenarios and testing mitigation measures. MIKE FLOOD integrates flood plains, streets, rivers, coastal areas and sewer/storm water systems into one package. COURSE TOPICS 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

FLOOD RISK MANAGEMENT How to prepare for and manage floods

In this this one-day, thematic course we aim to provide you with an overview of integrated solutions available to allow you to address disaster risk management with respect to floods. How can you make a difference in preparing and subsequently manage floods. Disasters are of concern for almost all countries and are growing in terms of people affected and economic losses. A majority of all disasters today are related to hydro-meteorological factors, with floods (inland and coastal) as the main factor causing disasters. A changing climate will increase the risks for many regions. In recent years several floods have resulted in severe damage and health problems due to lack of timely and coordinated communication and lack of preparedness of local government and support services. The missing integration of knowledge and dissemination of information causes greater damage and hence costs. COURSE TOPICS 

What is disaster risk management

Prevention and mitigation of floods

Improving preparedness

Prediction and warning,

Response in form of flood maps and dissemination of information to the public

Presentation of integrated solutions for flood risk management

Examples of local/regional/international cases

Legislative framework (optional and depending on the office)

COURSE DESCRIPTION

SCREENING OF URBAN FLOOD RISK Cost-effective mapping of urban flood risk using MIKE 21 Flood Screening Tool (FST)

In this one-day course you will learn to apply a methodology (using MIKE 21 FST) by which only the surface runoff of the excess part of the rainfall volume is modelled. This enables you to map large geographic areas with limited time and effort. The course includes a step-by-step review of the modelling approach from initial DEM processing to result presentation as well as hands-on exercises. Mapping the effects of extreme rain events can be time consuming and thereby costly if models of storm water systems for entire cities are to be established. In many cases, necessary information on the geometry of pipes and gullies is also unavailable. During an extreme rain event, only a limited portion of the rain volume is gathered by the existing storm water system or has time to infiltrate. Floods caused by extreme rain events are an increasing problem for cities of all sizes world-wide. Densifying of urban developments and climate change are stress factors which increase the pressure to deal with the problems. Pluvial flooding and climate change are new topics on most city planners’ agendas. COURSE TOPICS 

Introduction to pluvial flooding

Overview of pluvial flood modelling tools and techniques - advantages and disadvantages

Data need and their use

Processing and preparation of digital elevation model (DEM)

Case studies

Result presentation

Mapping flood risks, values and economic costs related to flooding

Strategies to manage surface runoff within existing and planned developments

COURSE DESCRIPTION

MODELLING OF STORM WATER FOR GREEN CITIES Methods and structures

This two-day course gives you an introduction to different approaches to the modelling of various types of green infrastructure in MIKE URBAN and their effect on different types of storm events. In addition, you are also introduced to storm water quality and modelling thereof as well as storm water quality treatment options. The course encompasses all types of the green infrastructure practices on the local level thus including bio-retention cells, rain gardens, green roofs, infiltration trenches, permeable pavements, rain barrels and vegetative swales. In recent years we have experienced increased focus on making cities water sustainable. Today many cities strive towards integrating the entire urban water cycle into the urban planning. In this way, environmental degradation is minimised and the aesthetic and recreational appeal of the cities improved. Concurrently, cities also need to adapt to a changing climate. Cities and water utilities need to be able to quantify and document the effects of introducing green infrastructure, for instance in relation to climate change adaptation options, the improvement of water quality in recipients and rainwater harvesting in cities with water shortage.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

REMOTE SENSING Get the full picture using satellite images!

This one-day course provides you with valuable insight into the rapidly evolving remote sensing technology based on dozens of earth observation satellites in orbit at the moment. You will learn how remote sensing information is becoming much more accessible and how it can easily be integrated into MIKE Powered by DHI or GIS software. The lack of reliable data to calibrate and validate models is often a challenge, especially in ungauged catchments or remote parts of the world. This can often be overcome using remote sensing information input. Satellite images provide valuable information across time and space, about flood events, oil spills, algae blooms, deforestation and other environmental issues. Satellites can be used to generate baseline conditions, up-to-date maps of land cover and urban development, and images can provide information about current conditions. COURSE TOPICS 

Introduction to remote sensing and digital image processing

Data types, sensors and satellites, data prices and availability

Data pre-processing (radiometric and geometric calibration)

Remote sensing of water resources

Remote sensing of urban environments

Remote sensing of coastal and marine environments
