COURSE DESCRIPTION

MODELLING OF UNDERWATER ACOUSTICS Risk assessment of environmental noise impacts

This 1-day course teaches you the fundamentals of underwater acoustics modelling with the aim of being able to carry out biological risk assessments of environmental noise impacts for e.g. wind farms, seismic surveys, shipping, dredging and other human activities. Marine mammals and other marine life face threats from many different human activities, including fishing, habitat destruction and man-made noise. Increased background noise and specific sound sources can impact marine animals in several ways. The potential impacts include sounds that cause marine animals to alter their behaviour, prevent marine animals from hearing important sounds (masking), cause hearing loss (temporary or permanent), or damage tissue. The Underwater Acoustics Simulator (UAS) module in MIKE simulates propagation of noise in the far-field with a state of the art Range dependent Acoustic Model (RAM). UAS provides the option to specify a number of outputs in terms of sound exposure level or transmission loss depending on the objective of the environmental risk assessment. COURSE TOPICS 

Introduction to underwater acoustics

Biology and marine impact assessment

Effects of noise on aquatic life (e.g. fish and marine mammals)

Setting up a UAS model with site specific properties

COURSE DESCRIPTION

COASTAL DEVELOPMENT Processes, regulations and management

In this two-day, thematic course you are given an overview of the physical processes of dredging and reclamation and their impacts on marine environments. The focus is on the environmental impacts of dredging and reclamation projects and the available tools and procedures that can help to sustainably manage these projects both during the design and implementation of the works. The course includes stakeholder analysis and stakeholder involvement in the management of dredging and reclamation projects. Coastal environments have diverse environmental receptors sensitive to potential impacts arising from dredging and reclamation. These include habitats such as coral reefs, natural resources such as fisheries, economic resources such as water intakes and socio-cultural resources such as tourism facilities. Coupled with the fact that the physical processes of currents and waves can transfer the potential impacts of dredging and reclamation many kilometers from the work area, it becomes clear that the management of environmental impacts of dredging and reclamation is a challenging activity. The course provides you with the necessary knowledge of the physical, chemical and biological impact processes resulting from dredging and reclamation works and how these can be minimized through project planning and environmental management during execution.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

INTEGRATED URBAN WATER SYSTEMS (IUWS) Integrated modelling of water quality in urban areas

This two-day thematic course provides the theoretical basis for the modelling of integrated urban water systems. It includes some interesting case studies of practical applications and hands-on exercises based on the WEST software package. Both policy makers and the industry are increasingly realising the necessity of adopting an integrated approach to water management. Urban water management presents big challenges, but also great opportunities to minimise both the impact on the receiving water (and on the environment in general, e g energy and materials consumption, pollutants emission) and any costs. Options like water quality based real time control, sewer operation minimising odour and corrosion problems, global sewer control, construction of retention volumes and treatment facilities, water reuse, nutrient recovery, can be better designed and evaluated by using models, which include the interaction between all units involved. Optimising individual subsystems may not be the best solution for the entire system. The integrated assessment of the system provides the opportunity to develop holistic solutions and/or provide the justification for prioritising implementation plans in a manner that will provide the best value and greatest benefits for the receiving water. COURSE TOPICS 

Hydraulic models simplification

Water quality model interfaces

What to request and expect from a model
