The development and application of water models has been a speciality of Deltares – a Dutch applied research and consulting group with experience across the world.
At this presentation hear of applications on:
- Catchment flow and nutrient load modelling framework for New Zealand, using wflow (hydrology), MODFLOW (groundwater) and Delft-FEWS (platform)
- Global Storm surge and Tide Model (GTSM) and a regional inundation model for Mackay, using Delft3D-FM (hydrodynamics and waves) and Delft-FEWS (platform)
- Support of the Strategic Basin Planning for Ganges River Basin in India, using wflow (hydrology), Sobek (hydrodynamic), RIBASIM (IWRM) and Delft-FEWS (platform)
Guests from Deltares for the night are:
Nadine Slootjes – head of the department for operational water management and early warning. Their activities are supported by the software products Delft-FEWS and RTC-Tools an open shell for operational water management and a toolbox for real time control of hydraulic structures, resolving conflicting constraints and optimization goals. Nadine is also a member of the operational team for the Dutch Maeslant Storm Surge Barrier, which protects the Port of Rotterdam and around a million people living in the hinterland.
Gerben Boot – who has been involved with Delft-FEWS since 2005, from code development, support & maintenance, training, to managing both implementation and development projects. Since 2008 he is the Product Manager for Developments. Besides his strong involvement with Delft-FEWS, Gerben is project lead for other software development projects and over the years has delivered many software releases through projects within international consortia for international clients. Since late 2018, he has been involved in the renewal of the groundwater modelling software suite (iMOD-X) around the MODFLOW 6 kernel.
The venue is being confirmed, but will be in the Brisbane CBD.
