Workshops

Introductory SWAT (ArcSWAT)

This is a beginner course designed to introduce new users to the SWAT model, review necessary and optional inputs, and familiarize the user with the ArcGIS interfaces. It is assumed that attendees have a working knowledge of ArcGIS. The two-day course will not review basic concepts on ArcGIS usage prior to covering the SWAT/ArcGIS interface.

Introductory SWAT (QSWAT)

This is a beginner course designed to introduce new users to the SWAT model, review necessary and optional inputs, and familiarize the user with the QGIS interfaces. It is assumed that attendees have a working knowledge of QGIS. The two-day course will not review basic concepts on QGIS usage prior to covering the SWAT/QGIS interface.

Advanced SWAT (SWAT-CUP)

This course will cover sensitivity analysis, model calibration with SWAT-CUP, and uncertainty analysis using the 2012 version of SWAT with the ArcGIS interface. SWAT-CUP is a computer program for calibration of SWAT models. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop with projects for debugging.

APEX (Agricultural Policy/Environmental eXtender)

This course was developed for use in whole farm/small watershed management. The model was constructed to evaluate various land management strategies considering sustainability, erosion, economics, water supply and quality, soil quality, plant competition, weather and pests. More about APEX.

Workshop Participant Information

Computers and software will be provided, but for advanced participants we encourage you to bring your own laptops with projects for discussion.
