Forecasting for all: A workshop on MIKE customisable technologies, with a focus on operational real-time forecasting, warning and control
Date: Wednesday 22nd April 2015
Venue: Macdonald Ansty Hall Hotel, near Coventry, UK
Cost: Free event!

We would like to welcome you to a 1-day workshop on recent developments in forecasting technologies. The session will be led by global leaders in the field, and will be illustrated will real life case studies detailing how forecasting systems have been designed, implemented and are in operational use today; providing forecasts, warning and informing the control of flood defences or operational processes in order to optimise capacity of sewerage infrastructure.

There is now under two weeks to sign up for this free event!

The loose programme for the day is outlined below:
  1. Introduction
  2. Slow Response Runoff Modelling and ‘Real Time’ Simulations – A Swedish Perspective (Andy Wilson, DHI Sweden)
  3. Andy Wilson (from DHI Sweden but a native of Scotland) will give an update to a presentation he delivered at the CIWEM Urban Drainage Group in November 2014 where he talked about modelling of slow response runoff, in particular focusing on long term/continuous simulations (rather than event based hydrology). Andy will illustrate his presentation with applications from both Sweden and Scotland, and will talk about the importance of Rainfall Dependent Infiltration (RDI).
  4. Urban flood forecasting
  5. Use of total catchment hydrology (including groundwater with MIKE SHE)
    This part of the day will introduce the concept truly integrated catchment modelling, using MIKE SHE. The session will discuss the importance of groundwater in flood forecasting projects.
    Rainfall Radar integration (city-wide urban forecasting)
    We will demonstrate how operational real-time forecasting, warning and control can informed by high resolution Local Area Weather Radar (LAWR). LAWR can provide distributed rainfall measurements in a spatial resolution ranging from 500x500 m to 100x100 m, with a 5 minute or 1 minute time, up to a distance of 20 km from the radar (for quantitative estimation). It can also provide an online animation of rainfall within the complete LAWR range.
    MIKE CUSTOMISED Real-time examples
  6. Walkthrough on the building of a modular, on-line riverine flood forecasting system (equally applicable to urban networks and marine applications)
  7. During this session we will show you the processes you would need to follow in order to go from a standalone model (such as a 1D or a 2D hydraulic model), to a live operational flood forecasting system. Using the example of an existing MIKE11, we will consider simplifications that may need to be made to the model in order to make the model suitable for flood forecasting. That revised model will then be taken into the MIKE Customised platform. From there we will look at boundary conditions and in particular how to provide live feeds into the flood forecasting platform. This will then allow us to use the hydraulic model in flood forecasting mode. From here we will show how to stream the flood forecasting results live online.
    Example of on-line river forecasting system
    We will take the opportunity to look at an existing on-line river forecasting system that has been developed and currently operational on a day to day basis.
  8. Scalability of MIKE CUSTOMISED technology
  9. Introduction to information management systems (making data from other models more useful and valuable)
    This session will cover IMS, in particular showing how data from a wide range of technology platforms and vendors can be integrated into our systems.
  10. Innovative flood forecasting technologies
  11. Probabilistic forecasting with stochastic structures in quasi-2D networks
    This session will consider probabilistic flood modelling using large scale, quasi-2D river and flood-cell networks with stochastic structures in MIKE 1D (our new MIKE 11 engine).
    Fast 2D solvers (simplified numerical schemes and high performance computing)
    This session will cover both simplified numerical schemes and high performance computing (using GPU cards and/or Linux clusters) options available to you.
  12. Discussion on Marine forecasting applications (coastal flooding, harbours and shipping, etc)
  13. Throughout the day there will the opportunity to discuss the concepts discussed in your particular context and potential application.

    Lead trainer
    Ole Larsen (DHI) with support from Torben Strange Jensen and Steve Flood
What will you get out of the day?
You should leave the day with a solid understanding of the technology available, and the steps you would need to take in order to move your project forward. You can also meet our experts and start discussion with potential collaborators.

What do you need to do next?
The training course is completely free, so simply sign up for the training day here This training event will be delivered as part of a wider Symposium. However, there is no obligation to attend the earlier events (see for more details).

We look forward to seeing you!

Kind regards
