Soil & Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) Workshops
The Soil & Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) is a small catchment to river basin-scale model used to simulate the quality and quantity of surface and groundwater and predict the environmental impact of land use, land management practices, and climate change. SWAT is widely used around the world and its use is increasing in New Zealand. SWAT+, a completely revised version of the SWAT model which provides a more flexible spatial representation of interactions and processes within a catchment, is now available. The model may be of interest to a wide range of users, councils, consultants, and scientists. To introduce this model, the SWAT team will provide the following workshops across the country:
SWAT+ workshop - Christchurch:
28-29 November 9am to 4pm at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand.
The workshop is hosted by UC, NIWA, and the NZ Hydrological Society.
SWAT+ introduction workshop - Rotorua - Pre NZHS Conference:
02 December 10am to 3pm in Roturua.
The workshop is hosted by UC, NIWA, NZ Hydrological Society and Scion (held at Scion Rotorua).
There is no fee for attending the workshops. You will be required to bring your laptop and have QSWAT+ preinstalled (link provided). Registration is essential as spaces are limited.
