An advanced FREEWAT training course

 

An advanced training course "Numerical modeling for water resource management" was held at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (Pisa, Italy) on May 29th-30th, 2018.

The course, free of charge, was organized as part of the EU LIFE REWAT project (www.liferewat.eu), with the aim of strengthening the skills of participants on numerical modeling techniques and on the implementation of groundwater transport and flow models, through theoretical lessons and practical exercises using the FREEWAT platform.

The course was attended by 21 participants, among which freelances, technicians from public administrations and academics.

The course program envisaged the conceptualization and implementation of a groundwater flow and transport model in an area of the Cornia valley (Tuscany, central Italy) for the design of groundwater decontamination systems. Through the exercise, the participants had the opportunity to deal with topics related to the advective-dispersive transport in porous media, using the MODFLOW and MT3DMS codes integrated in FREEWAT.
