Training Program on Engineering Hydrology held during 06 – 17 February, 2023

A training program on engineering hydrology, sponsored by Advanced Centre for Integrated Water Resources Management, was held at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Water Research (ICWaR), Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru, between 06 – 17 February, 2023. A total of 25 participants, who are practicing engineers working in the Water Resources Department, Government of Karnataka underwent training in Engineering Hydrology.

The workshop comprised lectures and tutorials by experts, covering topics of the hydrologic cycle, India’s water resources, rainfall-runoff models, introduction to floods and droughts, precipitation, streamflow, use of remote sensing and GIS in streamflow estimation, abstractions from precipitation, hydrographs, flood routing, groundwater, operational groundwater recharge estimation in India based on GEC methodology, intensity-duration-frequency relationships, and streamflow measurement. All the participants visited Kanva Dam where officials described the importance of the dam, the functioning of gate operations, and other salient features of the dam.
