You will receive practical advice on planning, managing and carrying out surveys for 1D and 2D river models. The one day course aims to inform surveyors of how river models work and to inform modellers and managers how a survey is planned and executed. The course does not cover survey principles.
This course is aimed at land surveyors, hydraulic modellers and project managers involved in both topographical surveys and model building/ management.
By the end of the course you will:
- Know how to specify and undertake an optimum survey for a river model
- Appreciate possible pitfalls
