Water Scarcity - Winter School 2010 on Analysing, mapping and evaluating spatio-temporal water scarcity problems
Water Scarcity - Winter School 2010 on
"Analysing, mapping and evaluating spatio-temporal water scarcity problems"
February 1 - 11, 2010 in Salzburg, Austria
The International Winter School Water Scarcity is dedicated to the theme of "Analysing, mapping and evaluating spatio-temporal water scarcity problems" and is hosted by Salzburg University's Centre for Geoinformatics.
In a set of lectures, group work and practicals the course focuses on the climatological, hydrological and socio-economic processes and functions inherent in landscapes across Europe related to water scarcity. Participants will gain an overview of planning procedures (data acquisition, data preparation, data processing, and result interpretation) and acquire skills to apply the respective theory. They will learn how to implement an early warning system against water shortage based on existing operational methodologies (e.g. Meteorisk) and to characterize main anthropogenic and naturally defined surface water and groundwater systems. Participants will be guided from "simple" discipline oriented approaches to more sophisticated multidisciplinary, holistic methods aiming at an integrated assessment of water management and planning.
Registration starts on October 1, 2009. Applications are accepted until December 31, 2009. Due to limited places we strongly recommend an early registration!
