IST-KIU Training Workshop:

Institute of Space Technology (IST) Islamabad and Karakorum International University (KIU) Gilgit are jointly organizing a training workshop on Climate and Hydrological Modelling for Climate Change Impact Assessment on Water Resourcesto be held at KIU Gilgit from 22-31 July 2019. For Workshop Poster click here

Description:

Extreme weather and climate event affect communities through their impact on agriculture, energy and water resources. Pakistan’s climate is characterized by complex topographical features of Hindukush-Karakorum and Himalaya (HKH) mountain ranges. The impact of climate change on water resources under various flow regimes can intensify the droughts and floods. The applications of Regional Climate Model (RCM) for climate change impact assessment in the Upper Indus Basin (UIB) are very rare. In this context, the workshop proposes theoretical and practical computing sessions on climate and hydrological modeling for water resource managements of UIB. The summer school will also provide hands-on sessions on data analysis techniques for datasets related to hydro-climatic modeling. Participants are required to have a basic knowledge in Meteorology/Atmospheric environment/Earth system science/ and background in math and basic laws of Physics.

Topics:

  • Basis of regional climate and hydrological modeling 
  • Extensive hands-on sessions on data analysis techniques for hydro-climatic      modeling
  • Review and discussion of on-going projects involving climate and hydrological           modeling over Upper Indus Basin  
  • Examples of climate modeling studies over South Asia with much focus on Pakistan. 
  • Identification of regional working groups, projects and networks
