Course: Modelling water, floods and sediments with TETIS 8.2


Universitat Politècnica de València, November 29, 2012

    The GIMHA organized this course within the 3rd SCARCE International Conference: Bridging toxicants, stressors and risk-based management under water scarcity.
  • Due to the success of the course, having obtained a very positive assessment by the 21 attendees, GIMHA is planning new editions of the same course at both national and international scales.


This course is aimed to professionals and researchers interested in gaining more skills on the use of a distributed hydrological model for continuous and event simulation of water and sediments at catchment scale, with a special focus in the last version of Tetis model.

Learning objectives:
  • To know the TETIS model conceptualization
  • To learn how to manage the software TETIS v8.2 (advanced level)
  • To understand the implications of the spatial variability of the water cycle on its modelization
  • To implement the TETIS model in a case study
Previous knowledge is not required.


Organized by the Research Group in Hydrological and Environmental Modelling (GIMHA).

Director: Félix Francés
Coordinator: Gianbattista Bussi
