Training course: “Water-related natural hazards: measurement and modeling”

*|Training course|*

The training course will be hosted in Moscow State University during 2ndIYFSWC and ICCE symposium and will include 4 days of lectures, seminars, as well as a rich workshop program. Experts with different background, including but not limited to, fluvial geomorphology, soil science, climate change, hydrology and sedimentology, give unique practical lectures and seminars.

Participants will get a certificate of attendance (1 ECTS point). Additional fee (90 euro) is required for registered participants of the 2nd IYFSWC and ICCE symposium which includes training course proceedings and documentation, attending to all training course activities, certificate. Please, proceed to payment page. Registration for training course can be done during your abstract submission or by filling the additional form here.

Five seminars and workshops presented by top-level researchers:
What are appropriate measuring techniques for monitoring  of different gully types? What is the impact of gully erosion on infiltration and drainage? Such questions will be answered on seminar holding by Dr. Jean Poesen.
Macro-scale hydrological modeling is crucial in water resources research and planning, regional climate change studies and long-term forecasting. Dr. Vsevolod M. Moreido will discuss these issues in the application of the ECOMAG model
Environmental, social and economic aspects of preventing the degradation of torrential floods and erosion processes will be discussed by Dr. Miodrag Zlatić
Measuring soil loss across the whole landscape is impractical, this workshop, holding by Dr. Peter Strauss is about methods of estimating soil erosion with computational modeling, upon which integrated assessment for different scales.
A complex overview of existing techniques of indirect methods of measuring bedload transport in mountain streams will be shown by Dr. Helmut Habersack
Master-class "Digital modeling of erosion soil cover patterns" by Zhidkin A.P., Lozbenev N.I., Kozlov D.N.: This course is aimed at analyzing approaches to studying the soil cover patterns on the plowed land in connection with the erosion-accumulation processes. We will show the method of applying of the erosion model (WaTEM/SEDEM) in common with the field data of soil properties for digital modeling of erosion soil cover patterns and also discuss the advantages and disadvantages of digital modeling and traditional mapping of combinations of eroded soils.

"Soils of the World": practical course on the unique collections of soil profiles which are deposited in the Earth Sciences museum of Moscow State University. Collection includes over 30 different soil profiles. The workshop includes detailed insights and explanations on soil formation processes in various environmental zones.

Field study on soil erosion phenomena in the Central part of East European plain: the field study will be help on the areas of former cultivated lands of steep slopes of Klinsko-Dmitrovskaya moraine ridge where since the 1991 considerable reduction of agricultural activities have been observed due to economical reason. This lead to the serious reduction of the total soil losses and to increasing forested area. Results of long-term monitoring of soil erosion, quantitative assessment of the soil erosion rates and consequences of the cultivated land reduction will be discussed during field excursion.
