AE 653 MODELLING IN INTEGRATED WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT                                                                 (2L+1P) III

Objective
To acquaint and equip the students with the integrated resources management, modeling and modeling systems

UNIT I
Introduction to modeling, model types, models in soil and water resources; model selection techniques; database requirement, availability, generation and use for model development. Development of conceptual and physics based models.

UNIT II
Use of numerical methods in model development and use of Geographic Information System (GIS) tool. Advantage of model hybridization over individual model types, model calibration, validation and testing for accuracy, consistency and sensitivity.

UNIT III
Use of expert system techniques, heuristics in soil and water resources; development of expert watershed systems; use of artificial Neural Networks in modeling.

Practicals
