Introduction to Hydrological Modelling with the GEOframe system

GEOframe is a system for doing hydrology by computer (https://abouthydrology.blogspot.com/2015/03/jgrass-newage-essentials.html).  It is based on the OMS3/CSIP infrastructure, developed by USDA- ARS/Colorado State University.  OMS3/CSIP allows to build models by components, which perform simple task that can be joined together to build “Modelling Solutions”, suited to particular case studies. Components developed so far cover: meteorological data interpolation (Bancheri et al., 2018), terrain analysis (Abera et al., 2014), calibration tools (Formetta et al., 2011; Formetta et al., 2014), rainfall-runoff models (Bancheri et al., 2020; Formetta et al., 2014), evaporation and transpiration models, snow models (Formetta et al., 2014), Richards’ equations solvers, runoff propagation.

The modelling solution components are executed in parallel by the OMS3/CSIP engine. Besides, a further parallelization is made thanks to the spatial discretisation of the catchments in hydrological response units. GEOframe has been applied to catchments from few thousands of square meters to two hundred thousand square kilometers, and it is also used for operational forecasting in the Basilicata region in Italy. 

The short course introduces the system using some case studies already prepared and show how to join components, set the parameters, run the calibration and obtain results. The course will be based on the material already prepared for various Winter Schools on the topic, which allows the participants to use independently the system.
