Advanced WRAP Workshop

This course is full. Please view our August 30-31, 2012, offering of this course.

Aug. 23-24, 2012
The workshop will be from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. 

Workshop Location: Horticulture/Forest Science Building, Lab 125, College Station, 77843

About the Workshop: This workshop will cover advanced aspects of the Water Rights Analysis Package (WRAP)related specifically to simulations using daily time steps. The course will focus on the daily time step simulations with WRAP and will include computer modeling exercises.

WRAP is a generalized modeling system for simulating the development, management, allocation, and use of the water resources of a river basin. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s Water Availability Modeling (WAM) System consists of WRAP along with input datasets for all of the river basins of Texas.

The course will cover WRAP topics of an intermediate to advanced level. The course is designed for engineers and scientists employed by water agencies and consulting firms. Proficiency with the existing monthly time step features of the WRAP modeling system is recommended for all participants, he said.

Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the modeling system features that are pertinent to building daily time step input data, selecting simulation parameters, and analyzing simulation output.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be provided upon course completion.

About the Instructor: Dr. Richard Hoffpauir is a research engineering consultant for the Texas Engineering Experiment Station. He has several years of consulting experience in applying WRAP both in Texas and abroad.
