During the Delft-FEWS - Water Quality Configuration Course more advanced features of Delft-FEWS configuration will be explained based on several hands-on exercises and short lectures by Delft-FEWS experts of Deltares. The course will also demonstrate how to incorporate water quality data (chemical-, nutrient-, and hydro-biological data) in the Delft-FEWS database. It will give a glimpse on how to process and disseminate your data as well as how to connect to external (water quality) models/scripts.
Delft-FEWS is a software package developed by Deltares to provide an easy and modular way of setting up operational forecasting systems. Due to the modular approach Delft-FEWS allows you to plug in a wide range of data sources, models and data types. This can all be configured in the Delft-FEWS configuration files.
Delft-FEWS was originally intended for hydrologists and used for Flood Early Warning. Currently Delft-FEWS is used in over 40 countries over the whole world and has expanded its areas of applicability towards droughts, hydropower, coastal systems, water quality, data conversion, shipping, dredging and long term scenario studies.
After taking this course the participants have a good understanding of the structure of the Delft-FEWS configuration. They are able to implement their own water quality data feeds into Delft-FEWS and get to know additional functionality on how to expand this system in the future.
