Hydrological modeling and recharge estimation with MIKE SHE

LDia 19/05 (Tuesday) at noon (Brasília time) Water Services and Technologies specialist Nilson Guiguer, in partnership with HydroInfo and DHI, will present a free webinar “Hydrological modeling and recharge estimation – MIKE SHE” with approximately 1: 00h in duration.

In studies of groundwater, the estimate of the recharge that actually reaches the water table is made in an empirical manner, based on a fixed percentage of precipitation, often taking into account the geological material, land use, or slope. An alternative is the use of hydrological models that integrate more systematically.

This methodology is even more important in arid and semi-arid regions, where isolated precipitation events have a strong influence on effective recharge, which can vary strongly from year to year.

In this webinar, the MIKE-SHE tool will be demonstrated in a real case study.
