Numerical Modelling in Hydrology and Hydraulics, Jakarta

About this event

Numerical modelling is a technique to tackle complex hydrological and hydraulic problems by computational simulation.

The presenter will explain from his practical experience, how river basin numerical models are developed through the following key processes of the hydrologic cycle:

Firstly meteorological processes, which are evaluated through historical trends of atmospheric conditions and future climate change estimates by using land-based and satellite-based technologies.

Secondly rainfall-runoff processes, which are evaluated using statistical and physical models in the context of hydrologic modelling to better represent the hydrologic cycle.

Finally runoff to riverine hydraulics processes, which are evaluated using models through the characterization of land use, land cover, soil, geospatial sciences and some of the critical social, environmental, demographic and economic conditions in the context of hydraulic modelling.

Ismail Kaan Tuncok

Ismail graduated from the Civil Engineering Department of Middle East Technical University (METU) in 1990. He received his MSc degree from METU (1992) with specialisation in Hydraulics. He received his PhD degree from Arizona State University (1995) with specialization in Water Resources Planning and Management (Optimization of Reservoir Operations at River Basin Scale).

He is currently serving as the Team Leader of a strategic project “Enhanced Water Security Investment” for the Asian Development Bank in coordination with the Directorate General of Water Resources, Ministry of Public Works & Housing, Republic of Indonesia to develop infrastructure investment portfolio in Flood Risk Management and Raw Water Supply projects in 4 river basins.
