CE-QUAL-W2 Modeling Workshop
Civil and Environmental Engineering Continuing Education Course
Monday, June 17, 2013 through Friday, June 21, 2013
8:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Thursday
8:00 am to 12:00 pm Friday

UPDATE: as of May 16, 2013, only ONE SPOT REMAINING in the course.
We will run a wait list after the class fills up.
Dr. Scott Wells and his research group conduct a yearly workshop on the CE-QUAL-W2 model. Information about this model is found at http://www.cee.pdx.edu/w2. This popular workshop draws many water quality working professionals from the Northwest and throughout the US. Participants have also included individuals from South Africa, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Switzerland, Germany, Brazil, Mexico, and Canada.
CE-QUAL-W2 is a longitudinal/vertical, unsteady hydrodynamic and water quality model. This model has been successfully applied in numerous applications, ranging from steeply sloping rivers to deep reservoirs and narrow estuaries. This workshop, presented by Portland State University, provides a thorough review of the background of the model’s water quality, hydrodynamic, and numerical algorithms; computer laboratory sessions for setting up and running the model; and a day where case studies of CE-QUAL-W2 applications will be presented. This workshop is designed for biologists, hydrologists; geologists; engineers; chemists; city, state, and federal regulators; site planners and project managers; compliance/regulatory program managers for industry; and technical experts. Some technical background and experience in surface water quality problems is presumed. Lectures have been prepared covering the following topics:
Water quality modeling
CE-QUAL-W2 governing equations
CE-QUAL-W2 model structure
CE-QUAL-W2 solution algorithms
Data requirements for calibration
The workshop will be held Monday, June 17-Friday, June 21, 2013, in the Northwest Center for Engineering, Science and Technology at Portland State University, home of the Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science (1930 SW Fourth Avenue, Portland, Oregon, 97201). The workshop will commence each day at 8 am and finish at 4 pm (except on Friday when we will conclude at noon). All participants will receive a certificate of completion and 30 PDH credits.
