We are planning tentative dates for our first course in Darwin structured around allowing participants to build, run, and animate two-dimensional flood models from scratch using the free HEC-RAS model.

Those who have registered their interest will be kept informed as the program and venue details are finalised. Following are the tentative proceedings for the 2-day course:
