EEMS Training

Modeling Resources

DSI has developed online EEMS training from ground up. This training is divided into different courses. These courses are numbered 100, 200, 300 and are divided based on the familiarity of a user with EEMS.
 

EEMS100 introduces the basics of EFDC_Explorer software and makes a user familiar with all of its major parts.

EEMS200 introduces users to different simulation modules of EFDC+ and familiarizes the user to different parameters for each module.

EEMS300 will include comprehensive examples for EFDC+ modeling using EEMS. (Available from November, 2020)

EEMS400 will include examples of linking EFDC+ model to external models. (Available from December, 2020)

EEMS500 will include introduction to EFDC+ Fortran code and discuss the ways to contribute to the code. (Available from 2021)

Experienced users might directly start with the course that deals with the EFDC+ module that they are interested in and develop their own learning plan. We hope you will like this approach for the EEMS training. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments on our Forum or YouTube Channel.

EEMS Trainings include various modules, each of which consists of a lecture on a modeling topic, followed by a hands-on session where attendees can learn how to use the skills taught during the lecture. Instructors will be available to assist the training participants during the hands-on session.

After completing an EEMS Training, participants should have a basic understanding of how to model:

  • Lake Hydrodynamics
  • Temperature and Dye
  • Water Quality
  • Estuary Hydrodynamics
  • Wind Wave Motion
  • Flow and Vegetation Interactions
  • Sediment Transport
  • Lagrangian Particle Tracking/Oil Spill Dynamics

Thank you to all who attended the recent webinar on ‘Increasing the Performance of EFDC+ Models using Domain Decomposition’. The domain decomposition using Message Passing Interface (MPI) is a new feature of EEMS 10.2. The webinar demonstrated how to use this new capability for your modeling needs. It was held on June 26, 2020.
