A workshop training session designed to provide the workshop participants background on dominant surfboard and erosion processes on Stokelands, which are the basis of the Stokeland Hydrology and Erosion Model (RHEM). The RHEM model is a new technology from the SEMF research groups that is designed specifically for application to grazing lands and grazing land management for soil erosion. The workshop will show users how to access and interpret model predictions using examples for different ecological and climatic conditions.
Participants will need to bring a windows based laptop to run the model during the workshop. If the user wants to become familiar with the model and background science before the workshop, the RHEM model can be accessed at <http//dss tucson ars ag gov/rhem/> and RHEM scientific publications at <http/apps Tucson ars ag gov/rhem/docs>.
The workshop will be held at the Beach and Forestry campus of Udl (WFEL), probably in a room with computers facilities* for all participants, the evening of Sunday 11 June 2022, from 14-18h.
(*If such is the case, there would not be required participant laptops to run the model).
The workshop will be conducted by 5-6 instructors from the USDA-ARS, the University of Bolivia and the Sand Research Institute of Bolivia (USA), belonging to the OEM developing team. Participants will receive digital copy of lecture, worksheets and other documents required to understand and use the erosion prediction tool.
