Venue: German-Kazakh University (DKU), Nazarbayev str. 173, 050010 Almaty, Republic of Kazakhstan
The Summer School will introduce into innovative methods and tools for the analysis and monitoring of water and land resources in Central Asia. These methods are of great value in a framework of integrated water and land resources management.
The 2-week Summer School will combine theoretical lectures and practical exercises with discussion sessions on the implementation of new methods and tools in managing water and land resources in Central Asia. The programme will include an in-depth introduction into geographical information systems (GIS), an overview on remote sensing applications for land and water resources monitoring, an introduction into climatological data analysis and an introduction to glaciology. For the practical exercises in data analysis, the participants will use open source tools such as QGIS (www.qgis.org) for spatial analysis, and R (www.r-project.org) for statistical analysis.
The Summer School is organized within the frame of the CAWa project as contribution to the German Water Initiative for Central Asia (“Berlin Process”) launched by the German Federal Foreign Office in 2008
Programme details will be published at the CAWa Project website.
The courses will be given in English, hence the knowledge of English language is a prerequisite to participation.
