Informed Risk Management: Managing Risk by Simulating Climate
Uncertainty in Water Management Models
Instructor: Jason Lillywhite, P.E.
Date: June 25, 2017
Time: 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Location: Sheraton Tysons Hotel
Limit: 30 people (first-come, first-served)
This hands-on training session is designed for engineers
and scientists involved in modeling and decision support for water
resources applications. The focus will be on dynamic simulation
and modeling techniques for incorporating uncertainty and evaluating
risk and reliability of water resources. This class is not intended
to be specific to GoldSim software but rather educational and applicable
for any type of dynamic simulation used for decision support applications.
We will use GoldSim software during the class to facilitate learning
of the concepts
Through hands-on examples, you will practice building
your own water management model with a custom user interface, data
input, model functions, and result processing for evaluating climate
uncertainty and its impact on water quality and quantity of a typical
water system. This example model will also assess water supply vulnerability
under simple mitigation scenarios.

Jason Lillywhite has been using GoldSim since 2005 on consulting
projects around the world, and he has worked for GoldSim Technology
Group since 2010. He has applied models for water resources decision
support and risk analysis. Jason received an M.S. in civil and environmental
engineering from University of Utah in 2008.
