2018 GERHARD JIRKA SUMMER SCHOOL ENVIRONMENTAL FLUID MECHANICS
De 8 a 12 de janeiro de 2018 a Universidade Federal de Mato Grosso do Sul sediará a Escola de Mecânica dos Fluidos Ambientais Gerhard Jirka. Esta será a primeira vez que o curso de verão ocorrerá no Brasil e a realização será em parceria com a Universidade Federal do Paraná (UFPR) e a Universidade de São Paulo (USP). O evento contará ainda com o apoio da International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR) e da CAPES.

We cordially invite you to participate in the ?2018 Gerhard Jirka Summer School Environmental Fluid Mechanics? ? a 5-day training course. The summer school will be held at the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul (UFMS), Campo Grande, Brazil. The courses will comprise of both lectures and hands-on practical sessions. The Summer School will start on Monday January 8th and end on Friday January 12th of 2018.
The School is a signature IAHR event that was founded and energized by the late Professor Gerhard Jirka, with a vision to bring together renowned experts and top graduate students from around the world for a unique, interactive learning experience in environmental fluid mechanics. The summer school features nine researchers of name and fame , each of whom will give lectures on topical environmental fluid mechanics subjects. The goal is to convey a broad spectrum of environmental fluid mechanics subjects, including vegetated flow dynamics and wetlands, Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), modelling of extreme flow events in hydraulic systems, leakage and intrusion flows through leak openings in pipes, mass transfer through air-water interface, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), buoyant jets and plumes and stratified flows, and sediment transport.
The course is intended for upper level or postgraduate students (M.Sc. or Ph.D. candidates), engineers and scientists in industry, government or research institutions involved in environmental engineering, planning or impact prediction.
