GoldSim Webinars

We offer free, monthly webinars to present GoldSim features and applications. Upcoming webinars are listed below. If you would like to be placed on our Webinar Mailing List to be reminded every month of the upcoming webinar, contact us.

All webinars are recorded (and posted to the site within a day or two), and these provide an excellent resource for learning about GoldSim features and applications.

Materials and video recordings of past webinars are available on our Webinar Archive Page.

    Next Webinar: Updated AWBM Model

    The Australian Water Balance Model (AWBM) was developed in the early 1990s by Walter Boughton and is now one of the most widely used rainfall-runoff models in Australia. Many GoldSim models incorporate AWBM for estimating runoff around mine sites and for other projects that simulate rainfall runoff in a watershed. This version of AWBM is intended to be used as a module within other GoldSim models but also works as a standalone model. The inputs to the model are precipitation and potential evapotranspiration time series, along with model parameters that describe the catchment. The output is a runoff rate on a per unit area basis, which can be multiplied by the total catchment area for volumetric runoff.

    This webinar will introduce you to the model and provide a summary of the updates we have made over the last couple of years.

    In this webinar, I will introduce the model and demonstrate it using a simple application and also describe the important updates made in the last couple years.
