|˝Jaroslav Černi˝ Institute at Convention of Torrent Control Experts in Austria and Italy|
Thirty-first traditional ˝Convention of Torrent Control Experts˝, offering the experts in the field an opportunity to learn about current trends and solutions, as well as to share experiences, took place from September 9th to 14th in Austria and Italy, under the auspices of the Austrian Federal Service for Torrents and Avalanche control.
The field trip has been organised by the Serbian Association of Torrent Control Experts, the ˝Jaroslav Černi˝ Institute for Development of Water Resources and the Belgrade Faculty of Forestry. The experts from these institutions have been joined by their colleagues from PUC ˝Srbijavode˝, PUC ˝Beogradvode˝, PUC ˝Srbija šume˝, PUC ˝Zapadna Morava˝, Kraljevo, PUC ˝Erozija˝, Niš, PUC ˝Mičelini˝, Valjevo, and the Užice Land Development Public Agency.
The goal of this field trip was to allow the experts from the Institute, as well as participants from other public companies and institutions to experience and learn about new torrent control solutions used in other countries.
In Austria, the convention attendees have visited the Institute for Torrent and Avalanche Control, as well as the ˝Boku˝ University for Natural Resources, where they were given a lab tour and introduced to new methods in education of torrent control experts.
In the course of the visit to the area affected by torrential floods near the South Tyrolean town of Bolzano, Italy, the participants were introduced to a new system for torrential flood monitoring, as well as to an alarm system for timely protection of the roads in the valley and a complex of apple orchards.
During this physically demanding yet interesting tour, our experts witnessed and were introduced to foreign methods and experiences in problem solving, design and implementation of new systems in the field of torrents, and they were able to compare those experiences with our own practice. The conclusion is that in the field of torrential flood monitoring and alerting systems, we are not inferior to the host countries despite the significantly smaller budget at the disposal.
