RiverWare in CWMS/RTS

These training videos present the methodology and modeling techniques to incorporate a RiverWare model into the Corps Water Management System (CWMS) and/or Real Time Simulation (RTS). The videos are intended for engineers, water managers, and system operators who have experience with RiverWare and CWMS/RTS. Please note, all content applies to CWMS and RTS, but the tutorials only work in CWMS v3.2.2.

Tutorials for each chapter can be found in the Resources tab within the chapter's player. The entire PDF can be downloaded from https://riverware.org/tutorials/CWMS_RTS/RiverWare_CWMS.2021.09.pdf.

The files referenced in the tutorials can be downloaded from https://riverware.org/tutorials/CWMS_RTS/Instructions.html. Installation steps are also provided.
