IIT Mandi has successfully organised a 3 day workshop on Groundwater Flow and Contaminant Transport Modeling, using HYDRUS. There were several scholars and working professionals from IIT Madras, IIT Kanpur, IIT Bhubaneswar, CSIR-NEERI Pune and ICAR-IARI PUSA. The workshop is recognized and published by PC Progress on the global platform. HYDRUS is a very popular software package among the agriculture and groundwater researchers globally to estimate the soil water balance, contaminant transport modeling in subsurface environment and rootwater uptake.
