Application Deadline: January 15th
CUAHSI is soliciting applications from students who wish to participate in the 2019 National Water Center (NWC) Summer Institute under the auspices of the NWC’s Innovator’s Program. The Summer Institute will take place at the University of Alabama and the National Water Center from June 10 – July 26, 2019. Student research fellows will collaborate intensively for seven weeks to work on projects designed to contribute to the NWC goals of enhancing water-related products and decision-support services across the country. To facilitate this process, project themes have been defined in advance. The Summer Institute will be led by faculty theme leads and daily oversight will be provided by student course coordinators.
Students participating in the Summer Institute will be grouped into teams organized around projects defined by the theme leaders and pre-selected topics. While there may be some overlap with the students’ individual MS/PhD research projects, the expectation is that the work and research done during the Summer Institute will be a separate, self-contained project.
The 2019 Summer Institute will explore projects around the following themes:
- Coupled inland-coastal hydraulics
- Scaling hydrologic and hydraulic models from small basins to regional watersheds
- Utilizing hydroinformatics to address flood inundation
- Support remote sensing of water information through engagement with the computer science community
