And The Winners Are…

Each year, the State of Washington Water Research Center awards “Seed Grants” for research that explores new ideas to advance scientific understanding of water resources or their management in Washington state. The Center is housed at WSU but collaborates with water researchers, colleges and Universities throughout the state, nation, and world to pursue its mission. The Center administers the Seed Grant program under Section 104(b) of the Water Resources Research Act.

Three awards were announced in December 2020 for the coming year. Jonathan Yoder, Center Director and Professor in the WSU School of Economic Sciences was pleased with the quality of the grant proposals saying, “As in most years, we had a strong slate of proposals. These three proposals were very well developed and represent important issues in watershed management and the valuable ecosystem services that river systems provide. This is especially important in the context of climate change, where stream temperature,  wildfires, and associated erosion are a growing concern. We look forward to seeing the results of these exciting projects.”

The winning proposals will receive about $30,000 each. The 2021 winning projects are:

June 8-10, 2021

The conference planning committee is pleased to invite abstract submissions for the 2021 UCOWR/NIWR (Virtual) Water Resources Conference. Gaps in projected water supply and demand, declining water quality, increased food and energy needs, and a changing climate highlight the numerous water challenges facing society and water resources professionals. UCOWR and NIWR invite you to join leading researchers, educators, water managers, students, and other professionals from across the country and world to join the dialogue as we seek to develop solutions to complex water resources challenges and explore bridges between science and policy. We call your attention to a special focus on Water and Social-Environmental Justice and especially encourage abstracts on this timely and critical topic.

Update: Submission date changed to Feb 21.2021
