Short Course: Integrated Simulation of Watershed Systems Using ParFlow

Dates: May 29 – 31, 2019
Location: Colorado School of Mines in Golden, CO
Deadlines
Early Bird Registration Deadline: March 15
Regular Registration Deadline: March 31

Overview
This class trains students in aspects of integrated hydrologic modeling using ParFlow. The course is problem based, focusing all modules and exercises on simulation of a single well-studied, research watershed. Students will gain familiarity in the processes simulated with this platform, gain understanding the disparate input and output datasets and gain understanding and familiarity of Linux commands, high performance computing, visualization and hydrologic analysis. The course is designed modularly and builds in complexity with a host of in-class exercises where the students explore this system under the guidance of the instructors.

Master Class: Food, Energy, Water Systems in a Global Economy

Dates: May 13 – 16, 2019
Location: Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ
Deadlines
Early Bird Registration Deadline: March 15
Regular Registration Deadline: March 31

Overview
This CUAHSI Master Class is intended for graduate students in Hydrology and Water Resources science and engineering programs requiring focused training on modern research methods in water footprinting and environmental impact accounting in a regional and global network-economy context. An overview of major modern methods is provided to help the student identify the most appropriate tools for their current research problems. In the past three years the conversation about global water sustainability has merged and evolved into the “Food Energy and Water Systems” theme area, of which water sustainability is a leading component.  This class is an evolution of the previously offered class “Water Sustainability in a Global Economy.”

Water Resources Science and Management Certificate – Spring Meeting 2019

Wed., Mar 6, 2019 |6-7 pm | CUE 416

The WRC will be hosting its Spring 2019 meeting about the WRSM undergraduate certificate. Students from all majors should attend!

At this meeting:

  • Learn about what the certificate offers, what you need to do to complete it, and have any of your questions about the process answered.
  • Meet other students who are completing this certificate and get some snacks.
  • Hear from the Engineers Without Borders club, who will share what they’ve been doing to provide clean, sustainable water to communities in Panama.

The WSU chapter is currently working with a community in rural Panama to ensure a year-round water supply with a) construction of a solar powered pump for river water and b) exploration of groundwater supply options. EWB needs people working on both the social and technical side of their projects, so all majors are encouraged to join!
