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!

8:30 am – 12:30 pm
ATLAS Workbase, 500 Mercer ST, Seattle WA.

Join us for a lively half-day workshop, with plenty of research-grounded insight and
hands-on practice in science communication! We’ll begin with an introduction to
the Message Box, a powerful tool for sorting your thoughts into messages that are
clear and compelling, then practice sharing those messages and giving and receiving
feedback with the other participants. Participants will receive a copy of Escape from
the Ivory Tower by Nancy Baron, and a hard copy of the Message Box Workbook.
Register on our website before March 3rd for Early Bird Pricing! $250
Full Price: $325

Learn more about COMPASS at compassscicomm.org. There will be a limited number
of full scholarships available, applicaCons due Feb. 24; more informaCon on how to

2019 National Water Center Innovators Program Summer Institute

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:

  1. Coupled inland-coastal hydraulics
  2. Scaling hydrologic and hydraulic models from small basins to regional watersheds
  3. Utilizing hydroinformatics to address flood inundation
  4. Support remote sensing of water information through engagement with the computer science community

Questions should be submitted to Danielle Tijerina at dtijerina@cuahsi.org.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: 2019 UCOWR/NIWR Annual Water Resources Conference

June 11-13, 2019 in Snowbird, Utah

Scale new heights as we come both west and up in the spectacular Wasatch Mountains in Snowbird, Utah just outside of Salt Lake City. The challenges facing the water community are constantly increasing in number and growing in complexity. In facing an uncertain future related to water availability in the West, water overabundance and quality in the East and Midwest, and water damage in the Southeast, the need for communicating our research and ideas is ever more important.

UCOWR and NIWR invite you and your colleagues to join leading researchers, educators, water managers, and other professionals from across the country to address some of the most compelling and important challenges facing our profession.  This year’s conference is unique because, in addition to being both a scientific conference and an exploration of how universities help to meet societal goals, it will highlight the many unmet challenges in a newly uncertain cultural and regulatory climate.

Abstract Submission

Abstracts for oral, poster, panel, lightning, and participatory presentations should be submitted electronically by January 25, 2019.

Abstracts should not exceed 300 words.

 If accepted and presented, the abstracts will be published as part of the Conference Proceedings.
