Water Community Announcements

The Hydrophiles are planning a career panel for 2012 and would like your help identifying professionals to participate.  If you know a water professional who might be willing to come to campus to talk about their profession and career path as well as answer questions from students please email their contact information to Kim Ogren at ogrenk@geo.oregonstate.edu.

Congratulation to the all the WRGP students that have successfully defended over the past couple of months- Daniel Bailey, Terry Freuh, Aida Arik and Chris Gabrielli!  Best of luck to all of you with your future plans.  If any other WRGP students have any achievements you would like to share with the OSU Hydro-Community let H2OSU know!

 

OSU Water in the News

“An Evolutionary Step”, an article recently published in International Water Power and Dam Construction Magazine explores the development of the Integrative Dam Assessment Modeling tool (IDAM).  IDAM was developed by a research team that included OSU faculty: Dr. Wolf, Dr. Tilt, Dr. Tullos and Dr. Magee.  IDAM is a new system to help policy makers better assess the costs and benefits of building dams. By using an interdisciplinary approach the distribution of biophysical, socio-economic and geopolitical impacts of dams can be evaluated by a single modeling system.
