COMMUNITY WATER ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Reminder! Water Research Symposium Abstracts Due March 6th
If you are interested in having an oral or poster presentation at the annual Hydrophiles' Water Research Symposium (April 26th-28th), abstracts are due this Friday, March 6th. To submit, please visit:
  • Colorado State University Graduate Research Assistantship
There is a graduate research assistantship for a PhD-level student at Colorado State University in Fall 2015. Research will encompass hydrology, geospatial analysis and hydrologic modeiling as part of an NSF-funded project on hydrologic change in mountain regions. For more information, please contact Stephanie Kampf at stephanie.Kampf@colostate.edu.
  • New Course in Forest Hydrology
For gradaute students studying topics related to hydrology, the FERM department is offering FE 536: Environmental Impacts of Forest Disturbance for the first time this Spring. This course is an introductory physical hydrology class, and serves as a follow up to FE 532. It will focus on the effects of environmental disturbance on watershed hydrology and sediment yield. For more information, please contact Arne Skaguset at arne.skaugset@oregonstate.edu.
  • ICCG Webinar on Water Challenges in the Agricultural Sector
The International Center for Climate Governance is posting a webinar on water challenges as they relate to world agriculture. The webinar will take place on Friday, March 6 at 12:00 pm.
