WATER COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Summer Institute on Earth-surface Dynamics

The Summer Institute on Earth-surface Dynamics engages graduate students and young researchers in interdisciplinary investigation of Earth-surface processes based on integration of theory, physical experiments, field work and numerical modeling. The key objective in this year’s SIESD is to develop a working knowledge of analysis tools that can help us navigate the complexity of surface-process interactions to provide insights into the behavior of depositional systems. For more information please visit: nced.umn.edu/siesd.

  • Corvallis Forest/Rock Creek Watershed Annual Tour

The free, annual tour of the City-owned property near Marys Peak will take place Wednesday, May 21 beginning at 5:00pm.
