CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: 2021 UCOWR/NIWR Annual Water Resources Conference

June 8-10, 2021

The conference planning committee is pleased to invite abstract submissions for the 2021 UCOWR/NIWR (Virtual) Water Resources Conference. Gaps in projected water supply and demand, declining water quality, increased food and energy needs, and a changing climate highlight the numerous water challenges facing society and water resources professionals. UCOWR and NIWR invite you to join leading researchers, educators, water managers, students, and other professionals from across the country and world to join the dialogue as we seek to develop solutions to complex water resources challenges and explore bridges between science and policy. We call your attention to a special focus on Water and Social-Environmental Justice and especially encourage abstracts on this timely and critical topic.

Update: Submissions due Feb 21, 2021

Water Resources Club

The Water Resources Club at Washington State University is a community of students and advisers committed to engagement with local and regional water issues.  We cherish and celebrate clean and bountiful water for humans and wildlife, alike.

We are from many backgrounds: engineering, environmental science, art, cultural and spiritual wisdom, policy, and economics. Join our club to add your voice today.

We at the Water Resources Club are passionate about engaging in education and projects that improve the quality and abundance of water for all living things. We are interested in many facets of water issues: from the science and engineering of watersheds and water systems, to management and policy of water resources, to the regional cultural and spiritual aspects of water. Contact us to suggest a project for our involvement or issues around which we can help spread awareness, or join our club to add your skills and vision.

2021 PNW Water Research Symposium

The Pacific Northwest Water Research Symposium, hosted by the Oregon State University Hydrophiles, is a two-day, student-centric conference highlighting outstanding student research in the fields of water resources science, engineering, and policy. This year the conference will be held virtually April 12-13th, 2021. The conference aims to connect individuals, build skills, and share knowledge between students, university faculty, staff, and professionals. This symposium brings students from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and beyond to present their proposed, ongoing, or completed research.

 

Current graduate and undergraduate students conducting freshwater-related research in any field (science, policy, engineering, etc.) are invited for presentations. This conference is open to anyone to attend. There is no cost to present or attend. The Symposium provides an invaluable opportunity for the exchange of ideas among students, university faculty, professionals working in water resources, and the surrounding community.

Toxics in Puget Sound Workshop

9am-4:30pm on Friday, February 5th to hear updates about monitoring, research and emerging science from the Puget Sound.

The Stormwater Strategic Initiative Lead (SIL), part of the Puget Sound recovery community, is hosting this workshop.   Many thanks to our standing advisory team (SIAT) and planning team for their contributions. The workshop is designed to identify red flag monitoring for action oriented solutions/strategies.

The February 5th Workshop day will focus on science only and will address PCBs, PAHs, PBDEs and CECs, among other toxics.  We will be emphasizing emerging science and the discussion will address sources, pathways and impacts.

The February 26th workshop- Part II- will address some of the pressing issues associated with our Toxics in Fish Implementation Strategy while providing broader context regarding prevention, human health and a wide range of contaminants and toxics.

Zoom link will be sent upon registration. The final agenda will be sent before the event.

Register here.

Thank you to our funder, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Call for Abstracts: 11th Northwest Climate Conference

Abstracts are due Friday, November 27

The 11th Northwest Climate Conference will take place online on April 6-8, 2021.

Special Sessions Abstract Submission

Oral Presentation Abstract Submission

Poster Abstract Submission

The Program Committee welcomes submissions on a range of themes and topics related to climate science, impacts, adaptation and management decisions. We welcome presentations on work that links science, decision makers and communities.

The Northwest Climate Conference (NWCC) is committed to building equity and diversity in climate science, policy, and adaptation practice and supporting equitable climate adaptation outcomes. Abstracts related to these topics are strongly encouraged. If you know of organizations involved in this work, please share the call for abstracts with those organizations.

In addition to soliciting presentations that specifically address climate justice and equitable climate outcomes, all submitting authors are asked to consider how their work connects to issues of diversity and equity, and how the conference can better support equity and diversity in climate science, policy, and adaptation practice.

The Program Committee will group abstracts primarily by theme and secondarily by topic. Topics include drought, wildfire, extreme events, coastal flooding, human and ecosystem health and resiliency planning. Topics of broad interest that are approachable for a wide audience are strongly encouraged. Visit the Northwest Climate Conference website for more information about themes and topics.

The Northwest Climate Conference provides a unique opportunity to learn from and connect with a diverse community of experts fostering a more climate-resilient Northwest. The event brings together practitioners, scientists, tribal communities and decision makers to share knowledge, ideas and best practices related to climate change science, impacts and adaptation in the Pacific Northwest.

 

Brown Bag Webinar: Water for Nature: University of Arizona Resources Research Center

Date: Thursday, October 22, 2020

Time: 12:00 – 1:15 p.m.

Location: Webinar Only

Speaker: Kristen Wolfe, Coordinator, Sustainable Water Network

Kristen Wolfe will be presenting Water for Nature, a talk focusing on environmental water, the forgotten/ignored stakeholder in water policy, management, and law. Leaving water for nature out of water laws and management has had dire consequences for our rivers, streams, and springs. Climate change and unsustainable growth are accelerating river depletion. It is time to find ways to allow for water for nature. Human uses depend on healthy, flowing rivers.

1-day, virtual Google Earth Engine workshop

There is a 1-day, virtual Google Earth Engine workshop that will run Thursday 08 October 09:00-16:00 PST. Registration is free and will be capped at 15 participants. Please follow this link to register (https://forms.gle/a5zd1xsKfAdkhmeXA).

The workshop will be given by Xiao Yang from the University of North Carolina. (https://geosci.unc.edu/people/postdoctoral-scholars/xiao-yang/).

While the current material for the workshop is still under construction, the workshop will broadly pertain to the key commands, tools, and functions of Google Earth Engine. While the workshop will cover syntax and fundamentals of the Google Earth Engine framework, the workshop will also include case studies, so as to demonstrate applications of how others are using Google Earth Engine for their research.

For those who may be curious but less familiar, Google Earth Engine is a cloud based platform that enables global scale analysis of geospatial and remote sensing data. Unlike other geospatial applications (e.g., ArcGIS, QGIS, DIVAGIS), Google Earth Engine leverages the computing power of Google servers to efficiently scale analysis across large regions and over decades.

No experience with Google Earth Engine is necessary to partake in the workshop, although it will be assumed that participants are at least familiar with a coding language.

If you have any questions about the workshop, please feel free to reach out to Michael Meyer (michael.f.meyer@wsu.edu) or Julie Padowski (julie.padowski@wsu.edu) directly.
