 2017 Conference Banner

 2017 National Conference

The 2017 Conference will explore how water has been exploited, managed, protected, and shared as it crosses jurisdictional boundaries in North America. The program will address the best (and worst) approaches and solutions to interjurisdictional water management on the continent, with a view to influencing future public policy.  When submitting an abstract, you will be requested to indicate your choice of theme and sub-theme, and to specify your preference for either an oral or poster presentation, or a Pecha Kucha style concise presentation.

Principles of Hydrologic Modelling UW Graduate Course and Professional Short Course

The course is over 50% full, Register now!

Presented by CSHS
June 19-24, 2017
This course addresses the development of computational models of watershed hydrology in support of water resources management and scientific investigation. The full model development and application cycle is considered: pre-processing, understanding, and generating input forcing data; system discretization and algorithms for simulating hydrologic processes; parameter estimation; and interpreting model output in the context of often significant system uncertainty. The course will include practical applications of models to alpine, boreal forest, prairie, and agricultural settings in Canada.
