SAVE THE DATE FOR ANOTHER GREAT CSHS WEBINAR
OSTRICH - A SOFTARE TOOLKIT FOR CALIBRATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF HYDROLOGICAL MODELS
WEDNESDAY, MAY 18, 2016
12:00 - 1:00 PM CDT
REGISTRATION DETAILS AVAILABLE SOON
Shawn Matott's overall research agenda is to investigate important water resources management problems using heuristic optimization (e.g. genetic algorithms, swarm optimization, simulated annealing, etc.). Specific applications include: containing subsurface contamination via pump-and-treat well-field systems; preventing the transport of hydrophobic organic contaminants via multilayer sorptive barrier technologies; and automatic calibration of hydrologic models. In addition to providing new insights into these types of management problems, the work has also helped establish guidelines for the effective selection and use of heuristic algorithms within the environmental modeling community.
Meg Olson and Greg Schellenberg, National SYP Reps for CWRA, are planning a call before the to discuss the newest version of the Student and Young Professional handbook, the upcoming Annual Conference and AGM in Montreal, and how to best engage new SYP representatives from across the country.
THEY WANT YOUR INPUT!
But first they need to know when you are available! A Doodle Poll has been set up to determine a time for the call - Please respond before 12:00 PM EDT, Wednesday, April 27th to select your preference.
We look forward to hearing from all CWRA SYPs!
