CSHS Professional Hydrology Certification Survey

The Canadian Society for Hydrological Sciences (CSHS) is currently exploring the level of interest among the hydrological and water resources community for professional hydrology certification in Canada. Several jurisdictions outside of Canada have already established a professional certification for hydrologists. One example is the American Institute of Hydrology. The results of this anonymous survey will be presented and discussed at the CSHS Annual General Meeting at the upcoming 2016 Canadian Water Resources Association (CWRA) Conference in Montreal on May 25. 
Results will also be posted to the CSHS website.

Visit the CSHS News and Events page for English and French Surveys.

CSHS Webinar Event
OSTRICH - A software toolkit for calibration and optimization of hydrological models

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

12:00 - 1:00 PM CDT

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.

2:00 pm CDT

Meg Olson and Greg Schellenberg, National SYP Reps for CWRA, want your SYP input before the National Conference in Montreal. The conference call will be used 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.
