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.
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.
