Blogs, Webinars, Webcasts and Free Information

Well since we are in the information age it is always nice to partake in the amount of information provided for free, especially if that information is informative and crucial for something as important as water resources management.

Thus, I have sourced sites providing information for free via blogs, webinars and webcasts. In order to access these information portals you can click on the links below

2-Session Webinar on Stream Restoration

Forester University has informed us that they are having a 2-Session Webinar on Stream Restoration (Basics & Techniques). Although this would not be a free webinar (sorry ­čÖé ) it would be discussing ┬áthe major stream restoration design areas and the associated tools, computations, and confirmations including topics such as:

  • Fluvial Geomorphology: Stream patterns (meandering, braided, etc.), physical features of meanders, channel evolution, floodplain features, and stream classification
  • Hydrology: Determining appropriate design discharge for main channel geometric design and overbanks areas
  • Hydraulics and Channel Dimensions: Development of the main channel width, depth and slope
  • Back Check of Design: Confirming resulting hydraulics and flow duration meet all objectives

This session would be presented by Dr. T. Williams on July 28th and 30th.

Open Access (International Association of Hydrological Sciences)

Hey guys as you may know, we are expecting a 2015 subscription for the Hydrological Sciences Journal published by the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS).

Due to assistance from one of our colleagues, I have been made aware of an open access publication to refereed proceedings in hydrology provided by the International Association of Hydrological Sciences. Thus one can easily access abstracts and PDFs.

Thus one can access articles in relation to hydrology from 2014 to 2015. Topics on which information is provided include hydrologic models, flood risks, remote sensing and GIS, water scarcity, sedimentation, climate change and land use to name a few.
