In this issue of EOS Earth & Space Science News magazine (Vol. 100 No. 5) , topics highlighted include the devastating effects of ocean warming in the Gulf of Maine, ocean science and how the use of technology and modeling capabilities can improve one’s understanding of the ocean’s ecosystem, tsunami preparedness and the development of risk reduction programmes for the Caribbean region, as well as, identifying uncertainties in climate models and meteorological culprits of strange and deadly floods.

With climate change expected to impact the Caribbean, in terms of extreme weather conditions, researchers at the last Climate Modellers Meeting Consortium, in the areas of climate dynamics and modeling, meteorology, water, among others, hope to make strides in the field of climate science using data produced within the region.

A recent article by Partington et al., identifies a new modeling blueprint, which seeks to link sedimentology, hydrology and hydrogeology for the modeling of streambeds. The link presented below discusses with the authors the challenges and implications of such a modeling blueprint.
I have taken this opportunity to highlight some of the available materials on groundwater, as seen in the gallery below. There is a newer version to the text Groundwater for Geophysics edited by R. Kirsch, however, the one highlighted below is regarded as a good reference resource for the detection of groundwater sources through the use of geophysics. Persons wishing to view any of these resources can email me or visit me at my desk.

The textbook “GIS and Geocomputation for Water Resource and Science Engineering” (2015) provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of geographic information systems, as well as, demonstrates how GIS and mathematical models can be integrated to develop spatial decision support systems to support water resources planning, management and engineering.
This document provides information on topics such as water resources engineering, GIS, geocomputation, spatial datasets, hydrologic systems, data models, remote sensing, global positioning systems (GPS), data quality, analysis and watershed delineation, watershed budgets, water resources modeling etc.
