Freshwater Runs!

Freshwater Runs!

CEE Hydrology graduate students (from left to right) Yifan Cheng, Claire Beveridge, Justin Pflug, Ryan Currier, and Amanda Manaster participated in the Global 6K for Water on May 6, 2017 at Gas Works Park. They had tons of fun taking a break from coding their hydrologic models and getting to run in the sun!!

Assessing Trends in Sediment Processes in Puget Sound Watershed

Assessing Trends in Sediment Processes in Puget Sound Watershed

Assessing Trends in Sediment Processes in Puget Sound Watershed We hope that this workshop will support continuing and new research collaborations. Our objective is to generate a good summary of the state of knowledge as well as a list of emerging science questions and potential impacts, and the data and modeling needed to address them.

Aquatic Carbon Biogeochemistry of the Pacific Coastal Temperate Rainforest Region

This workshop will define the state of the science for understanding carbon fluxes from Pacific Coastal Temperate Rainforest (PCTR) ecosystems.  It is our hope to develop a quantitative understanding of the relationships among land cover, hydrology, and riverine carbon export for to coastal environments. We will be addressing the following questions: 1) What are the biogeochemical fluxes of water and carbon across the terrestrial – freshwater – marine interfaces of the PCTR and are they changing through time?

Geohack Week 2016

The University of Washington’s eScience Institute hosted its first Geohackweek Nov. 14 – 18, 2016! Inspired by AstroHackWeek and Neurohackweek, the conference combined tutorials with group work (“hacks”) on computational projects in geospatial sciences.  UW Freshwater hacked Geohackweek by proposing three projects related to water questions that would benefit from innovative geospatial tools in order to advance the science.

Confluence - By Awad Schmaltz

UW Freshwater at the Museum of Northwest Art (MoNA)

Confluence – By Awad Schmaltz In an ongoing experiment to link art and science, researchers from the Climate Impact Group and Civil & Environmental Engineering partnered with local artists to develop exhibits on topics like climate change, sediment dynamics and water quality with visual expression.  The collaboration was facilitated by UW research partner Skagit Climate Science Consortium, and included the Skagit Land Trust, Skagit Watershed Council, and Swinomish Indian Tribal Community.
