Cyberseminar Series: Major Challenges in Key River Basins

Join us for the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science (CUAHSI) 2018 Fall Seminar Series: Major Challenges in Key River Basins Around the World, which will take place on Thursday at 4pm PST, beginning September 20, 2018.

In this seminar series, you will hear perspectives from a diverse set of emerging researchers regarding the challenges and possible solutions facing major transboundary river basins in the world, such as the Indus River Basin in Pakistan, the American and Sacramento River Basins in California, the Ohio River Basin in the United States Midwest, and the Nile River Basin in Ethiopia.
