Climate Change Impacts on Gulf of Alaska Hydrology and Freshwater Discharge

The Conservation Biology Institute (Oregon, USA) is organizing a webinar entitled "Climate Change Impacts on Gulf of Alaska Hydrology and Freshwater Discharge" taking place in early April. Jordan Beamer, an Oregon State University PhD WRE candidate, will present his modeling studies of the impacts of climate change on freshwater resources along the Gulf of Alaska (GOA) coastline. His work has quantified the increases in coastal freshwater discharge (FWD) that can occur due to increases in precipitation and temperature and decreases in glacier cover. Read More...

Water Resources Management using NASA Earth Science Data

NASA is hosting a webinar series comprised of five 1-hour sessions on 13, 20, 27 October and 3, 10 November 2015. Each session will be held two times a day to allow national and international participation from different time zones ( 10-11 AM and 2-3 PM Eastern US time).


To provide 1) information about availability and access to global freshwater data for applications in drought and agricultural management, flooding and reservoir management from NASA remote sensing observations and land-atmosphere models and 2) GIS-based analysis of regional water budget for applications in water resources management.
