The next panel presentation, which is incredibly relevant to the current drought, is scheduled for:
26th November 2019 BoM Elizabeth Street Office Register/Network from 5:30pm Formal Start: 6:00pm
We already have a lot of interest for this so please ensure that you pre-register to ensure your place.
Droughts cause significant problems in Australia. However, we still do not know the true chance of a drought occurring or how reliable existing infrastructure is for dealing with current and future drought impacts. This talk (i) summarises recent research that demonstrates how drought risk changes due to multidecadal climate variability and (ii) discusses the implications of this for water management, policy and infrastructure.
It has taken a while for our backend systems to catch up but all three presenters have submitted their slides in PDF format and the video from the BoM conference facility is live on YouTube, check it out via the embed below or watch it natively on YouTube.
The next Panel presentation will be deliver by three highly skilled operators and managers that have extensive experience in the deployment and analysis of drones in Water Engineering. We are being hosted by the Bureau of Metereology at their Elizabeth Street facility on 27th August 2019. Free for members ($30 for non-EA or BoM) but please pre-register and check out the PDF flyer for all the details.
organisers have locked in most of the speakers for the Kuzcera
Symposium and its clear that this event is rapidly becoming the event to
be at for Hydrolody theory and practice in Australia and New Zealand
for 2019. Some of the highlights include:
National Testing Model and Big Data
Integrating drought risk and drought planning
Urban systems hydrology
Next generation stochastic data for water resource planning
Applying an MCMC approach to pipe condition assessment
Urban water planning methods: step change or trend
Practicalities and learnings from 2 years of ARR
Hydrological model development and parameter fitting
Early bird pricing closes at 5pm sharp Sydney time today (24th May 2019)
and with the symposium a little over two weeks away there won’t be any
last minute extensions.
On 12-13 June 2019 we will be holding a symposium marking George’s formal retirement from The University of Newcastle and the start of George’s post-university career and lifestyle. This will be a symposium open to all George’s friends and professional colleagues to celebrate the myriad of contributions George has made to hydrology research and professional practice throughout his career, and to look forward to the future in these areas by identifying Grand Challenges in research, practice, and how to link the two.
Unprecedented growth in Sydney is putting pressures on the receiving waters. The increases in nutrients runoff and discharges affect the aquatic health and can influence the liveability of urban areas near receiving waters. Management of these nutrients will be critical in ensuring liveable healthy communities through maintaining aquatic health and supporting the economic activities on the rivers and creeks.
The Australian Road

They will be delivered by Mark Babister and Bill Weeks in Brisbane on 30
April/1 May and Melbourn on 4/5 June.
