The next Panel presentation will be delivered online via WebEx on Tuesday 14th July 2020 starting at 5pm sharp. Event is free for EA Members but pre-registration is required.
It is expected that as temperatures increase, extreme precipitation will increase resulting in more severe flooding. However, in Australia, there is significant evidence of decreasing flood maxima, despite increases in extreme rainfall.
This online webinar will explore changes in flood timing and magnitude from the AWRA-L. The result is a ‘worst of both worlds’ scenario whereby the rare flood events that are used in design of infrastructure are increasing, but smaller events, critical for water supply and dam storage are decreasing.
We are pleased to announce that the next presentation is titled Introduction to the Guidelines for the Maintenance of Stormwater Treatment Measures and is co-hosted by Stormwater NSW. It is scheduled for:
6pm 17th March 2020 PSA House Auditorium 160 Clarence Street Sydney
The event is free for EA and SNSW members, but we really prefer pre-registration so that we can manage numbers for the venue.
The first call for abstracts for the 2020 Hydraulics in Water Engineering is now live. Please check out all the details on the conference website and, to be nice to the organisers, submit an abstract early.
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.
