River Basin Management 2017

19 - 21 July 2017

Organisation: Wessex Institute

Location: Prague, Czech Republic

Event Overview:

River Basin Management 2017 is the 9th Conference in the series which marks the growing international interest in the planning, design and management of river basin systems.

River Basin Management includes all aspects of Hydrology, Ecology, Environmental Management, Flood Plains and Wetlands. Riverine systems are coming under increasing pressure due to anthropological and natural causes. Prominent amongst the problems affecting them is water scarcity and quality, which requires the development of improved methods for better river management.

Changes in the landscape, use of the land and climate conditions lead to a continuous revaluation of river basin management objectives. This requires the development of better measuring tools as well as the use of increasingly accurate computer software.

The objective of this series of conferences is to bring together practitioners and researchers in academia and industry in the hope that their interaction will foster mutual understanding and lead to better solutions for river basins.

Advanced webinar on methods in using NASA remote sensing for health applications

01 - 15 June 2017

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Location: Online training/webinar

Course Overview:

Every year, environmental conditions adversely affect the health of millions of people. Environmental data can be combined with public health information to predict and monitor potentially dangerous environmental health events, such as disease outbreaks, harmful algal blooms, excessive heat, airborne allergens, and low air quality.

In this advanced webinar, participants will learn how to access and apply NASA data relevant to public health. The webinar will include a presentation on tools available for evaluating the relationship between environmental conditions and health outcomes, followed by lectures on pollen dispersal and heat stress mitigation. Two homework assignments will give participants an opportunity to review and practice what they have learned during the presentations.

The course will have weekly, one-hour live broadcasts available twice a day at either 10:00-11:00 or 15:00-16:00 EDT (UTC-4).
