Freshwater Alliance is hosting a webinar with guest speaker Dr. John Pomeroy on June 28 at 12 pm PT/1 pm CST/3 pm ET.
Dr. Pomeroy will discuss how the multi-national research project, Global Water Futures (GWF), is working with hundreds of researchers to deliver risk management solutions—informed by leading-edge water science—to manage water futures in Canada and other cold regions where global warming is changing landscapes, ecosystems, and the water environment. In the webinar, Dr. Pomeroy will share highlights of the research to date, and opportunities for the freshwater community to collaborate with GWF researchers.

Global Water Futures (GWF) is hosting the inaugural Annual Science Meeting from June 3-6, 2018 at McMaster University and Six Nations of the Grand River.
The primary purpose of the Global Water Futures inaugural Annual Science Meeting is to provide an opportunity for all GWF researchers and affiliated highly qualified personnel to gather and share their scientific findings and other relevant activities and outcomes with GWF community and users/stakeholders. Over 360 researchers, scientists, students, stakeholders, end-users and community members from across Canada and internationally are expected to attend.
For more information, please visit the GWF Inaugural Annual Science Meeting website.
Dr. Siqiong Luo, GWF visiting researcher from the Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources, CAS, China, will present a seminar on Simulation of soil temperature and moisture conditions on the Tibetan Plateau.
The Tibetan Plateau is a particularly sensitive region to the globe warming. The soil temperature and moisture conditions and their changes on the Tibetan Plateau will have profound effects on surface energy and water exchanges and leading to further climate change. The aim of this presentation is to discuss the soil temperature and moisture conditions which was simulated by land surface model on the Tibetan Plateau from 1961–2010.
The seminar will take place at 12 pm (CST) on May 30, 2018 in NHRC 1261 (seminar room). This event will also be available via WebEx. Details are as follows:
