The Global Institute for Water Security, Centre for Hydrology and Global Water Future’s is pleased to host a special seminar by Dmitri Kavetski, Professor and Deputy Head of the School of Civil, Environmental, Computer and Mining Engineering at the University of Adelaide. The presentation takes place on Thursday, March 14, 2019, at 12:00 pm CST in the NHRC Seminar Room 1261. Dmitri’s presentation is entitled Advances and challenges in probabilistic hydrological modelling at the catchment scale.
Attached is a poster, please feel free to pass on this to others who think may be interested. For those of you who will not be in Saskatoon at this time, the lecture will be live streamed and viewable here – https://www.usask.ca/water/lecture-series/special-seminars.php.
The final version of Canada in the Global Water World: Analysis of Capabilities report has been recently released. The report examines the capacity of Canada’s water sector with respect to meeting and helping other countries meet the water-related targets of the UN’s global sustainable development agenda.
Co-authors of this report include Centre for Hydrology director John Pomeroy and members Robert Sandford and Chris DeBeer.

Water is life. And water security – both quality and supply – is one of the most critical issues facing the planet.
Join us during U of S Water Week to celebrate our new $30-million Canada Excellence Research Chair in Water Security, and hear how some top U of S researchers are helping to protect and manage this precious global resource, through a series of events.

Dr. Edgar Herrera, PhD has been appointed the IP3 Atmosphere-Land Surface Modeller for the Improved Processes and Parameterisation for Prediction in Cold Regions Network at the Centre for Hydrology. Dr. Herrera is a graduate of Univ. du Quebec, INRS-ETE in Quebec and UQAM in Montreal where he specialized in regional climate modelling and statistical hydrology. He brings a specialized capability to run atmospheric models to the Centre for Hydrology and will be focussing on running the GEM-LAM and CLASS for IP3 research basins and investigating atmospheric feedbacks from improved land surface representation of snow, ice and soil frost processes. He will also be examining scaling relationships and problems associated with running large scale atmospheric models over complex terrain to drive hydrological models.
Welcome to Saskatoon Edgar!
