We would like to draw your attention to a special session on Ecohydraulics
during this year's AGU Fall Meeting, December 11-15 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The session is titled "Ecohydraulics: Flow-Biota and Sediment-Biota
interactions", and will deal with the interactions between hydraulic,
ecological and geomorphic processes in natural systems. We welcome
computational, laboratory and field approaches, and encourage submissions
addressing the transference of understanding across scales. The session was
very well received in 2016 and with your help it will continue growing and
become a staple at the Fall Meeting.
The abstract submission site is now open: https://fallmeeting.agu.org/2017/abstract-submissions/
Early abstract submission deadline is July 26th, and regular submission
deadline is Wednesday, August 2nd.
Full details and description are included below, we are looking forward to
receiving your abstracts by August 2nd and discussing your exciting work during
The conveners, Rafael Tinoco, Heide Friedrich, Laurel Larsen.
Session Title: EP013. Ecohydraulics: Flow-Biota and Sediment-Biota
Session ID: 23219
Section/Focus Group: Earth and Planetary Surface Processes

The need for understanding the interactions between hydraulic, ecological
and geomorphic processes in natural systems has generated an increase in the
number of interdisciplinary projects in the field of ecohydraulics.
Computational modeling, laboratory experiments, and field studies at a wide
range of scales are conducted to understand the underlying physical and
biological processes on flow-biota-substrate interactions. This session focuses
on the lessons learned from such approaches: advantages, limitations, best
practices, and the future of the field.
Research topics include, but are not limited to: 1) Hydrodynamics and
geomorphic impacts of aquatic vegetation, 2) Organism-Habitat relationship and
habitat selection, 3) The role of organisms and communities as ecosystem engineers,
4) Effects of flow-biota interactions on transport processes of nutrients and
pollutants. We particularly encourage submissions that address the challenge of
transferring information and understanding across scales, ranging from the
stem-scale to the landscape scale.
The Local Organizing Committee of the 7th International Symposium on Hydraulic Structures (www.ishs2018.de) is pleased to announce an extension of the abstract submission!
Due to the big response from the community, the new (and final!) deadline will be on 30th June 2017.
The LOC is grateful for the overwhelming number of abstracts submtted so far and looks forward to welcoming you to the next ISHS in Aachen / Germany from 15th to 18th May 2018.
For any further inquiry, feel free to contact us under firstname.lastname@example.org.
With best regards from Aachen,
PS.: Don’t miss the opportunity to join the Workshop on Nonlinear Weir Design: Theory and Practice, co-hosted with the symposium!
The University of California, Davis invites applications for a 2-year postdoctoral position to research linkages between river archetypes and catchment terrains. Landscape patterns and landscape elements such as hillslopes, streams, and riparian zones influence hydro-biogeochemical functional areas of watersheds as well as hydro-geomorphic dynamics and river ecosystem functions. Prediction of these landscape elements and their relationship across a wide range of scales is an important scientific problem with societal ramifications. The project team is working with the State of California on designing environmental flows for the diversity of hydrogeomorphic settings in the region. For a region of this size, it is essential to ascertain ways of using information from data rich locations and spatial scales to inform those that are data poor using training datasets. The project will involve multivariate statistical analysis, terrain analysis, data mining, and ensemble machine learning techniques. These will be applied to multiple spatial scales of terrain data, spanning scales from physiographic provinces down to local channel geomorphic units.
The successful candidate will interact with diverse researchers and stakeholders in academia and state agencies. Candidates must have a PhD in Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Civil Engineering, Physical Geography, Hydrology, Geology, Soil Science, Ecology, or related field. Extensive knowledge in terrain analysis, data mining, data management and analysis, and computer programming are preferred. The successful applicant may participate in some fieldwork, but this will depend on applicant preference and project needs. Proven experience with statistical analysis, geospatial analysis, and computer programming (including preferably R and/or Python), is preferred. Excellent data management skills and a journal publication track record are preferred. Salary and employee benefits will conform to the terms of the UC system-wide postdoctoral scholars’ union. There are over 1,000 postdocs at UC Davis, providing a diverse, vibrant community of scholars.
The application deadline is July 3, 2017. There is some flexibility with the start date, ranging from August 1 to September 15, 2017. Please send curriculum vitae and contact information for three references to Professor Greg Pasternack by e-mail to email@example.com. UC Davis is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
