Flood Modeller Suite 2017 (www.floodmodeller.com/conference) is one of the industry's premier flood modelling events. The 2017 conference will take place on Thursday 19th October at The Geological Society in London and provides an excellent opportunity for new and existing users of Flood Modeller to find out more about the software.
CH2M's Technical Director for Flood Modeller Suite, Dr. Jon Wicks, will open the conference by unveiling the innovative new tools and features provided within our industry-leading flood modelling software. The event will then allow delegates to learn more about the varied applications of Flood Modeller, and associated tools, through a series of presentations delivered by users of our software. Presenters include Amec Foster Wheeler, Arcadis, CH2M, CIWEM, Edenvale Young, Environment Agency, GBV (a Galliford Try, Black & Veatch joint venture), GeoRiver, JBA Consulting and Kaya Consulting.
A one-day training workshop on efficient and effective flood modelling will also be taking place on Wednesday 18th October at CH2M's office in Hammersmith, London.

AGU session #27124 " Sorting by particle property and other 'granular' mechanisms and their influence on earth and planetary surface processes"
AGU Fall Meeting, December, 11-15, 2017, New Orleans.
Just a couple weeks before the deadline: early bird Wednesday July 26, final deadline: Wednesday, 2 August, 11:59 P.M. EDT.
Sorting of particles by size, density and other properties plays a significant role in earth and planetary surface processes. As constituents unmix, they influence other dynamics from transport rates to average and extreme stresses. For example: Sorting of a wide range of grain sizes results in patterns such as armoring, gravel patch formation, and downstream fining and modifies bedload and suspension fluxes; Sorting in a debris flow gives rise to a well-known coarsening of the front or snout, affecting bed erosion and other geomorphological effects and hazards; Sorting of particles also plays a role in hazards associated with snow avalanches, pyroclastic flows, rock avalanches, and other geophysical flows. This session involves experimental, theoretical, numerical and field-based contributions on grain sorting behaviors and their influence on earth surface processes. Research is most welcomed at different scales, from the grain to the basin and within different environments, including coasts, estuaries, rivers, mountains....

An exciting post-doc opportunity is available to join the Department of Civil & Structural Engineering (CSE) at the University of Sheffield (UoS) for conducting high quality fundamental and industry-relevant research in flood modelling. The post is part of a 5-year research project “Smart forecasting: joined-up flood forecasting (FF) infrastructure with uncertainties” funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Research Council (EPSRC). The prospective post holder will be based in one of the largest urban water research groups in the UK working across our Fluid Mechanics Group and Pennine Water Group that is now part of the Sheffield Water Center.
The post holder will be tasked to develop a mathematical modelling foundation for flood simulation in considering both deterministic and stochastic contexts. The core technical task will entail combination of mathematical theories at the interface between numerical analysis (incl. finite volume, discontinuous Galerkin and stochastic Galerkin methods), multi-resolution analysis (incl. multi-wavelet scale decomposition of functions) and computational hydraulics (for handling of real-world features). These theories will be merged from the perspective to produce a platform for realistic modelling of flooding across various scales for mesh-grid and/or uncertainties. The post will involve close guidance from a mix of project partners including applied mathematicians, scientists and consultants from the hydraulic software industry and the UK Environment Agency. It will also entail a range of activities including research placements to the academic and industry partners (i.e. demo visits, short stays for training/exchange), annual participation in international conferences, public engagement and flood expo events, co-supervision of PhD students, mild teaching involvement on the research subject, organisation of an industry relevant workshop.
The post seeks candidates holding a PhD (or shortly due to complete) in computational mathematics, engineering, hydraulics or fluid dynamics with a demonstrated potential of model code development and validation. A strong mathematical background, established programming skills, and ability to carry out numerical analysis and code development are central to the post. Practical experience in modelling shallow flow problems is beneficial. The appointee is expected to be: autonomous in building the necessary skills to address a research task needs, possess high organisational and planning skills, work well under pressure and within an interdisciplinary team including scientists and engineers, have good interpersonal ability, be prepared to travel for research placements and visits, provide day-to-day reporting in track of the project deadlines, be able to communicate (verbally and in writing) their research effectively to specialist and non-specialist audiences and to be keen on publishing scientific journal papers.
The post is initially available for 18 months and can be extended to 42 months on the basis of annual review of performance. Salary ranges from £30,175 - £38,183 per annum. Potential to progress to £41,709 per annum through sustained exceptional contribution.
Applicants should further look at the full details of post (reference UOS016742) in the job section of the University (https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/jobs), where applications should be formally submitted. Informal enquiries are welcome and may be addressed to Dr Georges Kesserwani (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Deadline for application is 27 August 2017
Dear experimentalist - we are pleased to invite you to contribute an abstract to the following AGU session:
EP030. Physical experiments of Earth surface processes: novel results and advances in methods, instrumentation, and data handling
Section/Focus Group: Earth and Planetary Surface Processes
Session Viewer Link: https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm17/preliminaryview.cgi/Session29476
Session ID: 29476
Physical experiments provide useful insight for investigating Earth surface processes at high spatial and temporal resolution. They are used to develop and test theories for the processes and products of surface evolution, from bedrock erosion to stratigraphic architecture. And the resulting models are applied to tackle a diverse range of problems, spanning interpretation of Earth and other planetary surface signatures to informing environmental management practices. New insights from physical experiments often require advances in our collective abilities to acquire, store, disseminate, and mathematically wade through data. Join us in presenting your contributions to these important areas of experimental research. This session highlights: (1) results from laboratory and field experiments that study sedimentary and hydrologic systems, (2) recent advancements in experimental methods and instrumentation that are allowing for the measurement of previously unquantified, or under sampled, dynamics in Earth surface processes; and (3) new methods and best practices surrounding data analysis, storage, and dissemination.
