EGU 2019

At the EGU General Assembly in Vienna this year, I will be:

  • Co-convening ‘Hydrological extremes: from droughts to floods’ (HS2.4.1) Orals: Mon, 08 Apr, 08:30-15:45, Room B
  • Co-convening the Short Course ‘Using R in Hydrology‘ on Monday evening
    + presenting a talk on ‘Parallel and HPC computing for hydrologists’
  • Presenting ‘Using R in Hydrology: recent developments and future directions‘ (EGU2019-2823 in Session HS1.2.7/EOS8.1/GM2.16) – Innovative methods to facilitate open science and data analysis in hydrology – from data collection in challenging environments to data sharing, visualization and modelling. Details TBC

Other planned talks for 2019 are listed here.

AGU 2018

I’m excited to present two papers at the AGU Fall meeting in Washington D.C. in December this year –

  • One hydrology paper: Slater, L.J., Anderson B., Blum, A., Archfield S., Attribution of changes in hydrologic extremes to changing land cover, AGU USA →  session H51L: The Role of Data in Understanding and Attributing Changes in Hydrologic Extremes (Friday 14 December, 08:00 – 10:00; H51L-1446)
  • One geomorphology paper: Slater, L.J., Khouakhi, A., Climate modes of variability and fluvial response over interannual to multidecadal timescales → session EP52B: Signatures of Climate Change in Surface Processes I (Friday 14 December, 11:20am,  147A; EP52B-05)

Our exciting session on ‘Flooding and Geomorphology‘ will be chaired by Chris Hackney and Georgie Bennett (I will be arriving at AGU later in the week):

  • Advances in Incorporating Geomorphology and Flooding: Feedbacks and Impacts on Flood Risk Posters (Monday 10 December, 08:00 – 12:20, Poster Hall A-C; EP11E).

New paper in HESS: Science in today’s media landscape
