Using R in Hydrology – short course @EGU18

We’re delighted to announce that the ‘Using R in Hydrology’ workshop will be running again (for a second year) at EGU 2018!

The session is organised in cooperation with the Young Hydrologic Society (YHS) and materials will be made available on the YHS GitHub page (rhydro_EGU18).

EGUR

Convener: Louise Slater
Co-Conveners: Shaun Harrigan, Claudia Vitolo, Tobias Gauster, Alexander Hurley, Guillaume Thirel.

  • Introduction to the short course – Louise Slater
  • Accessing hydrological data using web APIs (a demo of the rnrfa package) – Claudia Vitolo
  • Extracting netCDF climate data for hydrological analyses (reading and visualising gridded data) – Louise Slater
  • Processing, modelling and visualising hydrological data in R (tidyverse; piping, mapping and nesting) – Alexander Hurley
  • Hydrological modelling and teaching modelling (airGR and airGRteaching) – Guillaume Thirel
  • Typical hydrological tasks in R (List columns, Leaflet and coordinate transformation, Open Street Maps) – Tobias Gauster

The session is aimed at researchers who are interested in hearing more about R as well as those who are advanced R programmers wanting to discuss recent developments in an open environment.

EGU 2017

I’m delighted to have obtained funding from the British Hydrological Society to give two talks at the European Geosciences Union in Vienna in April:

  • Slater, L.J.. An early career researcher’s perspective on presenting flood risk research to the media (solicited)PICO on Wednesday, 26 Apr 2017 at 13:46 in this session (HS1.10 How my water research made the news, by invitation only).
  • Slater, L.J. and Villarini, G. Statistical-dynamical long-range seasonal forecasting of streamflow with the North-American Multi Model Ensemble (NMME)Oral on Friday, 28 Apr 2017 at 11:30 in this session (HS4.6/CL3.02;From sub-seasonal forecasting to climate projections: predicting hydrologic extremes and servicing water managers).
