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).

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

First NERC grant (Dec 2017)

We have just heard that our NERC/ESRC/DFID proposal on ‘Financial planning for natural disasters: the case of flood risk in Central Java’ was successful.

We will soon be advertising a two-year senior Research Associate (Postdoctoral) position to work on Flood risk and Financial planning (with me), starting early in 2018. Please do get in touch if you are interested. Advanced programming (R or Python) and GIS skills strongly desirable!
