The gang attends the Kansas Water Office conference in Manhattan, KS. Proud of the Ecohydraulics Lab for their posters at the Governor’s Conference on the Future of Water in Kansas. Special shout-out to Avery for 1st place! Research ranged from microplastics to flood inequities to sediment fingerprinting to turbidity currents to harmful algae blooms!!
Admin attends the Powell Center on Headwater Regimes in Fort Collins, CO. The Headwaters Research Working Group met at the United States Geological Survey Powell Center with the motivation of “understanding and protecting headwaters, measuring impacts and providing science to enable sound policy, and supporting research dedicated to downstream impacts”. We did some ideating, hiking,…
