Congratulations to Awet Tsegay for succesfully defending his thesis "Underground Stormwater Treatment Performance in Urban Coastal Catchments: Case Study of Baffle Boxes in the City of Tampa".
Summer is here and it is promising to be a busy season! Lots of field work in Tampa and the Keys, setting up our Eco Eng. physical analysis lab, theses, workshops, and conferences.
Here is Awet checking out one of our stormwater sampling locations.
This semester we have been fortunate to have two new members join our group, Loren and Osama. We are all glad you joined!
And was featured in the cover of the 2017 December 8 issue.
Mauricio and Michelle attended the AGU Fall meeting in New Orleans. Mauricio presented two posters related to research in the Mekong and Michelle presented part of her work at EPA.
To celebrate the end of the year, WaSus and Friends met for a fun evening coming up with some special pizza recipes!
We now have a very nice group of graduate researchers from all over the world and working in a couple of cool projects. Please check their profiles and stay tuned for updates on their research.
After Mauricio and Mohit attended the International Symposium on Flood-Pulse Ecosystems (http://floodpulse-ecosystems.org/), a newspaper article came out highlighting the "mood" of the symposium, including some of the findings from our research.
Here is a link to the article:
Mauricio just returned from a great exchange of ideas between multiple stakeholders interested in issues related to hydropower development in the Amazon. The workshop was organized by UF's Amazon Dams Network, and was hosted by the USGS in Flagstaff, AZ.
