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.

As our research group continues to grow, we have our first PhD student joining us this summer. Welcome Charlotte!
PI Mauricio Arias attended a workshop on December 10-12 at the Institute for International Studies at UC Berkeley, where a selected number of scholars discussed about how the future of the Mekong Delta is compromised because of changes to its sediment inputs and hydrological drivers.
Our research group just settled at USF in the Fall of 2016. Lots of interesting research opportunities in South America, South East Asia, and right here at home in Florida!
