WyCEHG Events Coming up in October!
The 2015 Water Interest Group
(WIG) Meeting and the WyCEHG Round Up!
The Wyoming Center for Environmental Hydrology and Geophysics (WyCEHG)
and Wyoming’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR)
invites water resource professionals, faculty, students, and the public to
attend the 2015 Water Interest Group (WIG) Meeting and WyCEHG Roundup.The WIG Meeting will include presentations by
WyCEHG researches and collaborators, break-out sessions to discuss research
needs, and an adjacent poster presentation as a part of the combined WyCEHG
Roundup research event.
The event will take place at the University of Wyoming’s Marian H.
Rochelle Gateway Center on Wednesday, October 14, 2015 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00
“This is the second of three
planned meetings that are intended to bring together water interests in Wyoming
as a part of the National Science Foundation award through Wyoming EPSCoR which
created WyCEHG,” say Liz Nysson, Education, Outreach and Diversity Coordinator
for Wyoming EPSCoR.
WyCEHG Water Interest Group Meeting in October 2013.
The first meeting was two years
ago in October 2013.According to
Nysson, that meeting focused on gathering information from the state and partners
so WyCEHG could develop meaningful research projects to benefit the state and
public. At that meeting, Patrick T. Tyrell from the Wyoming State Engineer’s
Office gave a presentation on data needs and priorities from a state water
rights agency perspective.Another
presenter, Harry LaBonde from the Wyoming Water Development Office presented on
hydrologic data needs.
These meetings are an opportunity
for those working in or concerned about Wyoming water issues to learn about
WyCEHG research, provide direction for future studies, and partner with the
WyCEHG research team. The upcoming meeting on October 14, 2015 will allow
WyCEHG to share their research findings with the public and State of Wyoming.
Meals will be provided for
registered participants—please register by 9/14/2015. Lodging accommodations
are not covered, but can be arranged at the Hilton Garden Inn which is across
from the Gateway Center or at another area hotel.
