Who:

USGS water scientists from 15 states will convene with resource managers and policymakers to discuss and share innovations relating to our Nation's water resources. The purpose of the workshop is to raise the efficiency and quality of USGS water programs through training, exposure to new technologies and networking with other USGS scientists. The innovations in hydrologic science are directly related to flood and drought forecasting and response, ground-water and water-quality, environmental and watershed management, and water-based recreation -- issues that affect Oklahoma, including most recently, significant flooding.  Information and demonstrations on how USGS responds to floods, collects scientific data, and utilizes new technologies pertinent to flood warning will be available.

Presenters include scientists from the USGS, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Water Survey of Canada, and private industry. Topics to be discussed include acoustic meters, bathymetry developments, electromagnetic seepage, monitor technology, lake water-quality platform design and collection, continuous water-quality monitors and safety of field personnel.
