2nd annual OzEWEX workshop

The 2nd national workshop of the Australian Water and Energy Exchanges initiative, OzEWEX 2015, will be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, Broadbeach, Queensland, Australia on Wednesday 2 December 2015.

We have joined forces with the organisers of MODSIM 2015 and make use of the same venue and break in the conference schedule. Delegates will be able to combine participation with the MODSIM 2015 conference or register separately. 

Participation is free – this workshop is made possible by support from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science (ARCCSS), Bureau of Meteorology, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and The Australian National University. In addition, this year’s event is generously supported by the European Union project eartH2Observe – Global Earth Observation for Integrated Water Resource Assessment.

As last year, the focus will be on thought-provoking presentations and discussion rather than short research presentations. 

Spatial hydrology: observation, modelling and forecasting.

Will be the theme for this year’s event. This theme will be explored in plenary sessions and in parallel sessions around the following topics: 

  1. Observing hydrology at different scales: needs and opportunities
  2. Multi-objective data assimilation in hydrological modelling
  3. Advances in characterising errors in models and observations 
  4. Ecohydrological function: is Australia’s vegetation really unique? 
  5. Attributing changes in natural hazards to climate and non-climate causes 

Influential invited speakers from Australia and from abroad ill present their views, including:

  • Dr Clara Draper (NASA)
  • Dr Richard De Jeu (Transmissivity, Netherlands)
  • Prof David Maidment (University of Texas, Austin)
  • Dr Ian Prosser (Bureau of Meteorology)
  • Dr Jaap Schellekens (Deltares, Netherlands)
