Seven most coveted job openings for hydroinformatics engineering

Topics related to informatics (AI,ML,IoT,ICT) and its applications in water resources development are referred to as Hydroinformatics Engineering. In recent years, the demand for educated manpower in this field has increased manifold. As a result, job opportunities related to this field have increased proportionally. This post is about the seven most desired job opportunities that are available only for hydro informatics engineers. 1) Data Engineers of Water Related Projects The data engineers develop and apply technology-enabled, digital solutions to some of the world’s most pressing water-related challenges to harness the power of data, advanced analytics, and modelling for acquiring real-time insights at the global, regional, and local levels. The jobs of data engineers include but are not limited to hydrodynamic modelling, water quality modelling of inland and coastal water systems, weather management, operational management systems etc. where technologies of data analysis are requ

Seven NGOs trying to solve the crisis of SUSTAINABLE WATER

Humans have exploited water resources just like other natural resources. Day by day, due to the scarcity and uneven distribution of water all over the World, "many fear that future wars could be fought over water".  Natural water bodies such as rivers, lakes, and ponds are sources of drinking water that also help to control floods, support biodiversity and regenerate groundwater.  The population of the World is already facing a severe water crunch. But this population is constantly growing and thus the situation will worsen by 2030. The government of many countries is trying its best but economic constraints, as well as various political conspiracies, prevent the overall development. That is why they create various funds and made them available to Non-Governmental and Non-Profit Organizations(NGOs). They have the capacity to directly channel the resources received from the government and utilize them for water conservation. This article identified seven NGOs for their exempla

Vulnerability Analysis of Water Resources of Peri-urban Watersheds in face of Climatic Abnormalities : Call for Paper

You are invited to submit a paper for possible inclusion in the forthcoming monograph entitled: Vulnerability Analysis of Water Resources of Peri-urban Watersheds in face of Climatic Abnormalities Abstract: The uncontrolled utilization of water resources and burgeoning population and their demand for luxury has induced abnormal warming of the global climate. As a result, the regular pattern of climate has been compromised which has multifaceted direct and passive impacts on the water resources of the river basins. Although there is a noticeable number of studies which has tried to highlight the vulnerabilities of the watersheds towards this abnormal climatic pattern but impact analysis of climatic ambiguities on the water resources of peri-urban watersheds has been rarely attempted. The peri-urban watersheds can be segregated as unique watersheds that flow through a peri-urban landscape. Such basins do not face the urbanization impacts which are encountered by the urban watersheds, but

Five most innovative and sustainable water bottles

Cover Feature: Five most innovative water bottles selected by ODM V2 Five most innovative water bottles Water bottles are now becoming smart. Recently launched water bottles have the capability to track your hydration level and can remind you to drink water when the hydration level is below a predefined level. Some water bottles can either increase or decrease the temperature of the water in the container. Some alternatives come with blue tooth speaker/stirrer/fuser/wifi etc electronic devices. Some variation of smart water bottles has the ability to self-purify when needed. Here in this feature, we try to find the most innovative smart water bottles that are available on the eCommerce sites with the help of ODM. Now let us continue with the regular features : News about Sustainability Audi e-tron's used batteries in e-rickshaws by Nunam A new study finds inactive yeast could be effective as an inexpensive, abundant, and simple material for removing lead contamination from drinking

Five Most Popular English Movies (Fiction) on “Climate Change and its Impacts on Water Resources”

Students working in the field of climate change and water resource modeling often complain that they can’t see what they are predicting. They are confused about the reliability of their models and depend on some statistical indices to analyze the accuracy of their predictions. But if they want to have an idea about the reality of their predictions then they must watch the following five movies which simulate the future based on one or more climate change based impacts:.....

7 most recent application of GIS in the identification of suitable location for rain water harvesting

The water crisis has been rapidly increasing these days in many parts of the world which emphasize the importance of refinement in water management systems. Harvesting of rainwater(or rainwater harvesting(RWH)), which involves the collection and storage of rainwater for future use, is an area of increasing interest and one of the most suitable measures for ensuring water availability in the future days. The location of RWH is of utmost importance for the success of the water harvesting project. Locations for the construction of RWH structures like check dams, percolation tanks, bench terraces, contour ridges, and contour bunds can be determined by the application of Geographical Information System(GIS), Multi-Criteria Decision Making(MCDM), and different predictive models. Below are the seven recent case studies which demonstrate the procedure of location selection for RWH. 1) Case Study of Kiambu County-Kenya The ideal sites for five rainwater harvesting structures (bench terraces, ch

Seven New Runoff Prediction Models

Runoff Prediction Models Runoff Prediction Models(RPM) are those models which predict the runoff or flood peak of a watershed or input runoff to a dam etc. Generally, such models require climatic parameters, geomorphology, soil characteristics, and land cover as input against which a runoff model can predict the monthly, weekly, daily, or even hourly runoff. These models can be spatially distributed or lumped, temporally long or short, data-driven or conceptual.  In recent years due to the massive development in data-driven and smart concepts like artificial neural networks(ANN), decision trees, and evolutionary algorithms, application of such techniques are now common to develop RPMs. Among data-driven techniques, ANN is the most popular, followed by evolutional algorithms. But compared to the standalone application of neural networks, hybrid models where ANN with conceptual models like HyMOD or HEC is found to be more successful. Hydrologic models like RPMs need to be calibrated and
