Water Energy Nexus


May 9 2021: Master’s or PhD Assistantship in WEF Nexus research in urban farming systems at UDC
The University of the District Columbia (UDC) is seeking a PhD or Master’s student to be appointed as a Research Assistant to conduct Water-Energy-Food Nexus research in urban farming systems with the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Science (CAUSES), beginning Summer or Fall 2021.

May 9 2021: SRI2021: Early Career Fund now available for young professionals

"The Sustainability Research & Innovation Congress 2021 (SRI2021) has created a dedicated Early Career Fund which will support young professionals to participate in the event virtually or in-person if the country of residence is Australia. SRI2021is the world’s first transdisciplinary gathering in sustainability – it will be a space of fierce advocacy for sustainability scholarship, innovation, collaboration, and action and will feature sessions on the Water-Energy-Food Nexus."

Case Study

May 9 2021:"Owini, a company in the Mitrelli Group, implemented an innovative water desalination system based entirely on solar energy, within the village Ombala"

"The province is characterized by extensive and arid territories and was hit by a severe drought that the region has endured since 2018. The water desalination system is able to conserve the energy produced during the day, and allows continuous operation of pumping and supplying water to the community around the clock."

Five free statistics software that you can use in Water Resource Research

Statistics is an essential part of water resource research. But presently all the popular statistical software is expensive and for a student or individual researcher, it is nearly impossible to procure such software. For example, the cost of the most popular statistical software is as given below : Statista ($59 per month,billed annually) Sigma XL : $299.00 USD(Single Licence) IBM SPSS Statistics ($99 per user per month) JMP : $1200 Minitab : $1610.00 USD(Single User Annual Subscription) There are many other paid software programs that offer various statistical analyses, such as Origin Pro and Stata, but their prices vary depending on location, number of users, and other factors. That is why they ask you to request a quote, and upon receipt of your request, they will provide you with a quotation based on your specific requirement. An individual researcher, on the other hand, cannot afford such a high price. As a result, we must rely on grants or institutes to obtain this software.

Lecture Series on Flood Routing : Part III

Level Pool Routing Hydrologic Routing for Reservoir or Level Pool Routing Hydrologic routing predicts the flow of water through a river system, whereas level pool routing focuses on the changes in water levels in reservoirs or lakes. However, Level Pool Routing is referred to as Hydrologic Routing of the Reservoirs as the water level of the reservoir is assumed to be horizontal or level at the time of prediction of the outflow hydrograph. Understanding and managing water resources in a variety of settings, from metropolitan regions to natural landscapes, requires the use of both approaches. Taking into account several elements that can affect water flow, such as precipitation, evaporation, and runoff, is a crucial part of hydrologic routing. Hydrologists can develop models that mimic how water flows through a river system in various scenarios by examining these variables. Predicting floods, controlling water supply, and safeguarding ecosystems that depend on a constant flow of water al
