Louis Calder Center – Biological Field Station, Fordham University

There is still time to Register!

We are pleased to again offer our summer freshwater algae field course. We focus on all groups of freshwater algae from diverse aquatic habitats. Students and professionals can gain proficiency in (or sharpen up on) using taxonomic keys, examining ecological factors influencing algal biodiversity, and collect high-resolution algal images and voucher specimens.

Instructor: Dr. John Wehr ( )

We are located in southern New York state in a wooded preserve that includes a 10-acre mesotrophic lake. We are less than an hour from New York City, and a short distance from the Appalachian Trail, the Hudson River, and many pristine and human-influenced aquatic ecosystems. We will sample a diverse range of lake, pond, and river habitats. We provide a full array of sampling gear, microscopy facilities, and an extensive taxonomic library.

IWA Water and Development Congress, Rwanda

7th IWA Water and Development Congress & Exhibition
10-14 December 2023, Kigali, Rwanda

Announcement and launch of call for submissions

The International Water Association is pleased to announce that the next edition of the Water and Development Congress & Exhibition will take place on 10-14 December 2023 in Kigali, Rwanda and that details of the call for submissions are now available.

With an overarching theme of water, sanitation, and climate resilience – keys to a water-wise future, the 2023 edition will present solutions spanning water and sanitation services, the role of water in urban areas, the links between cities and basins, and the opportunities to achieve climate resilience.

Huge investments are being directed towards water and sanitation infrastructure, particularly in the Global South, and the event will encourage participants to share knowledge on innovations in science and practice, highlighting the opportunities of securing new and effective solutions in water and sanitation policy, technology, and management.

About these positions:

These ORISE participants will provide research support across a varied nonpoint source (NPS) topic areas: (1) research and analysis to support the Clean Water Act Section 319 NPS Program, including national-scale research on state NPS management strategies, watershed-scale conservation practices, and evaluating water quality results in proposed NPS success stories, (2) support for EPA’s work with partners to manage nutrient pollution in the Mississippi River Basin, including research and outreach related to the Hypoxia Task Force efforts, (3) programmatic and technical research to support EPA’s Healthy Watersheds Protection Program, and (4) research and data analyses to support partnership work between EPA’s Nonpoint Source and State Revolving Funds programs.

Still Open! NOAA Support Job: University of Maryland SST Remote Sensing

A global Sea Surface Temperature scientist vacancy announcement has been posted to the University of Maryland job board. Applicants are invited to now apply to the position, which is slated to be open until March 15, 2023.  Note this position is not a NOAA federal job opportunity, but is for a support position offered through a Cooperative Institute – Cooperative Institute for Satellite Earth System Studies (CISESS) of the University of Maryland, College Park. UMD seeks a scientist to assist in the development of a new bias correction scheme for the 40+ year record of satellite global sea surface temperatures.  This work is a vital aspect of the production of NOAA’s next-generation long-term SST dataset, linking modern high-accuracy observations from current satellite data to those obtained from historical sensors.
