Presented by: State Water Board
2018 California Water Boards Science Symposium
The Water Board’s Surface Water Ambient Monitoring Program (SWAMP) is hosting the 3rd Annual Data Science Symposium on June 20-21, 2018 in Sacramento, CA. This year’s symposium will address the theme of Adapting in the Face of Disruptive Landscape Change. Presentations and posters will describe how to collect, manage, and communicate monitoring information in anticipation of landscape change in response to long-term drivers such as climate change, population growth, and land use change, as well as rapid drivers such as fires, droughts, and floods. The following subject areas will be a focus of the 2018 symposium:
- Historical Ecology – What can history tell us about relationships between land use and water resources as urban, suburban, peri-urban and rural landscapes have changed over time in CA?
- Climate Change as a driver in water resource management.
- Fire as a driver in water resource management.
- Cannabis as a new driver in water resource management.
- Contaminants – The impacts on water resources of emerging contaminants, legacy contaminants, contaminants from fires, and contaminants from other sources; new methods for monitoring.
- Proactive Water Resource Monitoring – Are we collecting the right data and generating the right information to manage water resources in changing landscapes?
