Monday, December 11, 2017 - 09:00 to Friday, December 15, 2017 - 17:00
Location: 
New Orleans

Fall Meeting is the largest worldwide conference in the geophysical sciences, attracting more than 22,000 Earth and space scientists, educators, students, and other leaders. The year 2017 will mark the 50th year and the Fall Meeting continues to bring together the entire Earth and space science community from across the globe for discussions of emerging trends and the latest research. The technical program includes presentations on new and cutting-edge science, much of which has not yet been published, meaning you’ll return to work with knowledge you can’t get anywhere else.

River Modelling and Drainage Assessment for Flood Risk Management

Date: 
Tuesday, January 23, 2018 - 09:00 to Wednesday, January 24, 2018 - 17:00
Location: 
Howbery Park, Wallingford

This course is targeted at local authorities, with the objective of helping participants understand the fundamental hydrological and hydraulic modelling issues necessary for the delivery of robust flood risk (FRA) and drainage impact assessments (DIA) / conceptual drainage designs. Current software facility and visualisation tools can often enhance understanding but can also lead to a reduced reliance on technical comprehension; and to rigorous model schematisation, parameterisation and numerical model output checks being overlooked.

Is Britain Prepared for Floods?

Date: 
Thursday, February 8, 2018 - 09:00
Location: 
Central London

Present estimates state that annual flood damages for the whole of the UK are £1.1billion, with around 5.4million properties in England at risk of flooding from rivers, the sea, surface water or all three. In 2017 coastal areas across the UK have been hit by severe winds and heavy rain, causing power cuts and damage to properties. In North Yorkshire flash flooding has caused road closures and trains have been cancelled. Whole communities across the UK have been left isolated, without power, with severe disruptions or damage to local transport infrastructure.

Natural Capital Investment Conference

Date: 
Thursday, March 1, 2018 - 09:00
Location: 
British Library, Central London

The Natural Capital Investment Conference taking place in London on 1st March 2018 will identify the best ways of securing much-needed investment in the UK’s natural environment. Organised by the Ecosystems Knowledge Network, it will be a significant step forward in the quest for new ways of financing the restoration of key natural features such as woodland and wetland.  The benefits that flow to everyone from this ‘natural capital’ have been valued at billions of pounds.
