Environmental models, including groundwater flow and transport models, have traditionally been developed to address specific, narrowly defined issues. As these issues become broader and scientific understanding of the interconnectivity of different systems grows, models become more complex in an attempt to include multifaceted systems as processes. Model integration, i.e. linking existing individual models, is widely used as an alternative to building very complex multi-process models or frameworks.
The course, designed for
PhD students, postdocs, MSc students and other early career researchers, is taught by experts in flood risk management and modelling from JBA Consulting and Lancaster University
The course covers:
• Fundamentals of hydrological processes and measurement with field exercises
• Evaluation of the NFRM evidence base
• NFRM framework illustrated with exercises in opportunity mapping, modelling and stakeholder co-production

Following 5 years of success as a key platform for driving innovation in the water industry, the 2017 WWT Water Industry Technology Innovation Conference returns on November 30th.
The UK has experienced repeated severe flooding in recent years, which has raised the profile of Natural Flood Management (NFM) creating a prominent discussion of the benefits of working more closely with natural processes to help reduce flood risk and complement more traditional engineering responses, aiming to manage and reduce flood risk in a more efficient, cost-effective and sustainable way.
Scotland's Flagship Annual Water Conference
This conference bring together 150+ major stakeholders in the Scottish water sector.

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.
