Event description

Description

The Surface Water Ambient Monitoring Program (SWAMP), the California Water Quality Monitoring Council, and the San Francisco Estuary Institute (SFEI) are hosting the Fourth Annual California Water Data Science Symposium on July 1-2, 2019 in Sacramento, CA. This annual event aims to enhance how water quality monitoring generates meaningful data that informs water quality management decisions. This year’s Symposium will revolve around the theme of Open Water California- Innovating Through Integrating and Expanding the Water Data Community. Water data is being collected by a more diverse group of citizens and organizations than ever. Presentations and posters are expected to inform water resource issues for the following subject areas:

  • Open Science

  • Data Visualization

  • Freshwater Harmful Algal Blooms

  • Data Innovations

  • Trash and Microplastics

  • Remote Sensing

  • Ecological Flows

  • Community Science Monitoring

Community Water Science Concurrent Session- This year's symposium will have a concurrent session on Day 2, July 2nd, where the theme is about better civic engagement to increase collaboration with community water scientists, academia, and other non-agency data collectors in our water data and ecosystem health programs. This session will provide training and information on a variety of topics that are important to community water science organizations, such as developing a monitoring and quality assurance plan, working with laboratories, and multiple sessions on working with data.

Agenda - Coming Soon to the Symposium webpage.


Financial Hardships: While the event is free to attend, a limited amount of funding is available to help support those who would not be able to attend due to financial hardship.
