Event Details

 Challenges of Drought, Wildfire and Flood in Colorado

The second in our four-part webinar series takes place on November 13 at 4:30 MST. We are excited to welcome three hydrologists from the US Geological Survey:  Dr. Jeff Writer, Dr. Brian Ebel and Sheila Murphy.

Jeff specializes in wildfire impacts on water quality and aquatic ecosystems, coupling of ecological and engineered infrastructure, fate and transport of emerging contaminants. Brian specializes in unsaturated flow and soil physics, surface water/groundwater interaction, hillslope hydrology and runoff generation, landslide and debris flow initiation, and post-wildfire hydrology. Sheila’s research focuses on the characterization of the hydrology and water chemistry of small watersheds and how they are affected by both natural factors and disturbance.

We’ll be streaming video from the CU Boulder campus, and will take questions from the live chat.

Educators:  earn .5 continuing education credit by attending both part one and part two of the webinars and completing independent assignments.

Teachers who attend this webinar will be able to:  

  • think about water conservation and climate change in the context of student learning through supplemental materials.
  • get access to curriculum and materials that satisfy state & national science standards.
  • write about their lessons in practitioner journals with support from university educators.

Who should attend?  All are welcome! This topic is particularly relevant for educators K-12 who would like to teach water conservation in the classroom. The webinars will also be of interest to citizens and policy makers interested in learning more about the role of water and how it is affected by climate change.

The “Climate Change For Educators” webinar series is sponsored by University of Colorado Boulder, LearnMoreAboutClimate.org, and CIRES.
