The University of Arizona Water Resources Research Center (WRRC) will hold its 2016 Annual Conference, #AZwaterfuture: Tech, Talk, and Tradeoffs, to consider emerging technologies, communication strategies, and policies to meet Arizona’s water needs into the future. Do not miss this opportunity to engage in a unique exploration of new ideas and innovative pathways for water management.
On February 12, the WRRC hosted Marty Ralph, Director, Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes and Researcher at UC San Diego's Scripps Institution of Oceanography to discuss Atmospheric River Science. Rivers of water vapor in the sky, which is how Dr. Ralph describes atmospheric rivers, are key to understanding the character of storm fronts and precipitation in the western United States.
We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Water Resources Research Center Photo Contest. This year we gave photographers only two criteria - that photos be water-related and that they be taken in Arizona.
Throughout the year, the Water Resources Research Center works tirelessly to bring trusted water information to Arizonans and to share Arizona's water story widely.
The U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the National Institutes for Water Resources is requesting proposals for the FY 2018 Water Resources Research National Competitive Grants Program (104g). Grants will support research on improving and enhancing the nation's water supply. Any investigator at an accredited institution of higher learning in the United States is eligible to apply. Proposals may be for projects of 1 to 3 years in duration and may request up to $250,000 in federal funds.
