H51H:
Hydrology and Earth Sciences in Data Scarce Regions: Research and Education Methods from Remote Sensing to In Situ and Crowd-Sourcing Approaches I Posters


Session ID#: 8791

Session Description:
This session will highlight research and education opportunities and challenges of using innovative data collection and integrated modeling approaches to finding hydrologic and earth sciences solutions in data scarce regions. This session includes: 1) Locally appropriate and scientifically valid data collection and instrumentation methods, 2) Use of remote sensing and global weather datasets for hydrologic modeling, 3) Problem driven approaches to addressing critical environment, development and health challenges, 4) Use of information technology to uptake research findings, 5) Hydrologic problems and solutions specific to developing world communities, and 6) Unique education and research approaches in partnership with developing world communities.
