Friday, February 24, 2017 — 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM EST

Environmental scientists and engineers often require calibrating and testing their models against observed data. Despite major research efforts by the hydrological community, both topics present formidable challenges, both in operational and research settings.

Coffee and light refreshments provided.

Description

The first half of the talk reviews recent advances in uncertainty quantification in catchment-scale hydrology, from operationally-oriented advances in residual error modelling to the fascinating direction of uncertainty decomposition.

Abstract:

The Cognitive Dynamic System (CDS) is a unique research tool inspired by certain aspects of the brain; one aspect is "predictive adaptation," known in cognitive neuroscience. From an engineering perspective, predictive adaptation plays a key role in the CDS, most importantly when the environment is disturbed by the presence of unexpected adverse events, commonly referred to as ‘risk.’

Thursday, February 16, 2017 — 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EST
