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.’

Digital elevation models (DEMs) are a primary data input for many applications in spatial hydrology and geomorphology. DEMs are commonly used to delineate watersheds, to map landforms and soils, to analyze stream networks, and to model variable source areas, surface runoff and flooding, erosion, and contaminant migration. The past decades have been marked by significant improvements in the quality, spatial resolution, and availability of DEM data sources.

Register today.

Coffee and light refreshments will be provided.

Key topics covered

Monday, January 30, 2017 — 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM EST

Richard Luthy, from Stanford University, California

Description

California is entering its sixth year of drought. It’s clear that the old ways of coping with drought — overdraft of groundwater, stream depletion, and greater imports — will no longer meet the needs of the 21st Century. The solution to our challenge of urban water security will likely consist of a combination of demand management and the development of a portfolio of new water supplies.
