Where can you find a world-class group of student researchers from one of the premier institutions of hydrology and water resources, an exciting display of innovative and cutting edge-posters from all areas of water science, and a gathering of the best and brightest professionals, alumni, and faculty working in that field—all on one day and all in one location? At the University of Arizona’s 23rd Annual El Dia del Agua!
The Department of Hydrology and Water Resources and the HWR Student Association will host El Dia del Agua 2013, the annual student research showcase, on April 10, 2013. El Dia is one of the hallmark events to be held during EarthWeek 2013 sponsored by the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences.
El Dia del Agua Agenda
El Dia del Agua 2013 will feature a registration and continental breakfast hour, student oral presentations during the morning and afternoon, and student poster sessions several times throughout the day. A light buffet lunch will feature a talk by Maria Baier, CEO of The Sonoran Institute and former Arizona State Land Commissioner. Following the final afternoon oral and poster sessions is our keynote speaker, Dr. Abe Springer, Professor, College of Earth Sciences and Environmental Sustainability at Northern Arizona University. Following the keynote address, student prizes and awards will be announced. The president of the HWR Student Association will then announce this year’s recipients of the AquaMan-Aqua-Woman Awards, voted by the student population, that recognize the most outstanding junior and senior faculty instructors in the department. Following the awards ceremony, a reception and social hour will be held for sponsors, attendees, and student presenters.
