    Natural Flood Management

    Peter Jones, Managing Director, Waterco Consultants

    NFM is promoted on the basis that it is both a lower cost solution and has wider environmental benefits than traditional 'hard engineering' approaches.
    There is no problem in convincing people of its merits; but difficulties arise when answering questions such as: "how much will it reduce flow?" and "what will it cost?"
     

    There is no charge for this event.

    Spaces are strictly limited by the size of the visitor centre so prior booking is highly reccomended.

    For more information please contact Pedr Jones.

    To book a place for this meeting please use our online ticket service.

These 'elevator pitch' style presentations will provide attendees with a broad appreciation of Cardiff University's environmental research interests.

    This event will help promote greater understanding of Cardiff University's research activities, and provide practitioners with access to cutting-edge research, which should help them in their day-to-day jobs. By developing closer working relationships between academic and industry practitioners will be able to highlight issues of emerging concern and help direct the direction of key research strands going forward. 

    All the speakers are PhD students and research assistants within Cardiff Univeristy's Hydro-environmental Research Centre, the Director of which is Professor Roger Falconer.  Topics covered by the Centre are numerous and varied, and include the proposed Severn Barrage, faecal coliforms in the coastal environment and hydrodynamic modelling of estuarine and coastal waters.

    Cost for the event is FREE and is open to non members. Light refreshments will be available from 5.15pm (for a 5.45pm start).  Please contact: Tracey Dunford, welsh@ciwem.org

    This meeting will look at two aspects of modelling.

Our speaker Joe Clarke from CH2M Hill will also describe how the benefits of some components of the model can be quantified at different scales.

    The second presentation will focus more on water resources modelling. Steve Knox (Uni. of Manchester) and Brett Korteling (CH2M Hill)are part of the team developing Hydra Platform (database and server) and Hydra Modeller (User Interface), to facilitate the creation of bespoke Applications (simulation and optimisation models and data management/analysis routines) to support networked water resources management. This talkwill describe how an Application interacts with Hydra and give an overview of the Hydra Modeller User Interface and the functionality it offers such Applications.

  • Future and Evolving Opportunities for Water & Environmental Professionals ‘Pre-Christmas Networking Event’

    18:00

    Dear Members, 

    We invite you to join us for a very interestingeveningto learn about 'Future & Evolving Opportunities for Water and Environmental Professionals'with a keynote talk related to the topic ofPsychology and the Environment.

    Kelvin Reay, CIWEM Metropolitan Branch Vice-Chair - Young Members Update

    Lila Thompson & Marta Perez, British Water International Director & Technology Manager - Developments within the UK and International Water Industry for 2015

    Sam Hall, Carbon Plan Ltd, Sustainability Consultant - Psychology & the Environment: Health & Well Being in the Urban Environment

    This evening event is an opportunity to address some of the areas that young, as well as mature water, and environmental professionals may have to consider in their career development in 2015 and beyond; within our rapidly evolving sector nationally and internationally. Our aim in this branch meeting is to have plenty of time for networking, not only to discuss how to further advance our common interests in the branch; but also how to prepare younger members with mentoring relationships built within the branch, as well as develop the opportunity to participate in a Young Member's competition in 2015 and prepare a call for young members to present short presentations of their current work in a future evening seminars in spring. Ideally after the event we can go to a nearby pub for some pre-Christmas drinks and to give everyone further opportunities to network with others in the branch and exchange more ideas. The keynote talk is related with the topic of the Use of Urban Environments in Health and Wellbeing, since modern cities become more complex and the issues surrounding Environmental Health, compared to several decades ago, are now becoming far more complex. Sam Hall, our guest speaker, has experience working both as a Psychologist and also as an Environmental Manager with Sustainable Design in the Built Environment with Carbon Plan Ltd. This evening seminar will be of interest to all our young and mature members and our guests whether water, wastewater or environmental professionals.

    Booking:  It is essential that you pre-register, as we have limited places available. Preference will be given to CIWEM members.  Please confirm your intention to attend as soon as possible to avoid disappointment with Dr Ioannis Alexiou, Chairman CIWEM Metropolitan Branch at:: i.alexiou@hotmail.co.uk
