The 2012 ASCE-EWRI Hydraulic Measurement and Experimental Methods conference is now complete. This was a fantastic meeting, bringing together a diverse set of colleagues with unique perspectives on state-of-the-art measurement, modeling, and analysis techniques. I highly recommend this conference to anyone in the fields of water resources, hydraulics, or coastal hydraulics engineering.


Our (Drs. Webb & Whelton) presentation at the HMEM conference described the spatial variability of surface water characteristics in Big Creek Lake. The results were from a four-week study conducted in October 2011 as part of the Field Analysis and Sampling Techniques in Civil Engineering (FASTCE) course. A special thanks to those who made this possible: Richard Allen, Bennett Dulaney, Craig Erdman, Iryna Lucas, Chris Marr, J. Kane Thomley, MAWSS, and the National Science Foundation.
