Water Institute Faculty and Students,


NOAA, CUAHSI and Dr. David Maidment (UT Austin)  are very interested in improving the physics in the National Water Model to better forecast Florida conditions.  If you are interested in participating in such an endeavor consider applying to the 2017 National Water Center  Summer Institute.

Subject: Reminder! Now Accepting Applications for the National Water Center Summer Institute!


CUAHSI is now accepting student applications for the

National Water Center Innovators Program:

Summer Institute of 2017

June 12 – July 28, 2017

at the NOAA National Water Center and the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, AL


Apply by December 18, 2016.



Incoming and current graduate students and post-docs (within three years of receiving their PhD) affiliated with US universities are invited to apply to participate in the National Water Center Innovators Program - Summer Institute of 2017. The themes of this year’s Summer Institute are hyper resolution simulation, flood inundation mapping, and communication with first responders.


Accepted applicants will receive room, board, and tuition to attend the program, where they will have the opportunity to collaborate intensively for seven weeks on projects designed to contribute to the NWC goals of enhancing water-related products and decision-support services across the country. The Summer Institute will be led by faculty theme leaders and daily oversight will be provided by student Course Coordinators.  Following the Summer Institute, students will present their work at the CUAHSI Hydroinformatics Conference July 25-27, 2017.


Please note that the dates for the Summer Institute have been shifted since the call for applications was originally announced. The Summer Institute will now take place to June 12 through July 28, 2017 to more closely coincide with the CUAHSI Hydroinformatics Conference which will be held at the University of Alabama July 25-27, 2017.


Visit https://www.cuahsi.org/summerinstitute for additional program information, application instructions, and highlights from last year’s Summer Institute.


Complete student applications must be submitted no later than 11:59 pm ET on Sunday, December 18th.
