Wyoming EPSCoR|Education, Outreach, and Diversity

Outreach

Meetings with Stakeholders

A central focus of WyCEHG is to engage with stakeholders throughout the state in an open, two-way dialogue: researchers will inform stakeholders of research progress and capabilities, and stakeholders will identify emergent focus areas important to them. For more information, contact Ginger Paige.

Local Water Forums

In these place-based meetings, the project team will identify and work with decision makers and interested parties in the regions near the WyCEHG research sites, inviting federal and state agencies (Bureau of Land Management, United States Forest Service, United States Geologic Survey), resource managers (State Engineers Office, Wyoming Water Development Commission, Wyoming Association of Conservation Districts) and end users (Basin Planning Councils, irrigation districts). For more information, contact Ginger Paige.

Wyoming Water Association

Several annual meetings in Wyoming will be held at which the state-level management authorities meet to discuss critical areas in water resources, including scientific and decision needs (WACD, Wyoming Water Association, SEO Wyoming Water Forum). The project team will engage with these authorities to ensure that research outcomes are targeted towards providing tools, technology and knowledge of relevance to the state. For more information, contact Ginger Paige.

WIG: Annual Water Interest Group Meeting

WIG Meeting

WyCEHG will host scientific workshops with Wyoming-based agencies, researchers and stake holders, private and public partners, researchers and managers/researchers from the region who are active in areas relevant to the program. These diverse participants include Western Water Assessment, the WY/UT EPSCoR Track 1/2 Consortium, the Tristate NM/ID/NV EPSCoR Consortium, USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station, BOR, etc. WIG meetings will be held three times during the course of the grant. The first meeting was held in October, 2013. For more information, contact Ginger Paige.

Collaborations

Utah/Wyoming

Wyoming is collaborating with Utah through a joint Track 2 CI-WATER effort aimed at synthesizing hydrological models using HPC capabilities. This collaboration will be further strengthened by each state's Track 1 shared research focus on hydrology in a changing world. The joint efforts will be magnified through continued Track 1 collaboration: Wyoming's novel subsurface geophysics approaches will augment the surface processes being studied at Utah and vice-versa.

NCAR

Wyoming EPSCoR will collaborate with NCAR to provide trainings in code writing and model development.

Critical Zone Observatories

WyCEHG will quantify processes and properties of the surface and near subsurface, which together embody the "Critical Zone" (or CZ), where water, rock, air and life meet in a dynamic interplay that generates soils, sustains ecosystems and shapes landscapes. Our work is closely aligned with growing national and international initiatives in CZ research and tackles issues of water sustainability in the US West and thus is well aligned with the goals of NSF'sScience, Engineering, and Education for Sustainability (SEES) portfolio, including the WSC initiative.

Communicating Science

Bi-Monthly WyCEHG All Hands Meetings

Twice a month, WyCEHG researchers will present information on their current work, techniques, observations, tools, strategies and findings. Meetings in the Spring semester are held every other Tuesday in Classroom Building 105 at noon. 

The Keg

The Keg is WyCEHG's quarterly newsletter.

Annual EPSCoR Newsletter

Wyoming EPSCoR will be publishing a yearly newsletter about our research, education, outreach and diversity.

Communicating about Water

Communicating About Water engages students across disciplines on water issues through writing opportunities. For more information, contact Liz Nysson.
