Women Advancing River Research Seminar Series

Wiley Presents: Women Advancing River Research

Ongoing challenges associated with Covid 19 have isolated members of the river research community by restricting in-person attendance at workshops and conferences. However, Covid 19 has also created opportunities by enhancing the community’s use of online communications platforms.

We are deeply aware of the unusually heavy burden that family responsibilities associated with child- and elder-care during Covid have placed on many of us, but particularly on women in science. Consequently, we would like to highlight and celebrate women’s research contributions through this online seminar. The seminar features monthly presentations by twelve women who have made significant contributions to our understanding of rivers. Each live presentation will be recorded, with a live question and answer session immediately after the seminar and a second live question and answer session the following day at a different time to facilitate participation across time zones. Details will be advertised a week before each seminar, but scroll down for dates and titles of seminars. All seminars are at 11 am eastern US time. Seminars are live, with live question & answer session immediately after. Seminars will also be recorded and archived on a publicly available website.
