Lab let loose at the Gordon conference


Jeff, Julian and Anna spent last week at the Gordon Research Conference on Catchment Science in New Hampshire. It was a great week of seminars, discussion sessions and poster presentations with 100 new and old colleagues in the field of catchment science. Julian led discussions on transferability of hydrological research across temperate to tropical climates. Anna presented a poster on results of threshold runoff generation during this spring’s snowmelt at Swift Current. Meanwhile, Jeff took an unorthodox (but very entertaining) approach to enlivening an evening discussion session by serenading us on the piano to “Don’t Let the Grants Run Out on Me” (played to the tune of Elton John’s “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me”) with help from Nicholas Howden on vocals. The mix of significant, but light-hearted, talks and exchanges on catchment hydrology was interspersed with us all battling it out on the tennis courts and soccer field. We’re pleased (well, Julian and Anna are at least) to announce that the 2nd biennial Europe vs. North America soccer game came out with the Europeans on top. Pictures coming soon!
