Upcoming Event

Dmitri Kavetski

Title: Advances and challenges in probabilistic hydrological modelling at the catchment scale

When: March 14, 2019

Time: 12:00 - 1:00 PM

Location: National Hydrology Research Centre (NHRC) Seminar Room (1261), Saskatoon, SK

About Dmitri:

Professor Dmitri Kavetski is the Deputy Head of the School of Civil, Environmental, Computer and Mining Engineering at the University of Adelaide. Dmitri obtained a Bachelor of Environmental Engineering (2000) and a Doctor of Philosophy in Environmental Engineering from the University of Newcastle Australia. 

Dmitri's research interests include mathematical modelling of surface and subsurface hydrological systems, development of numerically robust rainfall-runoff and snow models, and more generally the design of robust and computationally efficient numerical algorithms for nonlinear differential equations and for nonlinear optimization.

Title: Multi-scale modelling of mountain snowpack in the Canadian Rockies: recent advances and current challenges

When: March 04, 2019

Time: 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: National Hydrology Research Centre (NHRC) Seminar Room (1261), Saskatoon, SK

About Vincent:

Dr. Vincent Vionnet joined the Centre for Hydrology in September 2017 as a Research Scientist, member of the Global Water Future (GWF)’s Core Modeling Team. He holds an Engineering degree from the Ecole Polytechnique (France) and a PhD in Environmental Sciences from the Paris Est University (France). Before joining GWF, he was working as a research scientist at the Snow Research Center (Météo France) in Grenoble, in the heart of the French Alps. He has strong expertise in modelling of the snow cover in mountainous terrain and its interactions with the atmosphere in support of avalanche hazard, hydrological and numerical weather forecasting. In particular, he has proposed innovative modelling strategies to improve our current understanding of blowing and drifting snow in alpine terrain. At present, he is participating in the GWF project by developing and evaluating the current and the next generations of snowpack and hydrological forecasting systems in the Canadian Rockies. He is based at the Canadian Meteorological Center (Environment and Climate Change Canada) in Montréal (Québec).
