Photo credit: Laura Crossey Introduction My name is Jon Golla and I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Geology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I study fluid-rock interactions in the Critical Zone. My current work combines metal(loid) stable isotopes (i.e., Li and Si) and reactive transport modeling to characterize the biogeochemical … Continue reading Jon Golla Researcher Feature on Critical Zone Hydrology
It was a nice warm sunny day when we arrived at Cary Institute, situated in Dutchess County, NY, for our inaugural day briefing on SMAPVEX 2022 IOP2 campaign. I had enjoyed a good night’s sleep before coming down to the headquarters, as the forecast for the next 26 days indicated that I might not get … Continue reading Science through adventure: SMAPVEX 2022

Many student scientists entering the field of hydrology are trying to meet other hydrologists and answer the questions, “What does a hydrologist do?” and, “What do I want to do as a hydrologist?” As I explored these questions during my last semester of my undergraduate studies at Pitzer College, I started to find clarity when … Continue reading H3S Offers Professional Opportunities for Undergraduate Students in Hydrology

Hidden Curriculum - the unofficial and unwritten, terms, rules, norms, and jargon of academia. Here is a list H3S compiled about the most misunderstood words for new hydrology students.
Postdoctoral training is a unique opportunity to undertake independent research, expand your research interests, and make significant progress toward your desired career path. In this webinar, we sit down with panelists, including current and former postdocs, to discuss their experience finding a postdoc position, as well as tips on how to be a successful postdoc. This webinar will help all early career researchers better understand where/how to apply for a postdoc as a graduate student and how to excel in the position once you have it.
1-3pm EST hosted by OSU DEI Useful dialog and de-escalation methods for difficult DEI conversationsPractice perspective taking - process of actively replacing judgment of others, clarifying what people mean and understanding reactions in the momentParticipation opportunities: anonymous response system (Mentimeter), role-play in various scenarios
About me: My name is Chao Wang and I am currently a postdoc at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My overall research interests lie within the transdisciplinary research fields of hydrology, land use, and socioeconomics, and how they can be used to understand the broader nature-human system at different spatiotemporal scales. I earned … Continue reading Chao Wang Researcher Feature: Remote Sensing Nature-Human Systems
André Almagro in the field EN: My name is André Almagro and I am an Environmental Engineer in Brazil. At the end of 2021, I earned my Ph.D. in Environmental Sanitation and Water Resources at the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul. My Ph.D. thesis is a deep investigation of the hydrological behavior and … Continue reading André Almagro Researcher Feature: Brazilian Catchment Hydrology
Research and science policy are not two discrete fields; in fact, they are endlessly intertwined. Policy can solve the world's problems with its unique ability to provide the resources to make solutions available for everyone who needs them, while at the same time funding the research that determines these solutions . These two fields cannot … Continue reading Science Policy as an Academic
By Dylan Blaskey Finding jobs after graduation can be even more difficult than finding a PhD position, but there are many helpful resources to ease this process. That is why the members of the H3S committee developed a list of the job boards we use while searching for our academic, industry, and government jobs. Hopefully … Continue reading Hydrology Related Job Boards
Southern Louisiana’s coastal marshes have collapsed over the last century and now the State is working to rebuild them. This land where current coastal wetlands sit was created around 4000 years ago by the prograding Mississippi River delta. Historically, annual floods overtopped the banks of the river and delivered sediment-laden freshwater to the surrounding area. … Continue reading Dylan Blaskey’s Research Showcase: Rebuilding Coastal Marshes Will Impact Native American Communities
