BOOST H2O (Helping Hydrologic Outreach) in Indonesia and Turkey

Grants and Contracts Details


We propose to integrate technical instruction and preparation for professional practice in hydrology for graduate students from Indonesia and Turkey. We will accomplish this through scientific exchanges (attendance at a workshop in the USA; visits by U.S. partners, the students, and their advisors to field sites in Indonesia and Turkey), distance coursework, and presentations at a major scientific conference in the USA. Students will become proficient in using software for GIS, remote sensing, and mathematical modeling with Web-based data sets, which will augment local-scale field studies. Students will receive guidance in research ethics; in presenting results to technical audiences and the general public, including government agencies, NGOs, secondary schools, and local communities; and in preparing research proposals and publications. Expected results include strengthening the students' communication skills, especially in English; increasing young researchers' capacity to connect with the regional and global scientific communities in their areas of specialization; and positioning them to contribute as professionals in academia, industry, and/or government.
