Madden was selected by the Water Power Technologies Office (WPTO) and will work in the WPTO, Washington DC after her graduation. She assessed the economic benefits from the largest 228 dams in Alabama through independent projects in my Hydrology courses (CE575: Hydrology and CE591: Computational Hydrology). Her project was presented as a poster in the UA Water Policy Summit last spring. Congratulations, Madden!

Dr. Kam presented his recent work on the dynamics of social response to the 2011-17 California Drought during the 99th AMS Annual Meeting.
Dr. Kam gave an oral presentation during the 99th AMS Annual Meeting in Phoenix, AZ on January 10, 2019. This representation is based on his recent work on "Monitoring of Drought Awareness from Google Trends: A Case Study of the 2011-17 California Drought" (under review in the AMS journal Weather, Climate and Society). This study informs the value of social monitoring data (herein, Google Trends data) in understanding the dynamics of social response to different stages of the drought. This study is done through collaboration with Dr. Kimberly Stowers (Department of Management, U of Alabama) and his PhD student, Sungyoon Kim.
Prof. Justin Sheffield (U of Southampton) gave the 2019 Horton Lecture, entitled "Integrated Approaches for Drought Monitoring and Early Warning in Data Scarce Regions." His presentation is available at the following link (https://ams.confex.com/ams/2019Annual/meetingapp.cgi/Paper/355753).
During the AMS Award Banquet, Dr. Kam was invited as Dr. Sheffield's guest and sat on the table with Drs. Christopher S. Bretherton (U of Washington), Jennifer Collins (U of South Florida) and Chris Davis (NCAR) and their guest. Dr. Kam read Dr. Bretherton's paper, "An Intercomparison of Methods for Finding Coupled Patterns in Climate Data" during Dr. Eric Wood's stochastic hydrology class in Princeton. It was my honor to be with them during the AMS award Banquet.
