Aquatic Informatics is committed to science.
We actively participate in the scientific and technical advancement of hydrology and environmental sciences through technical associations and working groups.
ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world’s largest developer and publisher of International Standards. ISO is a network of the national standards institutes of 162 countries, one member per country, with a Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland, that coordinates the system. www.iso.org
The ICWP is the national water policy organization that represents non-federal water agencies who have responsibility for water planning and management, and we insist that America’s water science be sufficient to inform our water resource planning deliberation (for floods, droughts, spills, climate change, etc.) among the American communities and in public. www.icwp.org
The National Hydrologic Warning Council (NHWC), with membership across the United States and around the world, is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting emergency and environmental management officials by providing expert advice on the use of real-time, high quality hydrologic information from automated remote data systems, with the goals of protecting lives, property, and the environment. www.hydrologicwarning.org
CUAHSI enables the university water science community to advance understanding of the central role of water to life, Earth, and society. CUAHSI focuses on water from bedrock to atmosphere, from summit to sea and from the geologic past, through the present and into the future. www.cuahsi.org
The aim of the North American Stream Hydrographers (NASH) is to bring researchers and practitioners together into a community of practice for advancing the science of stream hydrography. We exist at arm’s length from the day-to-day pressures facing monitoring agencies, and advocate the development and sharing of best practices, informed by a long-range perspective of desired outcomes for hydrometric data. http://hydrographers.wikispaces.com/
The CGU began as a society dedicated to the scientific study of the solid earth and has evolved into one that is concerned with all aspects of the physical study of Earth and its space environment, including the Sun and solar system. To express this broader vision of the geophysical sciences, the Union has adopted a sectional structure that allows individual sections to function as semi-autonomous entities. www.cgu-ugc.ca
SAAM (Subcommittee for Automated Water Monitoring) is a subcommittee of the CWRA focused on issues associated with automated aquatic monitoring. Committee members included a cross section from the water industry, including professionals from the private and public sectors, hardware and software vendors, and academics. www.cwra.org
