Big Data for Water Resources Management
"Big data as its name implies is unstructured data that is very big, fast, hard and comes in many forms. Though the applications of big data was confined to information technology before 21 st technology, now it is of emerging area in almost all engineering specializations. But for water managers/engineers, big data is showing big promise in many water related applications such as planning optimum water systems, detecting ecosystem changes through big remote sensing and geographical information system, forecasting/predicting/detecting natural and manmade calamities, scheduling irrigations, mitigating environmental pollution, studying climate change impacts etc." (Adamala, 2017)
Big data is used as the proverbial raw material that water researchers and water managers use to derive models, look for trends and train artificial intelligence (AI). It is necessary for making predictive tools about water.

Chapman Conference: Remote Sensing of the Water Cycle
Remote Sensing of the Water: Sensors to Science to Society
In the past decade, there have been unprecedented changes in the fields of sensor technology, satellite missions, modeling and applications to benefit society. Small satellite systems are shifting observational paradigms to more rapid revisits, higher resolutions and ever-increasing volumes of data. The commercial sector has launched hundreds of satellites and companies are now in the business of understanding the water cycle.
8th IAHR Europe Congress in Lisbon
The congress central theme is “Water – Across Boundaries”, covering aquifers, rivers, reservoirs and dams, estuaries, coasts and ports, urban water, hydroinformatics and experimental methods, climate change and risk mitigation and governance and water resources management.
EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference 2023
Over the years, the EUMETSAT user conference has become a key annual event for the meteorological and scientific communities where participants from around the world can meet to share their experience and knowledge during plenary, poster and workshop sessions.
The theme of this year’s annual EUMETSAT conference is “The Evolutionary challenge for EO satellites from technology to exploitation”.
