Elaina put together a great poster and presentation for the [2019 Graduate Student Showcase at CSU.](http://gradshow.colostate.edu). The Graduate Student Showcase is a showcase of research, entrepreneurship and creativity during a one-day conference where students present their work and talents, connect with other graduate students and faculty at CSU, and learn about other disciplines and gain conference experience. Elaina presented her ongoing work on developing a decision support tool to evaluate the impact of flow alterations on the Verde River on fish and riparian vegetation habitat.
Congratulations to Matt for being awarded a 2019 GISCO scholarship based on his research examining links between groundwater and riparian vegetation evapotranspiration in the Lower Arkansas River Valley.
The master’s work of Kara Scheel has been published in JAWRA. This was an exciting collaboration with Fernando Nardi and Antonio Annis from the University of Foreigners in Perugia, Italy, in which we applied a hydrogeomorphic floodping mapping model to explore the impacts of levees of floodplain inundation. Congrats to Kara!

This was the first year taking a group of students to AGU, and it was a great experience. Not only were my students blown away by the scale of AGU, but I wasn’t responsible for giving a single presentation. I did, however, co-convene a session on socio-hydrologic resiliency, which was a great networking experience. Below are some of the highlights from this year’s trip.
