    As a result the hydrologic models used for decision support are severely data limited This requires improved methods to identify the optimal set of observations to collect and to use model predictions to support robust decision making under considerable uncertainty Dr Ferre s Darcy Lecture focuses on the use of models and data to support improved decision making He will make the case that most of our established approaches do not provide the information needed to make robust decisions under uncertainty Rather we need to change our perspective on the use of models changing our focus to identify threats and opportunities and that we should choose to collect data that tests these important outcomes Fortunately we have the tools that we need and we can implement them for real world problems the only challenge is to change the way we think about the relationship between data models and decision making SPEAKER BIO Dr Ty Ferre is a professor in the Department of Hydrology and Water Resources at the University of Arizona His research has focused on the movement of water solutes and heat through the vadose zone processes and on the use of geophysical methods to monitor subsurface hydrologic processes IMPORTANT BRANCH NEWS Scholastic Sponsorship Program The Southern California Branch continues its ongoing scholastic sponsorship program with local sponsors supporting our annual scholarship fund for students who are engaged in groundwater studies If your organization is interested in participating as a sponsor for a future event please contact a Branch Officer SPECIAL LOCATION Orange County Water District 18700 Ward Street Fountain Valley CA 92708 714 378 3200 AGENDA 5 30 PM to 6 30 PM Registration and Water Education Center Viewing 6 30 PM to 7 30 PM Dinner and Announcements 7 30 PM to 8 30 PM Keynote Speaker
