UNESCO-IHE Hydroinformatics Program Kicks Off at USF in Tampa

Water management professionals from around the world--engineers, researchers, and resource managers--are beginning a two-week study of Florida with a visit to Tampa Bay. The water course is a collaboration among USF, Florida Earth Foundation and other water partners. Led by Daniel Yeh, assistant professor in the College of Engineering and USF's primary liaison with UNESCO-IHE, the group is learning about the USF Marine Science program's capabilities in remote sensing and water monitoring in Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, the Tampa Bay Estuary Program's ongoing efforts to protect Tampa Bay, the City of Largo's reclamation facility, and is receiving presentations from the Southwest Florida Water Management District and Tampa Bay Water.
