SFWMD officials visit to TREC and C-111 project sites

Mrs Pamela Lehr and Dr. Wossenu Abtew from the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) visited the Tropical and Research and Education Center (TREC) and monitoring sites of the C-111 project that is funded by SFWMD. The activities included a seminar by Dr. Abtew titled; “El Niño Southern Oscillation Link to South Florida Hydrology and Water Management”, lunch at a local Thai restaurant and visits to all six C-111 project groundwater and soil water monitoring stations. We enjoyed having the SFWMD officials over and below are some pictures:

  1. Excellent post, Isaya! I hope they were impressed with the effort out there. Also, I take it back about the Kodak, not too shabby for low-light shots!

  2. This was a very good visit and hopefully gave SFWMD a better idea of our project. Dr. Abtew (who is known by many for the Abtew ET equation in Florida) gave an excellent seminar. He is also publishing an ET book soon - should be a good read!
