Restoration Monitoring: Geomorphic Change Detection - workshop. You can register for this and you will only have to pay for the tuition for 1 credit (Summer 2011 Semester CRN is: 31558). This will be taught in Park City on May 12 and 13th.
Spring Runoff Conference. We have an exciting line up of speakers and presenters this year and registration is FREE for students. Please register! We will resume lecture and lab on Thursday!
As per the term paper guidelines, there will be an annotated bibliography due next Thursday. The 'annotation' part does not need to be elaborate (a sentence or two or a few bullets explaining how this fits into your review will suffice). This is really just to pace you on your term papers as we move forward, so that you've started reading your literature and digging up sources.
I have finally posted the requirements and deadlines for your term paper here. Tuesday, January 25's guest lecture by Susanne Clement will help you prepare for the first deadline.
The Bates et al. (2005) text we will refer to is now available as an -ebook for free through our library.

A lot of people don't know it, but this year, grooming Green Canyon has been done on a completely voluntary basis, a task which is being organized by Nordic United. Along with grooming Green, NU holds cross-country ski lessons for kids, teaches skating clinics (although maybe not this year), and works on non-motorized public lands issues, including attempting to improve winter parking at trailheads up Logan canyon.
If you use these resources and/or think they sound important, please come to the annual NU fundraiser next Tuesday. Details follow. And if you can't make it Tuesday, but appreciate having Green Canyon groomed, please go to the website and become a member or make a small donation: http://www.nordicunited.org/
I'm also looking for a couple of energetic folks to help me sell raffle tickets at the event. Please let me know if you can help (just show up 15 minutes before the event), and please feel free to pass this message along to other non-motorized winter sports enthusiasts.
Hello Nordic United,
Our annual FUNdraiser is scheduled for Tuesday, 25 January 2011, 6:30pm at The Logan Art House and Cinema at
795 N. Main in Logan. Please see the attached poster.
Admission is only $10 for adults with special deals for members and free for kids under 12.
The highlight of this event is the showing of the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival. For details, see http://www.backcountryfilmfestival.org/bcff/index.php
This event will give you a chance to renew your membership in NU, enjoy some snacks and refreshments, reconnect with friends, learn what NU is doing this year, and see some great films (featuring local talent!)
Thank you for your support. See you at the event.

Subject: [GilbertClub] dramatic video footage of urban flash flooding from 10 Jan 2011
Two days ago there was a dramatic flash flood in Toowoomba (pop 130,000) in the mountains west of Brisbane, Australia. The water came up in about an hour and was in the middle of the day so there is amazing amateur video footage. One of the best is of the rising limb downtown
A good reason not to have car parking next to storm water drains ;-) Not an uncommon problem in urban ares as we had similar problems in Newcastle two years with storm drains, bridges and culverts clogged with cars making the flooding much worse.
