Life

We are exploring Brunswick, taking walks in our neighbourhood, trying out cafes and restaurants. My parents in law visited. They brought us a bicycle, which makes my commute to work much more convenient. Then, my parents visited. We went to the botanical garden.

International affairs

Adrián Navas got his visit in our group approved by his university. He will come in January 2023 and we will work together on hyperbolic relaxation approaches for ecohydrology. Looking forward to this.

The Erasmus+ agreement with the Computational Hydraulics Group at Universidad de Zaragoza is taking shape. We are planning to exchange bachelor and master students, PhDs, and lecturers.

Publish or perish

We are currently working on Rachel's paper on flux rescaling at idealised hillslopes. I have some cool ideas on how to analyse the results.

Submitted a revised version of the paper on surface-subsurface interactions in the Lower Triangle, East River Watershed, Colorado, USA, to Scientific Reports. Hope this one will get more favorable reviews.

Talking is silver

My group will do an appearance at our university's studium generale, talking about our course on Urban Ecohydrology.

Together with Conrad Jackisch, Ralf Loritz, and Daniel Caviedes-Voulliéme, we proposed a session on hacking hydrology at the EGU 2023. The session aims to address the emerging challenges in bringing together advances in computational and field hydrology in operational models. It's a really interesting topic, so I hope the it gets accepted.

Rachel submitted an abstract to the IAHR Young Professionals Congress to present her work from her internship, where she investigated the hydrological connectivity at a real hillslope in Colorado, USA.

Reading for pleasure

Not much time for reading this month. But we got a library card.

Premeditated Myrtle

I've read Premeditated Myrtle by Elizabeth C. Bunce. It's a young adult mystery novel with a 12 year old protagonist who is investigating the murder of her neighbour. Feels similar to Enola Holmes. Entertaining read.

Elizabeth C. Bunce, Premeditated Myrtle, Algonquin Young Readers, NC, USA, 2020.

Die Verwandlung

Anna and I are reading Die Verwandlung (The Metamorphosis) by Franz Kafka. I used to be a big fan of Kafka, I've read almost everything from him. Die Verwandlung never was my favorite story, but re-reading it made me realise how humorous it is.

Franz Kafka, Die Verwandlung. In: Die Weißen Blätter. Eine Monatsschrift. René Schickele. Jg. (ed), 2(10), 1177–1230, 1915.
