Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted. For more information, please see www.doi.gov/shutdown
Technicians Keep Abreast of New Techniques and Technologies
This week a significant number of the Oregon Water Science Center staff will travel to Camp Rilea to learn or refresh their hydrological skills.
Technology will always continue to evolve, therefore our scientists need to need continue their education and become skilled in the newest and best equipment. Although there are numerous training options available, this year a large number of our staff will be heading out to Camp Rilea, OR, to participate in a weeklong workshop entitled, "Training for Advancement in Hydrologic Data Processing and Technical Field Skills." This is a great opportunity for new employees to learn the appropriate techniques and legacy values of the USGS, while more seasoned technicians can update their skills to meet today’s newest tools and resources.
Announcing the ORWSC's "Training for Advancement in Hydrologic Data Processing and Technical Field Skills" from Monday, April 30, 2018 to Thursday, May 3, 2018, at Camp Rilea, Oregon.
