I am fresh from an excellent day at the College of Charleston for ISSRM2015, if such a term can be used for how one feels after another day of high heat and humidity. I’m one of those people who often interrupts presentations, but it’s just because I’m so keen to maximize my time at conferences and have very broad interests. Today, however, I actually stayed in the same room for two whole sessions, one on ecosystem services, and one on traditional ecological knowledge, where Razak Abu’s nuanced talk on indigenous observations of post-dam hydro-ecological change in Saskatchewan really impressed. Then I began a scattershot campaign through the last afternoon session, dipping in on methods sessions: Q-method in Poland, Bayesian Decision Networks in the US, and PPGIS for Marine Spatial Planning in Denmark. The Student Quiz Bowl followed, happily chaotic, where the Jeopardy-style competition was won in a suspicious come-from-behind by Penn State. Finally, a lovely shrimp boil lawn party with classic rock. Tomorrow is the last day of conferencing before the Energy team meeting begins again. Am looking forward to getting back to the coastal breeze at Folly Beach.
