Welcome to the technical sessions schedule for the 2015 Annual Fall NEARC Conference. 

NEW THIS YEAR!
 The technical schedule is capable of being sorted by date (i.e, Monday, Nov. 9) or track (i.e. USGS Hydro). You can also search for a presentation title (i.e. Harmonizing the NHD and WBD Datasets in Maine), key term (i.e. NHD), or presenter last name (i.e. O’Neil-Dunne). The sort and search functions can be found on the navigation panel on the right side of this page. If you hover over the "Schedule" button, you’ll also see different schedule view options (i.e. Grid or Simple). Try selecting each of them to see which view you prefer. 

MY SCHEDULE FEATURE: It is not required of you to create a Sched.org account to use this site but if you do so, you’ll be able to use the "My Schedule" feature which allows you to create your own schedule for the conference. Click the "Sign Up" button in the top right corner of this page to create a Sched.org account.

The National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) is the surface water component of the National Map, a product of the United States Geological Survey (USGS). It contains features such as watersheds, lakes, ponds, reservoirs, marshes, streams, rivers, canals, dams, stream gauges, as well as other features stored in a GIS. The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) is the official data steward of the NHD for Connecticut and worked with UConn, Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) to update the dataset with funding from both USGS and CT DEEP. This talk will cover what the NHD is and how it can be used currently; it will describe specific updates that were made within Connecticut’s watersheds and also provide some insight for future updates and improvements of the NHD.
