AOGS2021 - Selected HS Sessions


Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS) was established in 2003 to promote geosciences and its application for the benefit of humanity, specifically in Asia and Oceania and with an overarching approach to global issues. 

AOGS2021 (AOGS 18th Annual Meeting) will be a hybrid virtual & in-person presentation experience during 01-06 August 2021.


HS03: "Artificial Intelligence for Model and Data Integration in Hydrology"


Dr. Haiyun Shi

Prof. Yi Zheng

Dr. Chaopeng Shen

Dr. Suning Liu

The potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in analyzing, modeling and forecasting complex hydrological processes has been clearly demonstrated during the past few years, as the number of applications grow substantially each year. Moreover, there is an increasing amount of large datasets for researchers to solve existing problems at improved accuracy, or new problems that were inaccessible before. However, such study brings its own challenges. This session seeks to bridge the gap between AI researchers and hydrologists, and address some of the associated issues: 1) recent AI advances contributed to model and data integration; 2) promising use cases of AI in hydrologic model-data integration; 3) the next generation of applications in hydrology. We particularly welcome contributions that may address the supplementary and complementary role of process-based models and machine learning with respect to the others and also their integration.


HS10: "Exploration of Atmospheric Water Resources"


Dr. Haiyun Shi

Prof. Ji Chen

Prof. Bellie Sivakumar

Water resources management has witnessed an enormous progress during the past few decades. However, there still remain numerous challenges in enhancing societies’ capabilities in the utilization of both traditional and non-traditional water resources. With the projected population growth and significant changes in global climate, future water availability and management would become an even more critical factor for socioeconomic development. As traditional water resources have already been over-exploited in quantity and degraded in quality in many regions around the world, there is indeed an urgent need to consider non-traditional water resources, such as atmospheric water resources. However, studying atmospheric (and other non-traditional) water resources brings its own challenges. Some of the issues associated with the study of atmospheric water resources are: (1) temporal and spatial evolution of atmospheric water resources based on multi-source data; (2) variation features of atmospheric water resources at different atmospheric levels; (3) physical mechanisms, effectiveness and development of potential of atmospheric water resources utilization; and (4) key technologies of atmospheric water resources utilization. This session aims to discuss these issues. We particularly welcome contributions that address the supplementary and complementary role of each of these issues with respect to the others and also their integration.
