URSULA Conference 2011 Posted: 06/12/2011

The last of the URSULA conferences held in November provided forum for the presentation of a wealth of research conducted during the URSULA project. Topics included how the River Don affects Sheffiled\'s microclimate, how the river could be harnessed to deliver hydropower, the effect of weirs in river ecology, the effect of biodiversity on wellbeing, as well as the approach developed in URSULA to design sustainable urban river corridors. We also had some great presentations from invited speakers, including Simon Ogden from Sheffield City Council, and Matt Kondolf from University California, Berkeley.

Many of presentations are available as pdfs on here on the URSULA website
