Jeffrey King, PhD, PE, CFM and Sangdon So, PhD (Florida), of ATM, a Geosyntec Company, will participate in the ninth biennial Florida Water Institute Symposium at the University of Florida’s J. Wayne Reitz Union in Gainesville, Florida, on February 20 and 21, 2024. ATM is a sponsor of the symposium.

Jeffrey is a member of the symposium planning committee; will serve as a panelist at a student networking event at Cypress and Grove Brewing Company on February 19 at 6:30 p.m. EST; moderate session 18, “Hydrologic Modeling to Advance Water Management,” on February 20 at 3:30 p.m.; and judge the student poster competition two hours later. Sangdon will present “Island-Wide Flood Hazard Risk Mapping and Assessments in Grand Bahama” on February 21 at 1:50 p.m.

Jeffrey is a Principal Engineer with more than 25 years of experience focused on hydrogeology, hydrology, water resources, and coastal engineering. He is a former research scientist in the United States Geological Survey. Jeffrey models and analyzes watersheds, rivers, wetlands, floodplains, flood hazards, floodways, alluvial fans, lakes, estuaries, oceans, and aquifers to address practical challenges for governments and private clients.

Sangdon is a Professional Scientist who specializes in hydrodynamic, sediment-transport, storm-surge and water-quality modeling; statistical and time-series analyses; and flow and constituent measurements in rivers and estuaries. He leads field experiments measuring and estimating river discharge in rivers and tidally forced estuaries to inform the development and promulgation of minimum flows and levels.

The Florida Water Institute Symposium features more than 275 talks, posters, and panel presentations by professionals from many disciplines and organizations to explore water issues from diverse perspectives and across broad geographical and temporal scales. The symposium addresses critical water issues by focusing on innovative science, technology, art, education, communication, policy, and advances in management and is hosted by the Florida Water Institute and Duke Energy.
