CALJET Workshop
June 8 - June 10, 1998
Boulder, Colorado

Synopsis: As part of the transition from the field phase of the CALJET experiment to the analysis phase, a workshop is being convened to bring together participants from the field program as well as other interested people. In addition to those who participated directly in CALJET or NORPEX, several forecasters and hydrologists from California will summarize their experiences this winter, and experts on the relationship between El Nino and California precipitation will present some thoughts on that important issue.

The goals of the workshop are to:
* summarize the field phase,
* assess status of data editing, archival, and exchange, and
* map out research interests and opportunities.


Start Date: Monday,  8 June 1998 at 1 p.m.
End Date: Wednesday, 10 June 1998 at 12:00 p.m.
Location: Regal Harvest House Hotel, 1345 28th St., Boulder, CO
Lodging: The Regal Harvest House is providing a limited number of rooms for CALJET Workshop attendees at the allowable Govt. per diem rate of $92 (including tax), well below the going rate for a nice hotel in Boulder at this time of year.
To reserve rooms at the Regal Harvest House participants will need to call either (303)443-3850 or (800)545-6285, ask for reservations and indicate they will be with the "CALJET Workshop".
The $92/night rate does include tax and is available only for the nights of June 8, 9, and 10.  If anyone would want to stay either Sunday or Thursday the rate would be higher.   The DEADLINE for this reduced rate is Friday May 22nd-make your reservations now.
Transportation: Transportation to and from the airport and hotel is available from the "Airporter," (303-444-0808) which leaves DIA every hour on the hour (8AM-11PM).  They are located at baggage level 5, across from Hertz, and no reservations are needed.  It takes about 1 h 15 min to the Harvest House, and costs $14.  A rental car is not really needed in Boulder.
