Registration and Abstract Submission are now open for the 8th GEWEX Science Conference, which will be held from 6-11 May 2018 in Canmore, Alberta, Canada.

The 2018 GEWEX Science Conference is structured around the topic of challenges confronting our ability to understand and predict changes in climate extremes and the availability of freshwater under the complex factors of natural variability, forced climate change due to human activities, and human management practices such as dams, reservoirs, land cover changes, and agricultural management.

The Conference will reflect research activities that advance the main themes of the GEWEX project, and the two WCRP Grand Challenges on Weather and Climate Extremes and Water for the Food Baskets of the World.

Please consider submitting an abstract to INARCH’s The Mountain Water Cycle session: the full call for papers is available here.

3rd INARCH Workshop to be held at Schneefernerhaus

Dear INARCH community,

We are happy to invite you to the Third International Network for Alpine Research Catchment Hydrology (INARCH) workshop, which will be held on February 8th and 9th 2018 at the Environmental Research Station Schneefernerhaus on Zugspitze, Germany.

The workshop will address four research themes:

  • Snow Hydrology
  • Glacier Hydrology
  • Alpine Measurements including Remote Sensing
  • Climate Models and Downscaling for Mountains

Each theme will be addressed by a keynote speaker and followed by a moderated discussion. These guided discussions will be supplemented by topical poster sessions with a fast oral introduction to each poster.

Schneefernerhaus is an active research station in a spectacular alpine location. It has overnight accommodation for 51 people, modern meeting rooms and food services. It is anticipated that we will need to share rooms.

The complete program, registration, abstract submission and more detailed information with be available in a few weeks.
