Call for Papers for INARCH Session at 2018 GEWEX Science Conference in Canmore

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.

Update on INARCH special issue in Earth System Science Data

The INARCH special issue in Earth System Science Data now has six submissions, but the journal would ideally like to see as many again before it is published.

To this end, the deadline has been extended to 6th April 2018.

More details relating to the special issue, and also about the manuscripts submitted so far, 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.

Masaki Hayashi to give Darcy Lectures on Mountain Groundwater

Each year, the U.S. National Ground Water Association (NGWA) selects a groundwater scientist to tour the world as the Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecturer.

The NGWA has recently announced that in 2018 this prestigious post will be filled by INARCH member Professor Masaki Hayashi, of the University of Calgary, who will focus on groundwater in alpine environments.

If you would be interested in hosting a Darcy Lecture at your university or research institute, please submit a request form to NGWA using the link above.
