BHS meeting

Celebrating hydrometry

24 June 2019

Type: Conference / Symposium

This joint CIWEM-BHS national meeting (part of an ongoing series of meetings designed to link researchers, policy makers and practitioners) will provide an excellent opportunity to learn more about the value that hydrometry provides for society, the environment and the economy. It will feature presentations and debate from those responsible for the collection and management of hydrometric data, through to those who use it in studies or in planning, managing and regulating the water environment. 

The meeting will be held at the Instituion of Civil Engineers, London SW1P 3AA and aims to bring together academics, researchers, consultants, hydrologists, environmental managers, policymakers, regulators and other stakeholders. Detailed propgramme to follow soon.

BHS meeting

Natural Flood Management: Does it work?

24 April 2019

Type: National Meeting

Recent years have seen the introduction of a range of landscape interventions to help mitigate the level of flood risk upstream of flood-affected communities by emulating natural phenomena – so called Natural Flood Management (NFM). The strength of evidence for the effectiveness of each type of intervention or group of interventions in the landscape often remains incomplete or debated. With this meeting the British Hydrological Society seeks to present some key findings from previous and ongoing science, and highlight where further research is needed. We encourage participation by researchers, including early career scientists, and those interested in which types of NFM intervention may be most effective at their localities given the uncertainties and risks. We encourage open debate and informal discussions throughout. Speakers include Lydia Burgess-Gamble (Environment Agency), Martin Evans (University of Manchester), Simon Dadson (University of Oxford), Jo Clarke (Reading University), Trev Page (Lancaster University), Megan Klaar (University of Leeds) and Keith Beven (Lancaster University).

Drought and Water Scarcity: addressing current and future challenges

20-21 March 2019

Type: Conference / Symposium

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS Droughts threaten societies, economies and ecosystems worldwide. They are costly natural hazards, feature on global risk registers and are expected to become more severe due to the influence of climate change and pressure on water resources from economic and demographic changes. We are calling for abstracts for spoken and poster presentations on these Themes: Climatology / Impacts / Governance & planning / Community responses / Risk communication Deadline for Abstracts: 31 Dec 2018 Review & Feedback: 15 Jan 2019 More info here: http://aboutdrought.info/conference/ Submit your abstract here: http://aboutdrought.info Poster:  http://aboutdrought.info/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/DroughtConf_Poster_Call.pdf

 

Groundwater 2019

27 March 2019

Type: Conference / Symposium

This annual event offers a balanced mix of practical case studies, new research, and policy updates, combined with interactive Q&A sessions and networking opportunities. Together, these showcase the latest knowledge, tools and techniques to address most pertinent groundwater challenges, see more details at Groundwater 2019

INQUA 2019

25-31 July 2019

Type: Conference / Symposium

The 20th INQUA World Congress - "Life on the Edge" - to be held in the Convention Centre Dublin, aims to bring together all stakeholders, to promote improved communication and international collaboration in experimental and applied aspects of Quaternary research. Quaternary research also provides a direct understanding of geological change including sedimentation and deposition of rock layers and natural energy resources. Applied Quaternary Geology is therefore very relevant for the Mining and Energy sectors, Geotechnology, Water and Hydrogeology, land surveys and planning, and large-scale engineering projects. Further details from www.inqua2019.org.  Please note that the Call for Abstracts and Registration is now open.
