On the 10th and 11th of July 2023, the final symposium for the scientific decade “Panta Rhei – Everything Flows: Change in Hydrology and Society” of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) took place at the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) in Potsdam.  During these two days, 150 hydrologists, engineers, social scientists and practitioners from 32 countries gathere ...[Read More]

Organizing a Workshop as an ECS: Lessons learned from “Cryosphere-groundwater interactions: a missing link in mountain water research”

Plenary discussion on the outcomes of one of the group discussions on “where does the water go in the glacierized landscape”?

Despite the importance of mountains for downstream water supply, there are large gaps in our scientific understanding of how snow and ice meltwater travels through the landscape, specifically which flowpaths meltwater takes below the surface. Plus, existing knowledge is scattered throughout various sub-disciplines of mountain hydrology: glaciology, snow science, hydrogeology, and surface hydrology ...[Read More]
