Featured Catchment: The Weierbach – Yet another temperate forested headwater?

Slate bedrock, an often overlooked system At first sight, the Weierbach catchment may seem unspectacular. It is indeed a small (42 ha) forested headwater catchment, located at mid-latitude in a low mountain range (450-500 m a.s.l.). However, when you take a closer look, and particularly below the surface, the Weierbach is a truly exciting eco-hydrological system. Located in the Luxembourgish Arden ...[Read More]

On modelers and modeling

Several studies were conducted and are ongoing where we investigate modelers, modeling decisions and modeling perceptions. Below I discuss the rationale and a summary of the (preliminary) results. Simulation models, conceptualizations of processes into a system of mathematical equations (hereafter simply referred to as models), are frequently used tools in the hydrological sciences. The literature ...[Read More]

Sharing is caring: Models for all, presenting eWaterCycle II

The photos above were found by doing a google image search for ‘hydrologist’. Apparently our image is that of scientists that get to be outside a lot. We all know that the knowledge we gain from fieldwork gets codified in hydrological models which can be written in all sort of programming languages. “I wonder what this analysis would look like using that other groups hydrological model ...[Read More]

Meeting and networking outside the EGU GA: feedback on the 2019 EGU Leonardo conference

In order to encourage cohesion and sustained dialogue among researchers outside the GA in Vienna, the EGU hosts a number of conference series, targeted at a specific disciplinary or interdisciplinary group within the Union. Closely related to the HS Division is the Leonardo Conference series on Earth’s Hydrological Cycle. These meetings are organized by members of the division. They usually ...[Read More]
