It is with great sadness that IAHS ICCE announce the death of Art Horowitz (USGS emeritus) after a short illness on February 26th 2021. Art was a pioneer in environmental sediment chemistry and was admired and respected greatly by his colleagues and the international sediment research community more generally for his intellect and leadership in advancing knowledge of contaminant transport in river systems. An obituary will follow soon from IAHS ICCE.

Commission on Continental Erosion of the International Hydrological Association (ICCE - IAHS) together with Lomonosov Moscow State University is arranging online seminar series by leading World experts on pollutant and sediment mobility

The School for Young Scientists "Pollutant and sediment mobility in river systems: monitoring studies to identify human impacts" will be held online on November 25-27, 2020. Everyone can join the broadcast and learn about environmental and human impacts on river channels and waters quality from various continents and river systems.

The program of the School: lectures by scientists - leading experts from Russia, USA, Germany, Great Britain, France, Belgium, Netherlands and Brazil on the problems of sediment and water quality and geochemistry of river systems:
The working language of the School is English.

The participation is free of charge based upon registration which should be done until November 24, 2020: https://megapolis2020.ru/. A link to the broadcast (zoom and youtube interface) will be sent to registered participants.


After consideration of situation related to Covid-19, we have made the decision to postpone IAHS/ICCE International Symposium River sediment quality and quantity: environmental, geochemical, and ecological perspectives to 2022.  The exact dates will be announced in 2021. The place is supposed to be the same same as planned - Bydgoszcz, Poland . Additional info at
