Digital Water Globe Editor-in-Chief

We are pleased to announce the inaugural Editor-in-chief for the Digital Water Globe (DWG): Prof. Eduardo Mario Mendiondo of the University of São Paulo - São Carlos School of Engineering. The DWG is a web-based software platform where IAHS members share Case studies, Personal profiles, IAHS references and links to data repositories. The different items are linked to a geographical position on a global map as well as keywords for quick search using filter functions. The DWG offers co-creation and re-examines the role of scientific outreach by exploring novel digital ways to interact between scientists and society for mutual understanding and co-evolution. Most of all, the DWG will exploit the potential of an innovative digital arena for IAHS-community building, data/knowledge exchange and science communication in action. We invite you to view and contribute to the DWG

Prof. Eduardo Mario Mendiondo

Mario has been an IAHS member since 2005, and during this time he has been part of;

His publications include;

Mario will be supported by six Associate Editors and they are;

Sujata Kulkarni of Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, India

ICCE2024 Final call for papers & registration deadline

Dear colleagues,

This is a final reminder regarding the Symposium of the International Commission on Continental Erosion (ICCE) of the IAHS that we’re proud to host at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, Germany, 24-26 July 2024. The registration deadline is 3 April 2024.

As the anthropogenic alteration of global climate and its specific regional features become more and more evident, the symposium aims to shed light on recent progress and research avenues regarding the sensitivity of erosion and sediment transport to recent climatic and environmental changes. This topic spans multiple compartments of geosystems such as:

  • processes on hillslopes and slope stability
  • fluvial processes, river planform changes and sediment budgets
  • aeolian sediment dynamics.

Consequently, we’re open for contributions related to different environments of the Earth and hope to stimulate discussion and collaboration. As many of the aforementioned processes affect human life, societies and economy, we are interested in both basic and applied research. Your presentation might also show methodological innovations leading to better measurements and understanding of erosion and sediment transport in the past, present and future.

The venue is located in central Bavaria, between Munich and Nuremberg (airports) and can be reached by national and international train connections. Please visit our conference website and consider registering for this international yet familiar event!

We are looking forward to meeting you.

 

ICCE2024 3rd call for papers and extension of registration deadline to 3 April 2024

With apologies for cross-posting, we are sending out the 3rd call for papers for the symposium of the International Commission on Continental Erosion (ICCE) of the IAHS that we’re proud to host at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, Germany, on 24-26 July 2024. As more colleagues have started registering in the last few days, we decided to extend the initial registration deadline to 3 April 2024. Please bear in mind, however, that the deadline for the hotel rooms we have pre-reserved for conference participants (see conference website) cannot be postponed as the meeting will take place during the main summer holiday period in Germany. It is therefore recommended to register and book your stay as soon as possible.

HSJ Digest: latest articles and updates

 

     

Hot off the press - latest HSJ articles and updates 

Hydrological Sciences Journal is the official Journal of IAHS and provides a forum for original papers and for the exchange of information and views on significant developments in hydrology worldwide. It is published by Taylor & Francis and is available online and in print format. Keep abreast of our latest issues here, together with the Co-editors’ choice of featured articles.

"Post-fire hydrologic analysis: A tale of two severities" suggests that a “tactical pause” is required to re-evaluate the concepts of fire/burn severity, with important implications for fire management and post-fire hydrological modelling. The paper highlights the importance of distinguishing between vegetation burn severity and soil burn severity when assessing post-fire hydrologic impacts, highlighting the need for a more nuanced approach. It also discusses the potential synergistic future of remote sensing with in-situ severity metrics, suggesting that combining these data sources could lead to more accurate and reliable predictions. We look forward to initiating a broader discussion on post-fire hydrologic analysis. Your discussion and research papers are welcome! The paper is free to view for six months.

Issue 2 Featured article - imminently free to view for six months

A key new HSJ review paper.
We are delighted to feature the publication of a particularly innovative and somewhat controversial HSJ paper by former Editor-in-Chief Demetris Koutsoyiannis and Christos Vournas. The article, titled “Revisiting the greenhouse effect—a hydrological perspective”, is written in Demetris Koutsoyiannis's signature style, combining humour with a hydrological perspective on a topical issue. The study challenges conventional thinking on the greenhouse effect and offers a new perspective that is sure to stimulate scientific discussion: old formulae for calculating the greenhouse effect are still accurate, the authors claim, even with more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
