Chunmiao Zheng, President of the International Commission on Groundwater (ICGW), was named as the recipient of two prestiious awards during the summer: the O.E .Meinzer Award of the Geological Society of America, and the M. King Hubbert Award of the National Ground Water Association.

Congratulations to Chunmiao

IAHS, with UNESCO and WMO, establishes the Dooge and Volker medals under the International Hydrology Prize

As of 2014, two medals will be awarded under the International Hydrology Prize: the Dooge medal and the Volker medal. Both medals are intended to distinguish outstanding achievements by hydrological scientists, but with a different focus. The Dooge medal is aimed at fundamental contributions to the science of hydrology, whereas the Volker medal is aimed at outstanding applications of hydrological science for the benefit of society at large.

How to become a successful scientist: pros and cons of research career pathways

Report from the IAHS Early Career Hydrological Scientist meeting, Gothenburg, July 2013

The IAHS Early Career Hydrological Scientist meeting organized at the IAHS-IAPSO-IASPEI Joint Assembly in Gothenburg aimed to support networking among early career hydrological scientists and to encourage the involvement of young scientists in future IAHS activities. It was a success, attended by more than 50 young scientists.

How can models help to solve water quality problems?

How can models help to solve water quality problems was the focus of workshop HW13, which included a round-table discussion, organised at Gothenburg by ICWQ and ICSW. During the first two sessions the keynote lecture and papers presented by authors from UK, Finland, Estonia, Brazil, Sweden, South Africa, Poland and Germany provided useful, interesting information on application of water quality models for solving real water quality problems in different countries and regions, as did the poster session. The third session was devoted to the round-table discussion; two suggested questions were discussed in two groups, who then presented their responses to the whole audience.

Characterising water quantity and quality: new approaches and future directions

The Gothenburg HW03 workshop contained three keynote presentations focusing on surface water quality and groundwater techniques, and looking to the future. The first keynote by Arthur Horowitz (US Geological Survey) challenged many of the practices within monitoring dissolved and particulate water quality parameters and gave the audience plenty to think about in their past and future activities.  (If readers want to find out more, Art’s presentation is based on his review paper in Environmental Science and Technology (2013) 47, 2471-2486)). Jim Butler et al.’s keynote gave an overview of new and enhanced tools for hydrogeological characterisation, such as for rapid assessment of subsurface hydraulic properties to depths of 30 m.

Cold- and mountain region hydrological systems

Cold- and mountain region hydrological systems under climate change: towards improved projections

Gothenburg symposium H02 was organized by the International Commission for Snow and Ice Hydrology (ICSIH) together with the International Commission on the Coupled Land-Atmosphere System (ICCLAS). It addressed major issues both in modelling cold- and mountain regions hydrological processes and in adapting these models to changing climatic conditions.

Deltas: Landforms, Ecosystems and Human Activity

Gothenburg symposium HP1, focused on deltas, was very successful, comprising 7 invited keynote papers, 15 full papers and 6 poster papers. The set of papers within the published volume (IAHS Publ. 358) provides overviews on delta processes and covers almost all types of delta environments, mostly marine, but also inland deltas.
