Deltas in Times of Climate Change

29 September–1 October 2010, Rotterdam • Deltas in Times of Climate Change
Deltas have a lot to offer. They are close to the sea and inland waterways. Their soils are fertile. They are therefore the base of many large and fast growing cities. But as populations grow, deltas and their cities are becoming more vulnerable. Floods, land subsidence, traffic congestion, air pollution and salt intrusion loom up as common threats. Climate change aggravates these problems.

Water on Planet Mars: Follow the Flow

5–16 July 2010, Utrecht • Planet Mars has water ice near its surface, and dry rivers, deltas and gigantic canyons attest to past water flow on the surface. But how much water did flow on Mars? What was the past climate, and how long was the planet wet? Was there ever life on Mars and could we live there in the future?

Advances in Flood Forecasting and Risk Management

25–26 May 2010, Alkmaar • International Workshop on Advances in Flood Forecasting and the Implications for Risk Management.
Recent developments in flood forecasting allow for better quantification of uncertainties that come with flood forecasting modelling.

Workshop on water and climate change: how to develop an adaptation strategy in transboundary basins

10–11 May 2010, Geneva • The workshop will bring together countries and main international actors engaged in activities on water and adaptation to climate change, in particular in transboundary basins. It aims to exchange practical experience and share lessons-learned on the technical and strategic aspects of adapting to climate change, and analyse the specific challenges of adapting water management to climate change in the transboundary context.

The International Classification for Seasonal Snow on the Ground

Snow research is an interdisciplinary field, as reflected in variety of books dedicated to snow and its various aspects. Such a wide range of interest and knowledge in snow makes common descriptions of snow as well as common measurement practices very desirable. The classification deals primarily with seasonal snow, even though many concepts in the present snow classification can also be applied to firn, which is the first stage in the formation of glacier ice.

The March 2010 Newsletter (96) of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) is now available for download. The IAHS newsletter is now published in electronic form only.

Whirlpool Politics: Water as a Global Challenge

11–17 April 2010, Leiden • The Institute of Political Science at Leiden University (NL) will host an international conference in the field of political science. During the Academic Conference students will explore this year’s theme, Whirlpool Politics: Water as a Global Challenge.

Water quality reader by UNW-DPAC

A reader on water quality issues has been published by the United Nations Office to Support the International Decade for Action ‘Water for Life’ 2005–2015, which implements the UN-Water Decade Programme on Advocacy and Communication (UNW-DPAC).

Isotopes and tracers in hydrology: report online

The report of the symposium in Amsterdam, 5 November 2009, on the use of isotopes and tracers in hydrology, combined with the 2009 Henry Darcy Lecture, is now available.

Transboundary flood risk management: experiences from the UNECE region

The study describes problems and progress made regarding transboundary flood management in 10 transboundary river basins in the UNECE region; tools for managing transboundary flood risk, for joint flood forecasting, flood warning and exchange of data, joint flood risk management planning and implementation; and useful legal and institutional arrangements for cooperation.
