Conference on Modelling Hydrology, Climate and Land Surface Processes

14–16 September 2010, Lillehammer • Organized by the Norwegian IHP Committee and the Norsk hydrologiråd. The integration of hydrology and meteorology is crucial for understanding the future climate and its effects on the infrastructure of society. From recent discussion in Norway we see topics like extreme weather, landslides and new demands for renewable energy which are all strongly linked to the hydro-meteorological system.

The Norwegian Hydrological Council recognizes the need to bring together hydrologists and meteorologists to discuss the integration of meteorology and hydrology in climate simulations, and how results from downscaled climate projections can be used in hydrological analysis.

The conference aims on addressing both topics related to modelling the climate system and the interface with the land surface processes and hydrological impacts of changed climate.
