Hydrological and land-surface modelling science meeting.

About this Event

We invite you to attend this one-day science meeting on the topic of Next Generation Land-surface and Hydrological Predictions. This event is the annual meeting of the UK Natural Environment Research Council’s Hydro-JULES Programme (www.hydrojules.org), which is designed to bring together the hydrological (surface and subsurface) and land-surface modelling community - in the UK and beyond - to tackle together the challenges at the forefront of these two important fields.

The aim of the meeting is to facilitate collaborations that will share knowledge, advance existing research, stimulate new research areas, and enable new relationships to be built in the following environmental research fields:

  • quantification of hydro-meteorological risks,
  • using high-resolution climate predictions for hydrological applications,
  • calculation the impacts of environmental change on evaporation, transpiration, and soil moisture,
  • modelling flood inundation over large areas,
  • large-scale groundwater flow, heat and solute transport modelling
  • representing anthropogenic interventions in the water cycle, and
  • application of new techniques including Earth observation and data assimilation.

The meeting will include an update on the Hydro-JULES research programme, alongside invited keynote lectures by:

  • Prof. Martyn Clark, Associate Director, Centre for Hydrology, University of Saskatchewan, Canmore, Canada.
  • Prof. Dai Yamazaki, Institute of Industrial Science, The University of Tokyo.

This event is supported by the NERC Hydro-JULES programme which will build a three-dimensional, open source, community model of the terrestrial water cycle to support and enable collaborative work across the research and academic communities in hydrology and land-surface science. The meeting will provide a series of updates on the Hydro-JULES modelling programme. Participation in the event will be open to everyone (it is not necessary to be in receipt of NERC funding), subject to review of applications by the programme committee.

Please be aware that parts of this session will be recorded.

Full programme subject to confirmation early July 2019.
