The hydrological cycle.

About this event

On Thursday 4 May we will be conducting field visits in the area surrounding CEH. There will be talks and a tour over at HR Wallingford. HR Wallingford is an independent civil engineering and environmental hydraulics organisation who deliver practical solutions to complex water-related challenges faced by their international clients.

Their facilities include state-of-the-art physical modelling laboratories which include: wave basins, a hydraulic structure and river floodplain modelling area and specialist facilities for tsunami generation, to name just a few. There will also be a talk and demonstration of the ADCP ARC-Boat, by Nick Everard (Environment Agency) down on the River Thames.

The ARC-Boat represents a huge advancement of hydrological technology allowing a quicker, safer, and more efficient method to taking river gauging's and carrying out mapping.
