Many of the global challenges facing us in the 21st Century relate to water and hydrology e.g. flooding of cities, supplying developing countries with safe water. However, the role of hydrologists in solving these issues has never been more uncertain.
The traditions of Engineering Hydrology, focussing on the Physics of water movement and Hydrological Processes have been diluted as the discipline has expanded into other topics such as Eco-hydrology and Socio-hydrology.
This meeting will bring together both academics that are responsible for teaching the next generation of hydrologists and industry who manage hydrological issues on a daily basis.
The meeting is intended to take a debate format, through which we can identify the needs and priorities for Hydrology and the BHS in the 21st Century.
Invited speakers include; Thorsten Wagener (Bristol), Chris Kilsby (Newcastle), Duncan Faulkner (JBA Consulting), representative from CEH, Environment Agency and UK Water Industry.
