Water and Environmental Dynamics

Ecology, hydrology, morphology and biology set the scene for processes that interlink our societies with their environments. Climate change, population dynamics and changing socioeconomic conditions require integrated management solutions which must be based on scientific analysis of environmental dynamics. Sector oriented approaches are insufficient with regard to the dynamic interaction of all sectors. Water and Environmental Dynamics addresses the main disciplines, processes and methods that are prerequisite for understanding and sustainably managing aquatic systems. It aims at bringing together experts from different disciplines and countries to exchange ideas and foster scientific cooperation with the aim to provide better solutions for water systems.

Within the scope of the conference, numerous sessions convened by well-know experts will allow discussing these topics.
