Themes and Topics

Conference themes

The conference is structured into the following themes:

Theme A1
How can we identify and quantify water-related changes due to direct human interventions

(analysis of long-time past records, future developments)

Theme A2
How can we identify and quantify water-related changes due to climate change

(analysis of long-time past records, future developments)

Theme B
How can we discriminate among impacts of direct human interventions and impacts caused by climate change, and how can we quantify the impacts

Theme C
How can we quantify/ prognose/ predict changes in water-related hazards

Theme D
How can we adapt to / mitigate water-related hazards; resilient and robust ways to adapt to water-related disasters

Session S
Special Session on Uncertainty in Predicting the Impacts of Catchment Change and its Implications for Decision Making

Session S: Special Session on Uncertainty in Predicting the Impacts of Catchment Change and its Implications for Decision Making

The special session will aim to:
a. provide an opportunity for the discussion of the importance of different sources of uncertainty in predicting impacts of catchment change;

b. provide an opportunity for the discussion of methodologies for handling epistemic uncertainties in assessing catchment change;

c. provide an opportunity for reports on case studies of uncertainty in the impacts of catchment change on water quantity and quality;

d. provide an opportunity for sharing good practice in decision making about catchment change in the face of future uncertainties.

The Special Session will be convened by Prof. Keith Beven (Lancaster University, UK), Dr Sárka Blazková (T.G. Masaryk Water Research Institute, Prague, Czech Republic), Prof. Phil Haygarth (Lancaster University, UK) and Prof. Enda O'Connell (Newcastle University, UK).
