5th International Workshop on Catchment Hydrological Modelling and Data Assimilation (CAHMDA)
Catchments in a changing climate
The 5th International Workshop on Catchment Hydrological Modelling and Data Assimilation (CAHMDA-V) is a follow-up to the successful CAHMDA-I workshop held in Wageningen (2001), CAHMDA-II workshop held in Princeton (2004), CAHMDA-III workshop held in Melbourne (2008), and the CAHMDA-IV workshop held in Lhasa (2010).
The objective of the workshop is to assess recent advances in modelling, observing, and data assimilation approaches to improve understanding, observing and predicting hydrological processes and catchment evolutions. Particular attention will be given to the quantification and attribution of climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptations in river basins. New observing systems and new theories and the use of data assimilation are probed in setting the research agenda in hydrological researches for the coming decade. Invited key notes, short poster presentations and extensive discussions will be main forms of the workshop. Pre-workshop data assimilation training course and post-workshop excursions will be organized.
The workshop will consist of six sessions. Each Session will include 2 presentations by keynote speakers, followed by the poster presentations within that session. A short description of the session topic and the chair is listed below. For more information on the respective topics, please click here.
|1||New Observation Systems: using data assimilation to understand model uncertainty||J. Walker|
|2||Models and Reality: using data assimilation to understand the evolution of catchments||P. Troch|
|3||Climate Change Impacts: detecting changes in cold/arid and high elevation catchments/regions||X. Li|
|4||Causes of Hydrological Changes: attributing climate and land use change impacts in water cycle components at catchment scale||E. Wood|
|5||Physics, Parameterisations and Parameters: testing model structure and process representation and inferring parameters using data assimilation||W. Crow|
|6||New Hydrological Theories: the role of data assimilation in formulating new hydrological theories||M.Bierkens|
In addition to the keynote presentations a session will consist of 30 poster presentations by the participants. Each poster presenter will be given 1 minute to introduce his/her poster to the audience. A peer-reviewing process is employed to select the submitted abstract (for more information on this selection procedure please click here). During the poster presentations the posters will be evaluated by the speakers, scientific advisory comittee and the organising comittee. The best poster of each session will be awarded.
We look forward to welcoming you to Enschede!
