Session 7Measurements in the 21st century: innovation in hydrological observations
|Convener: Kelly K. Caylor | Co-Conveners: Rolf Hut , Salvatore Manfreda , M.J. Sandells , Flavia Tauro , C. Neale , Rezanezhad Fereidoun , Dominique Bérod|
The workshop will revolve around environmental monitoring approaches boosted by the use of innovative technologies for the observation of the different compartments of the hydrological cycle. Scientists that build their own instruments or use existing equipment/experimental methodologies in innovative ways are highly encouraged to participate in the workshop and share ideas and solutions with fellow hydrologists. Innovative observational approaches in all realms of hydrology, including surface and subsurface processes, ecohydrology, snow and ice, plant physiology, water quality assessment and management, and remote sensing will be presented through oral, poster, and demonstrative presentations. Contributions will address the key issue of providing accurate and reliable measurements at different spatial and temporal scales, in ungauged sites, and in challenging environments.
