Water Cycle in a 1.5°C warmer world: interdisciplinary approaches
AGU Fall Meeting 2019 – December 7, 2019
Afternoon (Tentative timeslot: 1-5 PM)
Co-organised by: YESS-APECS-YHS
Supported by: WCRP & AGU
The joint early career researchers (ECR) workshop “Water Cycle in a 1.5°C warmer world: interdisciplinary approaches’’ aims to bring together students and early career researchers to discuss 1) a joint perspective on the water cycle and governance under climate change, from the fundamental processes to societal impacts, 2) to identify how the science of the upcoming generation of researchers can be integrated in the current WCRP Grand challenges and the new WCRP Strategy, and 3) to explore how the various early career researchers networks can work in a more integrative manner, benefit from each other, and improve their communications channels.
The call for applications is open now, apply here.
Special emphasis will be put on proposing an ECR’s roadmap to address future of research on water related research in the context of climate change in an interdisciplinary manner. The workshop will serve to identify research topics in which ECRs could contribute to the current and future climate research while exerting their career paths in Earth system science, promoting inter- and cross-disciplinary approaches.
This workshop is jointly organized by the Young Earth System Scientists community (YESS), the Young Hydrologic Society (YHS) and the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS); and is open to all networks of young scientists that have relevant research interest to the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP).
Few things to note:
- The workshop will be conducted in English, and all participants should have an adequate working knowledge of this language.
- All selected participants shall attend the AGU Fall Meeting 2019.
- Limited travel funding may be available, depending on need. Please indicate your needs in the application form.
- Workshop application close: 7 September 2019
- Notification of acceptance: 25 September 2019

A –Streams of Thought– contribution by Sina Khatami.
Asst/Prof. Grey Nearing is a hydrologist at the Department of Geological Sciences at
The University of Alabama (UA). Prior to joining UA, he has worked as Project Scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Researchand, and Research Scientist at the NASA Hydrologic Sciences Lab. I’ve enjoyed an ongoing dialectical debate with Grey, intense yet delightful, on the philosophy of science particularly hydrological uncertainty. It’s been a pleasure to interview Grey.
Can you tell us a little about your background and education?
I studied Math in undergraduate because I felt that this would keep my options open in terms of future career paths. I went into the Environmental Sciences mostly because this is where I found a graduate assistantship (through the US Department of Agriculture). I chose my PhD adviser because I enjoyed reading his papers. Continue reading
The 27th International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) General Assembly 2019 (IUGG 2019) is organized in Montréal, Québec, Canada between July 8-19, 2019. The sessions within scientific program of IAHS can be seen in this here. The full IUGG 2019 searchable scientific program is available and can be accessed through this link.
IAHS Early Career Committee complements the IAHS scientific program with 5 workshops. Although these workshops are organized by and for Early Career Scientists, they are open to everyone. Don’t forget to add them in your schedule! Please note that a pre-registration is not necessary. The workshops will be open to a limited number of participants selected on a first come-first served basis. The descriptions of the workshops are available at the end of this post.

Last year, Sandra Pool and colleagues published a technical paper in Hydrological Sciences Journal that proposing a modification of the Kling-Gupta efficiency towards a non-parametric metric. We thought it was an interesting choice of topic and went to ask her a few questions about the paper.
Where are you from, where are you based, and what are you working on now?
I’m from Switzerland and work at EAWAG, the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology as a post-doc. I completed my PhD studies at the University of Zurich, in the Hydrology and Climate group with Jan Seibert as my main supervisor. The main focus during my PhD was on the value of data for hydrological modelling, which includes model evaluation criteria. I’m currently researching the effect of irrigation modernization on groundwater recharge: plot scale studies have shown that drip irrigation is more water-efficient than flood irrigation, but at the catchment scale this effect is less clear. I’m trying to understand why we get different results at different spatial scales. Continue reading

We are pleased to announce that the abstract submission is now open for the next STAHY International Workshop (STAHY 2019) to be held in Nanjing, China between 19-20 October 2019. The workshop is organized by the International Commission on Statistical Hydrology (ICSH) of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS), in cooperation with the Hohai University.
- Abstract submission deadline: June 30, 2019
- Notification of acceptance: July 15, 2019
- Early bird registration: August 15, 2019
Please also have a look at the Early Career Day at October 18, where talks are given by András Bárdossy and Salvatore Grimaldi on “how to write a statistical paper” and “how to communicate statistics”. The talks will be followed by an open discussion. You can register for this event at http://www.stahy2019.org/early_career_course/. All the other information are available on the website http://www.stahy2019.org/.
