CAHMDA workshop at ITC
Catchments in a Changing Climate
From 8 to 13 July, the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) at the University of Twente is organizing the CAHMDA workshop, with a focus on predicting how river basins will be affected by the changing climate.
Innovative techniques for collecting hydrological data and using it in computer models will be demonstrated with the aim of more accurately quantifying the effect of climate change on river basins, such as those of the Rhine and the Maas. Over 100 scientists from all over the world are converging on Twente to share their knowledge in a rich and varied programme in a highly interactive setting.
The Catchment Hydrological Modelling and Data Assimilation workshop – or CAHMDA for short – is held every two to three years in a different location. The upcoming CAHMDA workshop will be the fifth and will take place from 8 to 13 July. The organization is in the capable hands of the Water Resources Department of the University of Twente’s ITC Faculty. Researchers from across the globe will demonstrate the very latest measurement and analysis techniques and present theories on a range of hydrological processes and the formation of river basins. There will be a particular focus on the impact of climate changes and the improvement of calculation models.
The programme will include various interactive workshops, poster presentations, a training programme for PhD students, social activities and excursions, including a trip to the Maeslant storm surge barrier at Hook of Holland.
