EGU 2020 begins!

EGU 2020 begins!

May 1, 2020 | by: Shervan Gharari

Last year we had a wonderful session at the EGU 2019. As lead convener, I was working closely with my colleagues Björn, Luis, Simon and Sina to organize more than 50 abstracts and 3 oral blocks. We had thought-provoking contributions from catchment to global hydrology. From remote sensing to field observation. A wide range of expertise and opinion.

This year however, things are a bit different. We are depending on a text-based system to present and convene. I was thinking to myself; “who will participate?!”. But it turns out that there are many more enthusiastic scientists that I initially anticipated.

This year, we move on to convene our session while sitting in totally different time zones. For the good memories, I keep looking at this picture from EGU 2019. Hope everyone in this picture is safe and happy. And I sincerely hope to make another photo like this next year.

From our side, the computational hydrology team has the following contributions at EGU 2020:
