6th International Conference on Water Resources and Environment Research „Water and Environmental Dynamics“

The conference on water and environment research is an independent platform providing scientists with a possibility to present and discuss their work in the fields of hydrology, environmental research, aquatic ecosystem research, water resources research and management as well as global change. The focus of the 6th conference is set on fostering an integrative understanding of water and the environment. It brings together physical, biological, chemical, statistical, socioeconomic and technical expertise in order to discuss solutions for transient environmental boundary conditions.

The 6th ICWRER conference is jointly organised with the European sediment network SedNet. SedNet will organise a special full-day symposium that addresses sediment processes at the catchment scale. Sources of sediments in river basins are manifold and often affect multiple management objectives in many locations. Transfer pathways between source and impact are often long and complex. Mobilisation and movement of sediment is often associated with high energy and high flow events, with few monitoring programmes adequately addressing this part of the flow range.

Meanwhile, the European Water Framework Directive stipulates a water resources management at the catchment scale. The 6th ICWRER will also provide an explicit platform for research on climate change and variability and possible impacts on our infrastructure and related economic activities.

KLIWAS is a major German research programme on climate change that covers aspects from impact studies to adaptation potential. KLIWAS will organise special sessions on climate related topics and invites scientists working on climate and water to participate.
