TERENO International Conference 2014 From observation to prediction in terrestrial systems

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

Climate and land use change are key factors influencing the terrestial hydrological system which need to be managed by society in the coming decades. These changes act and provoke system reactions on different spatial and temporal scales, which result in immense challenges for invironmental and hydrological research. Terrestial environmental research has to tackle these challenges.
