Hydrological forecasting & more at EGU 2022

Happy New Year! We’ve got a new year resolution for you: submit an abstract to EGU22!

The EGU 2022 Annual General Assembly will take place from 3–8 April 2022. To adapt to the COVID-19 situation, this event will be hybrid with remote and in-person elements. It will be a great opportunity to find out about the latest scientific advances and to socialize with friends and colleagues virtually and in Vienna.

This year again, the EGU HS Hydrological Forecasting subdivision is packed with a range of sessions relevant to HEPEXers around the world. Below is a non-exhaustive list of relevant “Hydrological Forecasting” sessions and more, with links to more information on the EGU website. You can submit your abstract until January 12, at 13.00 CET!
