Hydrological Forecasting at Virtual EGU 2021

The EGU 2021 Annual General Assembly (vEGU21) will take place from 19–30 April 2021, and due to the challenging Covid-19 situation, this event will be a virtual one. We shall nevertheless grasp all opportunities to get updated on the recent scientific insights and developments and also to virtually socialize with friends and colleagues.

From the Austria Centre (Vienna) in 2019 to our “Home Conference” Centre in 2020 and 2021.

To suport the EGU HS Hydrological Forecasting subdivision efforts and make vEGU21 a big success this year too, see below the sessions that are relevant to HEPEXers. Do not forget to submit your abstract for vEGU21 by the 13th January at 13.00 CET. The sessions below marked with EDI (Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion) have convener teams that fulfil the EGU criteria on gender, career stage and origin.
