We would like to attract your attention and interest to our session at the 2023 EGU General Assembly (23–28 April) in Vienna, Austria and online. The European Geosciences Union (EGU) is the leading organisation for Earth, planetary and space science research in Europe. In line with the topics within our BMBF funding measure on hydrological extreme events, our session focuses on “Managing both Extremes at once – Approaches for addressing Flood Protection and Drought Prevention”.
This session aims to bring together scientists working on compensating one extreme with another. The session focusses explicitly on combining opposing hydrological extremes and their consequences at different temporal and spatial scales. We welcome submissions that present interdisciplinary approaches for understanding and managing both at the same time, scarce water resources but also flooding events. We welcome contributions focusing to the whole strategic and operative management processes of these extreme events including modelling techniques for hydrological hazards but also their consequences, mitigation measures, ranging from technical solutions like storm water storage to an adaptive design of urban and rural areas or operative-working forecasting systems.
The abstract submission is open until 10 January 2023, 13:00 CET.
If you want to apply for financial support, you need to submit your abstract by 1 December 2022, 13:00 CET.
