Hydrology of the Baltic Sea Basin: Observations, Modelling, Forecasting

OrtState Hydrologic Institute, St. Petersburg, Russia
GastgeberState Hydrologic Institute, St. Petersburg, Russia and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, Germany

Climate change affects the water cycle of the Baltic Sea catchment basin, and adaptation will be required in the future. The extent to which the Baltic Sea region will be affected by changing hydrological conditions and what the best adaptation strategies are, is an issue of open discussion.

The workshop aims to bring together scientists to overcome the barriers in hydrological studies, including monitoring, modelling and forecasting. Both water quantity and quality issues will be discussed. We hope that covering the different facets of hydrology will help us to develop a more integrated understanding of the interactions between the water, energy and matter cycles, and the direct and indirect anthropogenic effects.

Extended Abstract Submission Deadline: 13 September
Registration Deadline: 13 September

Objektives of the Workshop are:

  • to review recent scienti fic contributi ons to assess past, current and future changes of the water cycle,
  • to share the experience of hydrological and hydrochemical monitoring, using diff erent tools and approaches,
  • to review recent developments in hydrological modelling in the Baltic Sea basin and neighboring domains, and
  • to discuss water quality issues and waste water treatment projects in the Baltic Sea basin
