Modelling of water erosion, its hydrological and geochemical impacts

Online Young Scientist School (YSS) MEGAPOLIS 2022

This YSS will introduce young generation of researchers to special topics in hydrology, fluvial geomorphology and soil science, especially considering transport and fate of sediments. During the school, participants will learn about the current progress and challenges in Earth system research; sediment transport and soil erosion modelling and observations; and modern technologies for environmental studies and assessments. The programme will consist of theoretical lectures and practical exercises.
