We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Ecohydraulics is central to many challenges facing river and water resource management around the world. It links the disciplines of hydraulics with aquatic ecology, water engineering, fluvial geomorphology and biogeochemistry. The International Symposium on Ecohydraulics is the premier international meeting for scientists and innovative practitioners working across these disciplines focussing on the underpinning science and its application.
This meeting will be jointly run with the Engineers Australia 12th Conference on Hydraulics in Water Engineering under the theme of “Hydraulics and the Environment – Working with Nature”.
The last decade has seen rapid innovation in environmental applications of hydraulics with a transformation in environmental flows, integrated floodplain management and fish passage in Australia and elsewhere in the world. This joint meeting is an exciting opportunity to discuss lessons from this recent period of extreme droughts, floods and water reform in Australia with the international ecohydraulics community.
will attend and give an oral presentation entitled "River remote sensing for setting-up quantitative hydromorphological rehabilitation targets".
