UCD’s CWRR at EGU 2017
From the 23rd to the 28th of April, the 2017 European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly was held in Vienna, Austria. The meeting covers all fields of geosciences, including hydrology , and three CWRR researchers were among the attendees to present their most recent research.
Thibault Hallouin presented the early results of his Ph.D research, for the ESManage project, on the use of hydrological and water quality models to predict the provision of freshwater ecosystem services during session HS5.4 “Water Resources Management and Policy in a Changing World”:
- Thibault Hallouin et al. – The role of hydrological and water quality models in the application of the ecosystem services framework for the EU Water Framework Directive
Dr Eva Mockler presented two posters to share the advances in the ‘CatchmentTools’ project during session HS2.3.5 “Water Quality at the Catchment scale” and to present the kicking-off project ‘Diffuse’ during session HS9.10 “Hydrological Connectivity and Sediment Dynamics”:
- Eva Mockler et al. – Sources of nitrogen and phosphorus emissions to Irish rivers: estimates from the Source Load Apportionment Model (SLAM)
- Eva Mockler et al. – Catchment Models and Management Tools for diffuse contaminants (sediment, phosphorus and pesticides): DIFFUSE Project
Dr Fiachra O’Loughlin presented his research on large scale hydrology using remote sensing during session NH9.10/SM10.10 “Global and Continental scale risk assessment for Natural Hazards”:
- Fiachra O’Loughlin et al. – Coupling large scale hydrologic-reservoir-hydraulic models for impact studies in data sparse regions
Overall, EGU 2017 was a great success for the CWRR and we are already looking forward to EGU 2018.
