Invitation for submissions to special issue on "Hillslope Hydrology: Towards Improved Process UnderstandingUsing Modeling and/or Field Observations"
You are invited to submit your study to a special issue on "Hillslope Hydrology: Towards Improved Process Understanding Using Modeling and/or Field Observations" in the open access journal Water. If you are working currently on a hillslope study and plan to submit the results of your investigations in 2019, please consider this special issue that I organize together with Jaromir Dusek, Ali Ameli, and Shiqin Wang. Deadline for submission will be December 2019 and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions. Info can be found on the homepage and in the flyer (PDF download).
EGU session on "Stable isotopes to study water and nutrient dynamics in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum"
We are organizing again a session on "Stable isotopes to study water and nutrient dynamics in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum" for the European Geoscience Union General Assembly. It will be the third year that we invite abstracts to this topic and we are looking forward to hear about the recent developments in the field of stable isotope applications in soil plant interactions. The session was well-received in the last years with a full room during the interesting talks in our oral session and many inspiring discussions at the posters. We hope to attract once again many scientists and welcome abstract submission until January 10, 2019. https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2019/session/31635
Research visit to Finland
I was happy to take part in a seminar on "Isotopes and environmental tracers in hydrology" organized by the Water Resources and Environmental Engineering group at the University of Oulu, Finland. On two days, we heard about latest applications of tracers and discussed recent developments in tracer hydrology. On the third day, I served as an opponent for a PhD defense, which meant that I discussed with the PhD student their thesis over 90 minutes. For the rest of the week, I joined the research group for a field campaign at the Pallas-Yllästunturi-Nationalpark to take for example soil samples for stable isotope analysis and install snow lysimeters. It was a week full of exciting research, great discussions and stunning landscapes. I am looking forward to go back to Finland next year due to funding by the German Hydrolgical Society.
