Ecohydrology Research Group (ERG) members presented their research virtually at the 49th International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) Congress. Philippe Van Cappellen gave a Keynote Lecture on “Global Impacts of River Damming on Carbon and Nutrient Cycles: A Synthesis” on the final day of the congress, which was held fully online.
Philippe Van Cappellen and Fereidoun Rezanezhad and their colleague Professor Rui Ma from the China University of Geosciences convened a session titled “Sustainable Water Futures for Cold Regions”, which included a series of oral and poster presentations. The session’s invited speakers were Dr. Kunfu Pi, a former postdoctoral fellow at ERG now at China University of Geosciences, and Dr. Mats Öquist from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.
The following research was presented by ERG members:
