H070:
Hydrology, society and environmental change: Coupled human-water dynamics across scales


Possible Alternate Format: If this session is allocated an oral session, the convener can choose to have lightning style presentations that are quicker and more focused than a traditional session. Learn more


Session ID#: 25338

Session Description:
This session welcomes abstracts that consider how to observe, understand, model, and manage the effects of human and environmental changes on hydrological systems. The interactions of coupled human-water processes across multiple time and spatial scales can give rise to the emergence of complex dynamics, including critical transitions, and will pose major challenges for sustainable water management. This session is organised as part of the IAHS Panta Rhei hydrological decade 2013-2022 and is a part of the AGU-JpGU joint sessions on socio-hydrology. Examples of relevant areas include:

  • Hydrologic models that include anthropogenic effects
  • Global hydrologic modeling of water resources, hazards or hydrologic changes
  • Measurements of human impacts on hydrological processes
  • Interactions of communities with local water resources
  • Creation of databases describing hydrology in human-impacted systems
  • Analysis of hydrological systems around the globe and especially in developing and emerging countries
  • Human interactions with hydrological extremes (floods and droughts) and water scarcity
