Call for Papers for “Hydrology delivers Earth System Sciences to Society (HESSS4): Improving and Integrating Knowledge across Disciplines on Global Energy, Water and Carbon Cycles”

Submission Deadline: 31 October 2017

Across various disciplines, a number of community-wide initiatives (such as CMIP, GSWP, ISIMIP, HAPPI, ILAMB, etc.) have developed to synthesize and advance knowledge of climate change impacts, land surface processes, and global energy, water and biogeochemical cycles. The 4th international conference of Hydrology delivers Earth System Sciences to Society (HESSS4) provided a forum to strengthen synergies between research communities of climate modeling, monitoring, and impact assessment and to discuss how to deliver scientific achievements to our society. Here, we call for papers for a special collection to compile those interdisciplinary works introduced in HESSS4 and extended to the associated communities. Contribution are not limited to conference participants. More


Postdoctoral Researcher Position on Drought Predictability

Application Deadline: 30 June 2017

The State University of New York (SUNY) University at Albany’s Atmospheric Sciences Research Center invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher (PDRA) position on drought predictability in the southern Great Plains. The selected candidate will lead coupled regional modeling experiments using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model as part of an interdisciplinary team of hydrologists and meteorologists.

For additional details and to apply for this position, please visit the SUNY Research Foundation announcement R17-28. Queries related to this position may be directed to Dr. Craig Ferguson (crferguson@albany.edu).

The International Soil Modeling Consortium (ISMC) CROSS panel is searching for participants from the GEWEX community. The CROSS scientific panel develops and evaluates interdisciplinary concepts where healthy soil function plays a crucial role through collaboration with several scientific disciplines, bridging environmental science and socio-cultural approaches. CROSS aims to impact both science and society by innovation through its focus on soil science and its applicability to other fields. CROSS aims to realize this by: 1) acting as an exchange platform with other international panels like AGMIP and GEWEX-SoilWat; 2) defining a common vocabulary between scientific (sub)disciplines in order to develop exchange protocols; 3) establishing the conceptual bases needed to promote exchanges with other disciplines (climate research, hydrology, biology, and geology and the socio-economic sciences); 4) publishing papers in journals relevant to stress the importance of soil modeling for tackling key issues; 5) setting up multi-disciplinary working teams in grant proposals, such as H2020; and 6) advertising the existence of this panel at international meetings. If the CROSS panel and its aims appeal to you and you would like to participate, please email martine.vanderploeg@wur.nl and/or mathieu.javaux@uclouvain.be.
