Nordic Association for Hydrology


The Nordic Association for Hydrology (NHF) is an independent body which aims at promoting hydrology as a science and at increasing the understanding of hydrology and of hydrological methods within applied sciences and water planning in the North. It has currently approximately 200 members.

NHF membership is open to all individuals and institutions/companies actively interested in hydrological work or research. The statutes of NHF allow for members of the Board to represent other countries than the Nordic ones, but out of a maximum of eight board members, a minimum of five shall represent the Nordic countries. At present all the three Baltic countries, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, are also represented in the Board of NHF.

This site is the successor of the vannetinorden web site (2000-2010) that replaced a paper journal (1968-2000).
