Chair's corner


It is now two years ago since we met in Stockholm for NHC 2014. This year we will meet in Kaunas, Lithuania for the XXIX Nordic Hydrological Conference, 8-10 August under the main theme “The role of hydrology towards water resources sustainability”. It will be a pleasure to meet you all again, and I am looking forward to exciting days in Kaunas with new and old hydrology friends.

During the last two years we have been trying to increase the activity level of the Nordic Association for Hydrology. One way of doing that is by supporting other activities in the Nordic and Baltic countries such as conferences, workshops and courses. NHF has supported two conferences in 2015, The 20th Northern Research Basins Symposium and Workshop in Finland and The 3rd Conference on Modelling Hydrology, Climate and Land Surface Processes in Norway.

This will be my last and only note in the Chair’s corner. I would like to thank you for the opportunity to be part of the board for the last 8 years as a NHF board member for Sweden, and for the last 2 years as a chair. I will now leave the NHF ship to a new crew and captain, but hope to see you all in coming NHC’s and other NHF activities.
