I am pleased to give a talk on this year’s 6th International Conference on Water Resources and Environment Research (ICWRER) which will take place in Koblenz, Germany, from June 3–7 2013.

I am looking forward to presenting some bits of my current research in a talk entitled “Infiltration during wadi runoff–a modelling tool for improving groundwater recharge assessment” on Thursday, 06-06-2013 at 04:15 pm in Room 1 (Hydroinformatics Session).

So feel free to join, discuss and contribute! See you in Koblenz!

PhD Seminary Oberstdorf


Since a couple of years, Uni Stuttgart’s IWS-LHG, Garmisch-based IMK-IFU (plus parts of Uni Augsburg’s geography department) and TU Dresden’s IHM hold a joint PhD seminary. This year, the seminary takes place at Oberstdorf. As always, a fine opportunity for scientific exchange and discussion…
