ERB 2020
18th Biennial Conference


Conference topics and committee

Conference topics

Small experimental catchments offer invaluable opportunities to observe and study hydrological processes. Despite being time-, energy- and money-consuming, experimental studies carried out in representative catchments are fundamental to advance our understanding of the main hydrological processes and how they may be impacted by human activities.


The 18th biennial ERB conference 2021 aims to gather scientists working in small experimental catchments to foster communication and collaboration, share information on new monitoring technologies, analysis techniques, and recent scientific findings, and ultimately promote advancements in catchment hydrology.


The conference includes the following themes, with a specific focus on small catchments:  

  • New hydrological and ecohydrological monitoring techniques;
  • Advances in hydrological and ecohydrological modelling;
  • Environmental tracers in hydrological and ecohydrological studies;
  • Hydrological and ecohydrological processes understanding in arid and humid catchments;
  • Hydrological and hydrometeorological extremes;
  • Erosion and sediment transport;
  • Field work fails and unexpected behaviors;
  • Open session on general catchment hydrology.
