Water Problems Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences
invites students, post-graduate students and young scientists to participate in the annual School of Young Researchers “River runoff modelling and forecasting, hydrological risk management: to a new generation of methods”. The School is organised within the project “A new generation of models, methods and technologies to counteract today’s threats to water security”, supported by the Russian Science Foundation.
We held four Schools (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020). Leading scientists in the field of river runoff mathematical modelling and hydrological forecasting from Canada, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, Taiwan and the USA delivered their lectures and practical sessions during 5 days. The video recording is available on the official YouTube
channel of the project.
In 2020, the School was held online due to the restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The lecturers of the School - leading specialists in the field of mathematical modeling of runoff, hydrological predictions and climate change from Canada, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Japan, the
Netherlands, Poland and the USA - presented their talks on Zoom. The event was broadcast for the listeners in 65 countries of the world on the YouTube channel of the School from the WPI RAS studio in Moscow. The video and presentations are available.
In 2019, the School was organised within the All-Russian Scientific Conference “Scientific problems of the recovery of Russian rivers and ways to address them”. It was held in the Institute of Applied Physics of RAS (Nizhny Novgorod). The video recording of the lectures by Russia’s leading researchers in the area of water resources is available
In 2018, the School was held in the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow). Presentations, video lectures and photos are available
In 2017, the School took place in Lomonosov Moscow State University (Moscow). Presentations, lectures and photos are available
