5th Workshop on soil physics and landscape hydrology - Desná 2023


We would like to invite you to the fifth annual Workshop on soil physics and landscape hydrology organized by the department of Landscape Water Conservation.

The main focus is on of the actual scientific outcomes presented mostly by the phd students working on various research projects related to soil physics and hydrology. Covered topics are:  transport of water and solutes through soils, catchment hydrology, rainfall-runoff processes, soil degradation, erosion processes, remote sensing in landscape hydrology, geographic information systems and numerical modelling.

The workshop aims on students of doctoral study program Civil Engineering, branches Water Engineering and Water Management and Environmental Engineering, also a limited number of master students involved in the research projects may attend. The workshop will also be held in English as foreign phd students are anticipated.

For registration fill google sheet. The deadline for registration is 9th of October.

Participants should prepare 10 to 15 minutes presentation of their current scientific work. Unfinished work or work in progress may be also presented. Short (or long) discussions should follow after each presentation.


11 - 13. 10. 2023


3rd Workshop on soil physics and landscape hydrology will be held in Desná in Jizera Mountains in Scout
Mountain Base Desná (Map).
