The EGU annual conference was very special this year. Anne Van Loon received the prestigious Hydrological Sciences Division “Outstanding Early Career Scientist Award 2017”. She gave an interesting and inspirational medal lecture about her research to date encapsulated by the title “Learning from catchments to understanding hydrological drought” on the Tuesday to a very full room.
Anne also presented her current research on groundwater drought in the session “Drought and water scarcity: monitoring, modelling and forecasting to improve hydro-meteorological risk management”, and a PICO in the “Learning from hypotheses and failures in hydrology” session.
Sally Rangecroft, also presented their ongoing research on quantifying the human influence on hydrological droughts though case studies in the “Hydrological, society and environmental change” session. She also presented their CreativeDrought project as an “Interdisciplinary approach to building resilience to drought” in the session “Hydrology & Society: Transdisciplinary approaches to hydrology and water resources management”. Sally also presented at the Pre-EGU IAHS Panta Rhei day held in Vienna.
