European Hyporheic Forum

Mo. 2016-06-13 (09:00-18:00)

Contact: Karin Meinikmann

You are interested in hyporheic zones and related processes?

You would like to meet other persons working in the wide range of that field?

You want to share your findings and ideas?

Then join us at the European Hyporheic Forum (EHF)!

Hyporheic zones are highly reactive interfaces which are assumed to rule the self-purification capacities of rivers. We, the HypoTRAIN team, would like to to emphasize their particular importance for river ecosystems by implementing the EHF. Our first meeting aims at

  • facilitating scientific exchange,
  • fostering fast knowledge transfer between disciplines and
  • providing a platform for mutual feedback between science, regulation, and practice
