PhD Course on Catchment processes 30 Sept-1 Oct 2019, Oulu, Finland – FINAL PROGRAMME out now

In Oulu (Uleåborg) in Finland, we organise a PhD course for early career scientists (PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers), with a goal to deepen the understanding of catchment hydrology and biogeochemistry processes. Methods and uncertainty of water monitoring is also covered. The course is linked to the on-going work in Biowater, where we study the responces in catchment processes due to the changes in the agriculture and forestry sectors  following the green shift (the transition to bioeconomy).

This two-day Autumn School (30 Sept-1 Oct) for max 20 participants comprises keynote lectures, practical exercises and sessions for networking and knowledge exchange. International experts in catchment hydrology, terrestrial and aquatic biogeochemistry, field measurement and mitigation of water pollution will be involved.

In addition to the two days, the course will include reading of literature before the course, active participation in lectures and exercises and a final report.

The course is now fully booked.
