The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

Water temperature in a changing climate: processes, implications, and managing strategies

The 5° IAHR Europe Congress will bring together the hydraulic community. The congress deals with traditional themes linked to water (hydraulics, hydrology, fluids mechanics and hydraulic constructions) and also with frontiers themes between fluid mechanics/hydraulics an others disciplines, i.e. morphology and eco hydraulics, the ecology of aquatic environments, bio fluids, new strategies of defense against extreme events and the effects of climate changes.

During the congress there will be a special session entitled "Water temperature in a changing climate: processes, implications, and managing strategies." The session is open to contributions on all studies centered on water temperature in freshwater systems including rivers, lakes, reservoirs, lagoons, and tidal systems. The session is intended to foster the connection between engineers, biologists, and ecologists, thus contributions from colleagues from all these disciplines are warmly welcomed.

Special Session HM.4: Water temperature in a changing climate: processes, implications, and managing strategies
Water temperature is a key control of a wide range of physical, chemical, and biological processes in freshwater systems. Being able to reliably predict its response to changing environmental conditions is required to support effective management strategies and to quantify the implications for water quality and aquatic ecosystems. This session aims at defining the present knowledge of hydro-thermal processes in freshwater systems and at gathering examples of best practices to control water temperature changes in rivers, lakes, and reservoirs.
