National Modeling Seminar 20.11.2023 in Kallahti, Helsinki

How hydrology and modeling support green transition in the changing environment?

In the Nordic, water has been the invisible resource. It gains wider interest when becoming a problem for land-use activities, infrastructure, recreation, or ecosystem resilience. The change towards more sustainable use of Earth’s resources and resilient societies in changing climate requires a renewed focus on water.

We welcome you to the 2023 edition of the National Modeling Seminar series organized in collaboration with the Hydrology division of Water association Finland, universities, and research institutes. The seminar will focus on two broad themes:

  1. How process-based environmental models, data-driven approaches and new data streams can improve systemic thinking in hydrology?
  2. How hydrology and environmental modeling should support green transition?

Join the discussion by presenting recent work and sharing your ideas. Let’s make hydrology greater than ever!

Time: Mon 20.11.2023, 09:00 – 16:30.

Venue:  Cultural Centre and Conference Hotel Sofia (, Kallvikinniementie 35, 00980 Helsinki.
