Welcome to our blog!

Hi there and welcome to our new blog site for the Water Sciences Group at the University of Birmingham. We are a group of researchers who are interested in all things watery from ecology to water chemistry to hydrology and on! We hope that this page will be a place where we can discuss issues and advances in the science, provide some details of the research that we are doing and keep everyone informed of conferences, publications and such like that are coming up. Please feel free to post as much or as little as you want.

AGU 2011

The Water Sciences research group was well represented at AGU 2011.

David Hannah gave an invited talk in a session on understanding hydrologic change entitled “European river flow regimes: space time-dynamics and links to large-scale climate”. Stefan Krause delivered an invited talk in a session on ground water surface-water interactions that sought to answers the question: “Hot moments and hot spots in hyporheic nutrient transformation – To what degree does small-scale variability control stream-reach attenuation potential?”. Stefan was co-author on another invited talk about “Development and application of a heat pulse sensor for in-situ measurement of hyporheic flow”.

Several poster presentations were made across a range of water-related topics (with Birmingham authors) including:

  • Assessing future changes in pan-European environmental flows (Cedric Laizé and David Hannah)
  • Nested heat tracer experiments for identifying heterogeneity of aquifer-river exchange at multiple scales (Stefan Krause and David Hannah)
  • Ocean-atmosphere forcing of summer streamflow drought in Great Britain (David Hannah)
  • Space-time variability in river flow regimes of northeast Turkey (Faize Şaris, David Hannah and Warren Eastwood)
  • The climatic sensitivity of river temperature regimes in England and Wales (Grace Garner, David Hannah and Jon Sadler)
  • Water Temperature Dynamics in High Arctic River Basins (Phil Blaen, David Hannah and Sandy Milner)

  1. Hi, probably our entry may be off topic but anyways, I have been surfing around your blog and it looks very professional.

    It’s obvious you know your topic and you appear fervent about it. I’m developing a fresh blog plus I’m struggling to make it look good,
    as well as offer the best quality content. I have learned much at your web site and also I anticipate alot more articles and will be coming back soon. Thanks you.
