2014 Presentations
GEWEX 7th International Scientific Conference on the Global Water and Energy Cycle

Over 560 scientists, managers, and students from 45 countries attended the event. 436 posters were presented, covering Conference topics that addressed research on water resources, extremes such as drought and floods, new analyses from observations and data sets, studies of the processes involved; weather climate and hydrological model development and exploitation, applications of the information, technology transfer of new research into operational results, and research capacity development and training for the next generation of scientists.
Oral presentations are linked to each day's program: find Monday's presentations here, Tuesday's here, Wednesday's here, and Thursday's here.
Posters can be found on the day when they were presented: Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. For an overview of which posters were presented on which days, see For more information go to
