I gave a talk on the river memory experiment at the 2017 scientific assembly in Port Elizabeth (South Africa).

I presented a perspective on the status of the IAHS scientific decade 2013-2022 Panta Rhei at the IAHS 2017 scientific assembly in Port Elizabeth (South Africa). Panta Rhei is about change in hydrology and society.

Coastal engineering made easy is a pretentious title for an evolving e-book that is meant to provide an introductory reference to students who are interested in the design of coastal structures for beach preservation and restoration.

Presentation "Should we reconsider the conceptual structure of hydrological models?"

At the 2017 scientific assembly in Port Elizabeth (South Africa) I gave a perspective talk titled "Should we reconsider the conceptual structure of hydrological models?". My presentation is a bit provocative and focuses on stochastic physically-based modeling of hydrological processes. It also presents the concept of stochastic catchment area as a stochastic control volume for applying balance equation in hydrology. The contribution is inspired by the Montanari & Koutsoyiannis (2012) paper on Water Resources Research.
The talk triggered a long discussion at the end, unfortunately I do not have any video of presentation and discussion.
Thanks for your interest.
