The Panta Rhei session at AGU: a success

The Panta Rhei session at the AGU Fall meeting was a success in terms of attendance and scientific content. More than 50 presentations were given as oral talks and posters. Finally, the session was closed by a memorable dinner that was an unusual and exciting opportunities to share ideas. The dinner took place at the Panta Rei (yes, a "h" is missing in the spelling of "Rhei", but the quality of the dinner did not suffer) restaurant in Columbus Aveneu and was attended by some 30 presenters and conveners.
We are pleased to make available for download the presentations that were used to deliver the oral invited talks in the three themes that were treated during the sessions. We would like to thank very much the speakers for making the documents available.

The next AGU Fall Meeting, to be held in San Francisco (USA) during December 9-13, 2013, will host a session framed within the context of Panta Rhei. The session, titled "H21N. Hydrological Change and Water Systems: Feedbacks, Prediction, and Experimental Management", is convened by Nandita Basu (University of Waterloo), Alberto Montanari (University of Bologna), Maria Cristina Bruno and Theodore Melis (USGS Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center). The oral presentations will take place on Tuesday, December 10, during the all day in room 3002 (Moscone West). Posters will be presented in the morning of Wednesday, December 11, Hall A-C (Moscone South).

The session has gained an exciting interest. 54 contributions were submitted that are focusing on the Panta Rhei themes. The symposium will be an exciting opportunity to get started with the activities of Panta Rhei and to bridge with existing initiatives and researches.

A visionary session on Panta Rhei will also be organised during the EGU meeting to be held in Vienna in April 2014. More details will be posted later.

I am looking forward to possibly seeing you in San Francisco!

The Panta Rhei Target Leaders

Panta Rhei includes three targets, namely, (1) Understanding, (2) Estimation and prediction and (3) Science in practice. Each target is led by a Target Leader and a Target Co-Leader. Target Leaders are nominated for a biennium and their role is to assist the Panta Rhei Chair in overseeing the scientific activity that is carried out within Panta Rhei and to keep the links with the community. The tasks of the Target Leaders include the identification and preliminary approval of Research Themes and Working Groups (the final approval is formalised by the IAHS Bureau), the organisation of Panta Rhei initiatives (scientific session at conferences, educational initiatives, summer schools etc.) and the synthesis of the activity that is carried out under each target.

The Target Leaders for the Biennium 2013-2015 are:
