banner EGUGalileoConference

The 8th Galileo Conference, titled “A European Vision for Hydrological Observation and Experimentation”, was held in Naples (Italy) from 12 to 15 June 2023.

The conference was jointly sponsored by the Interdepartmental Centre for Environmental Research (C.I.R.AM.) of the University of Naples Federico II (Italy) and Forschungszentrum Jülich (Germany), and organized by the University of Naples Federico II in the setting of the Historical Complex of Saints Marcellino and Festo.

Water is a key factor for life and for sustaining food, feed, and biomass for energy production in today’s bio-based economies but, in the coming decades, projected changes in the water cycle will be the main drivers in shaping our environment and its ecosystems. The 8th Galileo Conference focused on the following scientific sessions:

  • Innovative geophysical sensing methods in hydrological and critical zone research
  • Environmental monitoring and modeling with the support of UAS and satellites
  • Data assimilation, artificial intelligence, and hydrological observations
  • Using O-H stable isotopes for studying hydrological process understanding and the history of flowing waters
  • Big data science in hydrological research

The organizational and scientific committee was chaired by Nunzio Romano (Univ. of Naples Federico II), co-chaired by Harry Vereecken (Forschungszentrum Jülich), and composed of the following members: Roland Baatz (Zalf Müncheberg, Germany); Günter Blöschl (TU Wien, Austria); Isabelle Braud (INRAE Villeurbanne, France); Gabrielle de Lannoy (KU Leuven, Belgium); Karsten Høgh Jensen (University of Copenhagen, Denmark); Laurent Pfister (LIST Luxembourg, Luxembourg); Paolo Nasta, and Salvatore Manfreda (University of Naples Federico II, Italy); Sonia Seneviratne (ETH Zürich, Switzerland); Ana Maria Tarquis (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain); Ilja van Meerveld (University of Zürich, Switzerland); Heye Bogena, and Ralf Kunkel (Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany); Marc Voltz (LISAH Montpellier, France);Yijian Zeng (Twente University, The Netherlands).
