Greetings!

 

The NZ Hydrological Society, Rivers Group and Freshwater Science Society warmly welcome you to their joint conference to be held in Invercargill | Waihōpai,  from 1 – 4 December 2020. 

The conference theme is Weathering the Storm. This sets the scene for 3 days of oral and poster presentations, as well as some interesting Plenary Speakers, followed by a day of Field Trips. Conference papers covering all aspects of Hydrology, River System Management and Freshwater Science will be invited.

 

Invercargill is a superb venue for our conference and is a gateway to some of New Zealand’s ultimate nature and wildlife destinations, including the stunning Stewart Island | Rakiura. From hiking trails, cycling routes or fishing paradise, the deep south provides for a range of outdoor pursuits and tourist attractions to complement your stay.
