After every two years, the Nordic Hydrological Conference (NHC) takes place in a different member country of the Nordic Association for Hydrology (NHF). In August 2022 we are waiting you to Tallinn, Estonia. NHC2022 main topic will be “Hydrology and Water-related Ecosystems”. It will offer a great opportunity to discuss not only strictly hydrological questions but also about water as the basis of our whole existence and warrant for human well-being. Functioning water cycle and clean water are one of the most important ecosystem services we have. The NHC2022 will be an excellent venue for dissemination of scientific results and practical applications of hydrological research.

NHC2022 will also celebrate two special events - the 50th Year Anniversary of the Nordic Association for Hydrology and 100 Years of Hydrological Monitoring in Estonia.

The organizing committee of NHC2022 consider Russia's aggression unjustified and condemn the military attack on an independent state.

Due to the Russian aggression in Ukraine the organizers of NHC2022 are halting cooperation with Russian and Belarusian institutions, even we strongly acknowledge the statement from many Russian scientists and scientific journalists who have spoken out against the war started by Russia in the heart of Europe.

Participants from Ukrainian institutions are exempted from the NHC2022 conference fee.
