The Nordic Hydrological Conference (NHC2022)

  • NHC2022: Hydrology and Water-related Ecosystems

  • Tallinn University, Tallinn, Estonia, 15-18 August 2022

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 Service in Estonia.


  • Knowledge gaps in the interactions between hydrology, ecosystems and global change
  • Hydrological and ecological modelling
  • Approaches for monitoring, assessment, protection and restoration for water and ecosystem services
  • Water and ecosystems for human well-being
  • Water policy and governance
