There were also other 6 academic reports, including Prof. Günter Blöschl’s report, titled Flood Generation-From Raindrop to the Ocean. From the perspectives of hydrological model building and application, flooding mechanism and urban storm flood simulation, simulation and assessment of the impacts of climate change on water resources, hydrological process of headwater catchment in north China, Prof. YU, Prof. XU, Prof. CHEN Xiaohong, Prof. WANG and Prof. TIAN conducted good exchanges, respectively. More than 100 researchers and graduate students from such research institute and universities as JRC, Hohai University, Tsinghua University, Beijing Normal University, Sun Yat-sen University and Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology attended the symposium as well.

After the symposium, Prof. Günter Blöschl and some participants visited JRC’s Tiexinqiao Water Experiment Center (WEC) and Chuzhou Experiment Center (CEC). JRC experts presented the their research achievements on high dam navigation technology, hydrological experiment and water resources management, and carried out in-depth exchanges and discussions with the visitors.
