In 2018 we initiated a session on „Hydromythology - what do we know and what do be just believe?“ at the EGU General Assembly. It was a really nice event with a lot of insightful presentations which even engaged the participants to continue their discussions in the coffee break afterwards :-)
Still there are a lot of open questions and (hydro-)mythologies to be discussed which is why we cordially invite you to participate in our PICO session at the EGU General Assembly 2019!
Hydro(mythology) and the role of misconception: what do we know & what do we just believe? (co-organized) PICO session
The PICO session aims at the following points but is not limited to:
(I) Studies challenging well-accepted theories with data
(II) Modelling studies including a critical assessment of calibration vs. evidence
(III) Studies showing how added empirical evidence changed the process understanding and helped to revise model structures & parameterisations
(IV) Studies addressing scaling of processes in models
