Note that the Boussinesq Lecture is preceded by the 2010 Ph.D meeting of the Boussinesq Center. The Boussinesq PhD meeting aims at bringing together young hydrology researchers from universities and research institutes in the Netherlands to discuss current research questions in hydrology. The meeting will be a mixture of short presentations and related discussions. Young hydrology researchers from the chair groups which are linked within Boussinesq Center will present their work (one of each group).
