Former Westminster Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Geoffrey Petts, who passed away on Saturday 11 August, was the Society’s immediate past President and used to deliver the opening keynote address.

The event took place from 12-13 September in the Regent campus with a vibrant programme including papers on many aspects of hydrological theory and practice, relevant to practitioners, regulators and researchers.

This year’s opening keynote address, the Penman Lecture, was given by Professor Keith Beven, FRS. The two-day meeting included sessions on Hydrology and Sediment Systems, Hydrology and Ecosystem Services, and Hydroecology, as well as ‘open’ sessions. The first day also involved the 36th BHS Annual General Meeting and an evening conference dinner.

The British Hydrological Society (BHS) was formed in 1983 as a new, national society for the development of hydrology. It welcomes everyone interested in the subject and aims to encourage good practice and scholarship in scientific and applied aspects of hydrology, and member involvement in national and international professional activities. It is an ‘Associated Society’ of the Institution of Civil Engineers and a registered charity.
