The International Commission for the Hydrology of the Rhine Basin (CHR) cordially invites scientists and river managers to its Spring Seminar 25-26 March in Lyon, in which the first detailed, basin-wide sediment budget for the Rhine is presented and discussed.

RIVER BASINS is a biannual scientific conference held this time at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The conference (former "Karlsruher Flussgebietstage") provides a platform for the scientific exchange of all aspects regarding river basin management. This includes the quantification of water and mass fluxes as well as processes in rivers and ecological issues.

We are happy to announce the launch of our new website! Our old website was sadly not performing up to standards, so we've taken the opportunity of improving the website performance and revisiting its design at the same time. The result is a professional, elegant and user-friendly website. We would like to thank Rianne Croes and Joris Lange for once again helping us with our online challenges. Read on if you would like to see how our previous websites looked like, what's new and how your photograph can end up in our header.
