SGM 2019: Symposium «Hydrology, Limnology and Hydrogeology»

This symposium is part of the 17th Swiss Geoscience Meeting from 22 to 23 November 2019 in Fribourg. The session is open to contributions dealing with hydrology, limnology and hydrogeology at all scales, including contributions demonstrating interdisciplinary approaches.
