During the EGU-conference in Vienna (22 – 27 April 2012), there will be a very interesting session on ‘New insights into the effect of vegetation and evaporation’.
Abstracts are now welcome! Please submit your abstract here.
On 2nd of February 2012 I will give a colloquium presentation at the University of Freiburg (Institut für Hydrologie), Germany. The talk is entitled ‘After rain comes sunshine: canopy and forest floor interception’.
Further information can be found on http://www.hydro.uni-freiburg.de/veranstaltungen/kollq/

This is a bibliographic add-in for Microsoft Word that allows the citation in a Word document of references from a BibTex database.
Installation files and instructions can be found on http://www.ee.ic.ac.uk/hp/staff/dmb/perl/index.html
Install the following programs (all freeware):
After installing TeXnicCenter, open TeXnicCenter and link it to the location where MikTeX is installed. For WindowsXP this is likely C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.x\miktex\bin\latex.exe.
Then go to ‘MikTeX options’ (through the start menu in Windows) and click ‘Update formats’ on the General tab and set the ‘install packages on the fly’ on ‘yes’ or ‘ask first’.
Now, you are ready to start with LaTeX. A very good manual to learn the basics of LaTex can be found here.
