The WMO/IAHR/IAHS International Hydrometry Workshop on recent advances in technology and uncertainty analysis will be held in Queenstown, New Zealand on Monday 28 November 2016 as a workshop of the 56th New Zealand Hydrological Society & 37th Australian Hydrology and Water Resources Symposium joint conference. Lecturers from New Zealand, Japan, Korea, France will present and discuss on recent advances in streamgauging techniques, air-borne measurements and uncertainty computations.
