Welcome to the Hydrology and Environmental Hydraulics (HWM) Group at Wageningen University.
We are a dynamic and committed team of 12 academics and around 40 PhD researchers and postdocs. Our focus is on hydrology and environmental hydraulics, which we combine to understand and quantify hydrological processes in catchments, aquifers, rivers and deltas. We develop novel sensing techniques, create models and perform field and lab experiments to advance process understanding. This supports water managers in predicting the effects of changes in climate, land use or water management, designing nature-based solutions or forecasting hydrologic extremes.
At HWM, we are rigorously engaged in deciphering the complex behavior of water in our world. Our mission remains steadfast: we are dedicated to advancing the fundamental understanding and prediction of hydrological processes in river basins, aquifers, and deltas to support critically needed water management solutions.
Our website is meticulously designed to engage and inform a diverse audience of water enthusiasts. Whether you are a scientist, a student, government employee or anyone impassioned by addressing the pressing challenges of our time, we invite you to explore our website, delve into our research, and join us in our mission to enhance our understanding of water and contribute to sustainable solutions that benefit us all.
Thank you for joining us in our unwavering pursuit of knowledge, innovation, and a deeper understanding of the indispensable role that water plays in addressing the climate challenges of our era.
