About the Hydrology and Environmental Hydraulics Group

The HWM chair aims to contribute to the improved understanding of catchment-scale hydrological processes through advanced measurement, modelling and assimilation techniques.

Our research objectives are:

  1. developing, testing and interpreting advanced observation methods for hydrological and hydraulic fluxes and states at a range of spatial and temporal scales;
  2. developing catchment-scale hydrological models for water flow and sediment transport;
  3. hydrological synthesis at the catchment scale, with special attention to hydroclimatological extremes (floods and droughts).
