Hydrology & Climate Impacts in Mountain Regions
Lead: Prof. Dr. Manuela Brunner
The Hydrology & Climate Impacts in Mountain Regions research group at SLF quantifies hazard potential and water availability in mountain regions under global change.
Its research focuses on three core areas:
- Understanding processes governing multivariate hydro-climatic extreme events.
- Assessing climate impacts on water and climate extremes in mountain regions with a particular focus on the Alps.
- Improving predictions of extreme events by exploiting new datasets and the latest methodological advances in statistics, data science, and climate modeling.
The new group Hydrology & Climate Impacts in Mountain Regions with focus on water and climate extremes covers one of the six main topics of the CERC research centre.
The group is operated in collaboration with the chair for Hydrology and Climate Impacts at ETH Zurich in the framework of a joint professorship by Manuela Brunner.
Topics and goals of the group are summarised in this video.
