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.
