Surface hydrology and environmental analysis
The scientific basis of the Group is the study of water-related issues in changing environmentas to support the development of policies for sustainable development or disaster risk reduction. Our research aims to better understand the dynamics of human-environment systems, with a focus on hydrological extremes (droughts and floods).
Our research is mainly funded by Swedish (VR and FORMAS) and European (H2020) projects. Moreover, our activies are closely linked to Panta Rhei, the scientific decade (2013–2022) of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) and the Centre of Natural Hazards and Disaster Science (CNDS). The work is also carried out in support of three strategic research goals of the department: Natural Hazards, Climate and Sustainable Development.
