Europe has experienced several dry and hot summers in the 21st century; in 2018 northern Europe was hit by an extreme drought centred over Scandinavia and in 2022 large part of Europe suffered extreme hot and dry conditions. Unlike many other natural hazards, droughts may persist for long periods and this is particularly true for groundwater droughts, which are the focus of this study

Europe has recently been hit by both extreme wet and dry conditions. In July 2021, a storm stalled over central Europe causing catastrophic flooding, with more than 200 casualties and large damages, notable in Belgium and Germany. In summer 2022, large parts of southern and central Europe experienced extremely hot and dry conditions with wide-ranging impacts - said to be the worst drought in Europe in 500 years.

Water flow on, in and under glaciers still remains a poorly understood system. Water can flow over the surface of glaciers, as well as through channels inside and under the ice. The water thereby has a strong influence both on ice melt and glacier dynamics, making glacial hydrology an important field of study.

In HyCAMP we address the impact of Short Lived Climate Forcers (SLCF) on cryospheric and hydrologic systems in the Himalayas, India, and Norway. The research is done in cooperation with The Department of Science and Technology, India.

Water availability is expected to be highly sensitive to climate change and severe water stress conditions may cause major social, economic and environmental problems. This requires better knowledge on the drought generating mechanisms, its impacts and mitigation options.

The aim of the DROUGHT-R&SPI project is to improve drought preparedness in Europe through increased knowledge of drought generating processes, drought early warning and management plans, and improved science-policy interfacing.

Hydrology is the study of the distribution and movement of water above, on and in the ground, including flow in streams and rivers. Knowledge in hydrology is of great importance for both the protection and exploitation of our freshwater resources.

The NUFU project aims to improve knowledge on water resources under present and a changing environment (e.g. land use and climate change) in southern Africa and Malawi, in particular. Key thematic areas include water quality and link to the origin of water resource, surface water-groundwater interactions, hydrological extremes (flood and drought) and water resources under present and a changing environment.

Full project title: Capacity Building in Water Sciences for Improved Assessment and Management of Water Resources (NUFUPRO-2007/10079).
