LATICE seminar: Recent developments in large-scale hydrological modelling and climate projections
A seminar with the title: Recent developments in large-scale hydrological modelling and climate projections, is to be held Wednesday 14th of March. Speaker is Niko Wanders, Utrecht University.
This open seminar is provided by the research group LATICE.
Large-scale hydrological models play an important role in climate projections. Illustration: Colourbox
In recent years we have seen incredible developments in large-scale hydrological modelling. Spatial resolutions have reduced significantly and the complexity of processes that we are able to simulate has increased. We see a general increase in data and model availability, which is utilized in many modelling projects. Finally, the use of large ensemble climate projections allows for more detailed climate change attribution in hydrology.
In this talk I’ll highlight some of these new and exciting developments. I’ll show some recent projects that are related to multi-model seasonal forecasting, 2000-year climate scenarios for hydrological extremes and the development of a 30m continental scale hydrological model that simulates human-water interactions.
About the speaker:
Niko Wanders holds a position as Assistant Professor in Hydrological Extremes at Utrecht University, the Netherlands. His overarching research ambition over the past years has been to understand the impact that hydrological extremes have on the natural hydrological system and society, with the aim to develop methods, techniques and models that have real-life applications and applicability for monitoring and predicting hydrological extremes. Most of his work has focussed on combining large-scale hydrological modelling with satellite observations and data assimilation techniques, to better model, quantify and forecast drought and flood impacts.
The seminar is open for all interested in the topic of the seminar.
