Research Focus

Our main focus is on understanding and modeling the complex interaction of land-surface hydrologic processes and their spatial and temporal variability at meso- to macro-scale. Research focus is laid on drought reproduction and prediction, multiscale data assimilation and evaluation, and Multiscale Parameter Regionalisation:
