Open house days of the Swabian MOSES Campaign received large public interest. A research consortium of several Helmholtz centers, universities and the German Weather Service, investigates the cause and effects of hydro-meteorological extremes such as heavy thunderstorms, high precipitation and floods as well as heatwaves and droughts. The MOSES initiative is coordinated by the UFZ.

Start of the third phase of Collaborative Research Centre AquaDiva, investigating the links between surface and subsurface signals in the earth critical zone. Two projects are lead by researchers of CHS. They will investigate with modeling and observations how temporal and spatial variation of surface input and processes during subsurface transit drive the water flow and element transport to groundwater and rivers.

In October 2020 a new Helmholtz Young Investigator group ( link ) led by Jakob Zscheischler started in CHS. The group will work on compound weather and climate events with a particular focus on using novel ideas from explainable machine learning to identify compounding weather drivers of extreme impacts such as vegetation mortality, crop failure and floods. Recently the group was awarded a Helmholtz AI project called CausalFlood, in which compounding drivers of floods will be identified based on causal inference in collaboration with the group of Jakob Runge from DLR.
