How does snowline elevation change during snowmelt runoff events? What are the spatial and temporal differences across Europe?
Constraining models outputs and inputs
To gain understanding about the added value of the different sources of information (e.g., remote sensing products and analytical approaches) in constraining hydrological models inputs and outputs. We will test for different places in different climatic regions.
Provide decision makers with updated probabilities of the occurrence of extreme events. In particular, floods and droughts will be the objects of our interest.
Compare seasonal hydrological forecasting skill from a number of hydrological models under different hydro-climatic conditions
The main goal is to enhance the accuracy of large-scale runoff simulations with meso-scale hydrological informations
compare model estimates of riverine nitrate concentrations
evaluate the role of available environmental data for model performance
Gain a comparative understanding of how different models simulate catchment hydrological response to changing land cover
