Our research focuses on the balance of key elements of a river basin such as water and sediment, which implies the interaction of these with climate, geomorphology, the biosphere and human made constructions. The equilibrium (or availability); the excess and the scarcity of these natural elements are decisive for the safety of society, access to food, energy production and the environment. The River Basin Development chair group investigates processes in the natural and built environment which are determinant for the design and planning of sustainable water infrastructures prepared for global change.
The four main lines of research of the chair group are:
Mapping and remote sensing
