Title
WatREx Water-Related Extremes
Duration
January 2004 until December 2008
Contact
Zbigniew Kundzewicz
Description

The project will investigate flood and drought related processes in selected drainage basins in Germany, in order to derive generalized relationships between meteorological and hydrological extremes and to investigate the geographical pattern of climate change and its relation to the occurrence of floods and droughts. Comparison of variability and change in extremes in long time series of observed meteorological and hydrological data, and in model projections of relevance to floods and droughts, will be made.
