Hydrology of catchment areas

As part of efforts to enhance water resources’ management and flood-risk prevention, the “Hydrology of catchment areas” team explores the spread of hydrological flows in geographic and temporal terms. To this end it examines various components of catchment areas' hydrological cycles.

The team endeavours to build probabilistic models of the regime of watercourses, gain a better understanding of the climatology of precipitation and determine the extent to which the regime of watercourses can be altered by human activities.
Research is divided into two thematic groups:
