Hydrology for Quantitative Water Management

The Hydrology and Quantitative Water Management Group at Wageningen
University, The Netherlands, aims to contribute to the improved
understanding of catchment-scale hydrological processes through advanced
measurement, modeling and assimilation techniques.

Our research objectives are: (1) developing, testing and interpreting
advanced observation methods for hydrological and hydraulic fluxes and
states at a range of spatial and temporal scales; (2) developing
catchment-scale hydrological models for water flow and sediment transport;
(3) hydrological synthesis at the catchment scale, with special attention
to hydroclimatological extremes (floods and droughts). Hydrologic research
at the catchment scale as carried out by the group aims to provide a
significant contribution to improved water resources management.

In order to identify areas of mutual interest, this presentation will
provide a broad overview of ongoing research in the Hydrology and
Quantitative Water Management Group, covering the main lines of the
group's research and teaching programme: (1) hydrometeorology; (2)
catchment hydrology; (3) hydrogeology; (4) environmental fluid mechanics.
The presentation will provide several examples of the relevance of
research results for current environmental and societal issues, including
floods, droughts, heat waves, and river restoration.
