HydroGeM3 approved for funding

The project HydroGeM3 (Hydrological scenarios in the Austrian Alps for the next century using a statistical weather generator and enhanced process understanding for modelling of seasonal snow and glacier melt for improved water resources management) has been approved for funding by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW). The project will start in January 2015 and aims at analyzing changes in future water availability (with focus on snow and ice melt contributions to runoff) and water demand in the two study regions Ötztal (Tyrol, Austria) and Lütschine (Berner Oberland, Schwitzerland).
