Hydrologic Extremes at the Global Scale: teleconnections, extreme-rich/poor periods, climate drivers and predictability

Project description

Towards more efficient risk management of hydrological extremes

There is a heightened need to better understand hydrological extremes which are globally important natural hazards. Their key characteristics, such as their space-time variability, are not understood globally. There are also looming questions about the changes in such events, their tendency to teleconnect with each other around the world and the existence of extreme-rich and poor periods. Addressing the knowledge gap, the EU-funded HEGS project will examine hydrologic extremes to better inform design, safety and financial procedures as well as improve hazard preparedness and response. The work of the project will lead to new tools for the analysis of extremes globally and thus contribute to more efficient risk management.
