RunSed-CC - Modelling future runoff and sediment transport in alpine torrents

Project: Research project

Description

We aim to model hydrological reactions to climate change and according future sediment transport in an alpine catchment. Runoff is modelled based on recent climate scenarios (ÖKS15). Sediment availability, transport and deposition are derived in the field from surveys and sensors. Simulated runoff and observed sediment data are linked in a 2D transport model. The results will be transferred to other catchments in a GIS approach to highlight future challenges for disaster prevention.
