Sustainable future cities: monitoring urban ecosystem services

The purpose of this project is to investigate the impact of various vegetation types and urban green areas on urban heat mitigation through evaporative cooling, water budget, and CO2 fluxes.

Rainfall and Floods in Future Cities

The overarching goal of the project is to improve the knowledge of how the magnitude and occurrence of floods will change in future cities following the changes that are foreseen to extreme rainfall events and intensities.

Past Projects

  • Evaluation of future hydrological scenarios using a stochastic high-resolution climate data (Hydro-CH2018)
  • Generation of very high-resolution climate scenarios for hydropower projection (SCCER-SoE)
  • Weather radar-derived spatiotemporal characteristics of extreme rainfall intensities and their scaling with temperature
