Tasks in the AMICE project
One of LFI-RWTH‘s core competences is hydrological modelling, covering rainfall-runoff models, extreme value statistics, and alternative soft computing approaches.
In the scope of this project, the LFI will work on the quantitative basis for the risk calculations as well as on the methodological knowledge transfer on the calculation of low-flows and floods between the partners.
In detail, the contribution will be:
- Analysis of downscaling approaches of regional climate change to the hydrological scale, quantification of the hydrological impact in the Meuse basin
- Participation in finding common scenarios for future floods and low flows in the Meuse basin for all project partners
- Hydrological rainfall-runoff modelling in the Rur basin, extension of existing models and adaptation to the demands of low-flows estimation
- Investigation of low-flows and floods trends with hydrological models and extreme value statistics in the Rur river
