 APPLY TODAY ! There is an opening until July 10 (<---Here it is the link) for a Ph.D. position on the SpaceItUP and SUPER projects (Snow and glacier rUnoff Production in alpine RivER basins 1990-2050) Due to climate change, the Alpine region is experiencing a reduction in snow quantity (snow droughts) and an increase in evapotranspiration losses (green water), with significant consequences for sustainable water resource management and ecosystem preservation. This project aims to develop new models to quantify snowmelt and evapotranspiration losses, providing prac ..read more

How much snow is in the mountains and what is its fate? by Manuela Girotto
AboutHydrology
by
3w ago
Water resources such as snow or groundwater can be estimated using satellite remote sensing observations and numerical models. Both models and observations have inherent uncertainties and limitations related to observation errors, model parameterization, and input uncertainties. A promising method to alleviate shortcomings in models and observations is data assimilation because it combines existing and emerging observations with model estimates, thus bridging scale and limitation gaps between observations and models. Using these tools, we can address the following science questions: How much w ..read more

On catchment analysis (modeling)
AboutHydrology
by
1M ago
In a series of papers (Abera et al., 2016, Abera et al. 2017a, Abera et al., 2017b, Azimi et al., 2023), we have outlined a methodology for studying basins, focusing on specific locations BUT looking especially to the methodologies. They are also summarized in slides that I typically use in my hydrological modeling classes. These slides summarize the analysis requirements in seven key steps, supported by various notebooks that implement the methodologies. However, each time we start a new catchment analysis, this methodology seems to be overlooked, which is frustrating. It feels like we take ..read more

 How deep go the roots of a plant ? Certainly it depends on the age of a plant but for having a static idea, nothing is better than the collection of roots drawing that can be found at the Wageningen University repository. Clicking on the figure, you can access it.  ..read more

Hot to make an iPoster with usual paper media

---- Under Construction -----  Most researchers aim to present their work at conferences, often considering an oral presentation as the ideal outcome. Conversely, being assigned to present a poster can sometimes be seen as a second choice. However, I believe this perception overlooks the unique opportunities posters provide. Interacting with attendees at a poster session often leads to more in-depth conversations than those following an oral presentation. Recognizing this potential, some conferences, such as the European Geosciences Union (EGU), have innovated with new formats like the ..read more

Dear User or Dear Explorer, Here we aim to summarize some of the material related to GEOframe-NewAGE. The main source is certainly the GEOframe blog: The GEOframe blog  However, for a logical introduction, it may be useful to start here: GEOframe Essentials  The most recent material on GEOframe-NewAGE is from the latest school, accessible from this point: The 2024 GEOframe Winter School By following the links for each day, you can download the slides and watch the lesson videos.  and previous Schools and material Another useful resource is provided through hydrologica ..read more

And finally we speak about isotope concentration
AboutHydrology
by
2M ago
 If I understand correctly, colleagues arre measuring the concentration of an isotope in stream or some other catchment outlet.  This is quite not a measure of the age of water but the latter has to be inferred from  a hypothesis the system behavior, and possibly the knowledge of the distribution of water ages within the control volume, obtained iteratively from an initial data (derived from the isotopic data of precipitation). Therefore, assume you have measured in the outflow a concentration of 5 of solute X in appropriate units. You mai have  the knowledge of the concent ..read more

 If you grabbed the concepts previous post, you are probably ready to try to understand how you can use them proficiently in you hydrological work. You do not arrive first. ESA and NASA and other agenciesalready envisioned some of their use in a sequance of post and various contributions. Machine Learning is obviously a big issue in Earth Observation and remote sensing elaboration (see for instance here for an overview) or browse the activities of the RSLab for a perspective from the University of Trento.  Here they are a list of interesting links that I collected: Imagining ..read more

Can Large Language Models be useful in Hydrology ?
AboutHydrology
by
2M ago
I've been thinking about the potential utility of Language Model ( LLM ) applications in the field of Hydrology. Understanding requires delving into relevant literature and gaining a deep knowledge of how the statistical principles behind LLM operate (because they are statstical tools). The Wikipedia link above, on  serves as an initial source of information, offering some foundational understanding. Following this, I would delve into Cosma Shalizi's opinion to gain deeper insights. Careful reading and analysis ad zoom back to recover missing information is nece ..read more
