Physically based modeling of hydroclimatological processes in mountain areas : Application in the Alps and Greenland.

par Molinie - 10 octobre 2013

Hydroclimatological processes are the link between the atmospheric boundary layer and the surface. In mountain areas, a significant and important exchange of energy and related water mass fluxes takes place at this interface. Solar irradiation, shadowing, turbulent fluxes and advective energy are spatially very heterogeneous in steep topography, and phase transitions of water play an important role. Temporal storage of water resources as snow and ice is an important feature of mountain water systems. Their release is strongly influenced by their distribution across topographic features, and lateral processes. Resulting mountain meltwaters are significant for the society in downstream regions. Mountain water systems are strongly affected by climate change, and thus understanding and modelling the relevant processes becomes a crucial step in developing strategies to adapt. In the seminar a sophisticated, physically based modelling system is presented (AMUNDSEN), including applications in the Alps and Greenland.
