Water Resources Management

The Chair of Water Resources Management conducts research on irrigation systems, polders, urban areas and complete river basins. Our aim is to support water management practices by increasing understanding of water management processes, providing know-how and expertise, and offering an independent view. To this end, we collaborate closely with water managers and stakeholders.

We apply a broad, interdisciplinary approach to water management issues. The tools that we use in our research range from data assimilation and remote sensing, to real-time-control and legal and stakeholder analysis. The issues studied include floods and droughts, climate change, water pollution, performance, international conflicts and IWRM.

In addition, we offer courses on water resources management. We try to involve our students as much as possible in our ongoing research projects.

Through the left-hand menu you can get more information on our staff, projects and courses.
