STUDY: Annual flood damages up to 100 billion EUR by 2080

Submitted by Celine Dondeynaz on 29 September, 2015 - 14:56

According to a JRC study published on 24 September, projections under a “high-end“ climate scenario show that river floods in Europe could directly affect more than half a million people a year by 2050 and nearly one million by 2080, as compared to about 200 thousand today. Related annual damages could climb from the current 5.3 billion EUR to up to 40 billion EUR in 2050 and reach 100 billion EUR by 2080, due to the combined effect of climatic change and socio-economic growth.

Hydrological Modeling GLOBAQUA Course for PhD students

Submitted by Celine Dondeynaz on 4 February, 2015 - 17:26
Duration: 
< 1 week

The course is organized by the hydrology group of the University of Trento within the framework of GLOBAQUA (www.globaqua-project.eu), a EU FP7 project. The focus of the course is on modeling hydrological processes across spatial scales. Particular interest will be devoted to catchment and continental scales, highlighting difficulties and the solutions proposed to cope with uncertainty arising from the dichotomy between process complexity, due to spatial heterogeneity, and the endemic data scarcity with which hydrology struggles.
