Hydrological model to support the countries around the Niger River

Heavy rainfall and dry spells are common in the countries surrounding the Niger River in West Africa. Researchers from SMHI in Sweden and the AGRHYMET regional centre in West Africa have jointly developed a tool which can provide a better quantification of the hydrological fluxes in the Niger River basin.

Research on intense precipitation could increase preparedness upon local flooding

In recent times, abundant rainfall over southwestern Sweden has caused high water levels and flooding. An ongoing research project is developing flow forecasts which are better at capturing the effects of sudden downpours. It allows for better preparedness upon local, extreme water flows in the future.

Summer course on hydrological modelling

SMHI provides pan-European water information based on their hydrological model system, E-HYPE (European HYdrological Predictions for the Environment). During the summer, 20 people from six European countries gathered at SMHI to find out more about the model results.

Regional climate models discussed at Lund conference

More than 200 researchers from around the world are meeting this week in Lund to evaluate the recent development of regional climate models. These models have certainly been improved greatly in recent years; they can be refined further to provide even better support for the preparations we must make for future climate change.
