About the Hydrology Research unit

 

SMHI has a long tradition of operational hydrological modelling including forecasts of water discharge, fire hazard, design of dams and dam regulation routines, flood risk, water quality and substance transport and the effects of climate change on hydrology and water quality.

The Hydrology Research unit is engaged in numerous research projects, commissioned work and continuous development of the SMHI work-flow for hydrological forecasts and assessments. The work is often user-driven and performed in collaboration with external partners in Sweden, Europe or other parts of the world. In addition, we produce Open Data from our computational systems and Open Source Codes for hydrological modelling.

 

At present we mainly address the following challenges:
