Hydrology and Climate - H2K

The H2K group within the Department of Geography at UZH is engaged in research and teaching on catchment hydrology and climate impacts on water resources. Our research is based on a combination of experimental field studies and modeling approaches. In our classes we teach hydrology from basic introduction to advanced topics related to our research. Besides lectures and seminars, field courses, hands-on exercises and e-learning play an important role in our teaching
