Project Description

Short Description

1. Background

The recent accumulation of extreme hydrological events in Bavaria and Québec has stimulated scientific and also societal interest. In addition to the challenges of an improved prediction of such situations and the implications for the associated risk management, there is as yet no confirmed knowledge whether and how climate change contributes to the magnitude and frequency of hydrological extreme events and how regional water management could adapt to the corresponding risks. The ClimEx project thus investigates the effects of climate change on meteorological and hydrological extreme events and implications for water management in Bavaria and Québec.

2. ClimEx Modules

ClimEx is designed as a module based system and currently comprehends 3 modules:
