18.08.2016 | Interview | Water balance in Central Asia „Many hydrological questions are unsolved“

From 2009 to 2016, Dr. Doris Düthmann worked as a scientist at the GFZ in the section Hydrology. During her PhD study, she focused on the hydrological modeling of water catchments in Central Asia. She has now moved to the Technical University of Vienna, Austria, where her research work will concentrate on the performance of hydrological models under climatic changes.



17.08.2016 | Simulation shows glacier retreat and decreasing water resources for Northwest China

The Tarim Basin in Northwest China is a region characterized by an extremely arid climate. Its population – more than ten million people – is supplied with fresh water by the Tarim, the region’s main river. The river is largely fed from the surrounding glaciated mountain regions. Knowledge on the impact of future climate change on the glaciers and rivers of these mountain areas therefore is of great importance for regional water supply.
