Professorship for hydro-gravimetry

As of 1st of January, Andreas Güntner, GFZ section 5.4 'hydrology', holds a professorship for hydro-gravimetry in a joint appointment with the University of Potsdam.

Prof. Güntner's research interests are in the field of multi-scale process research in hydrology, combining field measurements, satellite data and simulation models. A focus of his research is on linking methods of geodesy and hydrology. Monitoring the variations of the Earth's gravity in time either on the ground (with gravimeters) or from space (with the GRACE satellites and follow-on missions) allow for assessing changes in continental water storage and, thus, on impacts of climate variability and human activities on the water cycle.

After research stays in Brazil, Prof. Güntner received his PhD in the field of geo-ecology/hydrology at Potsdam University in 2002. Since 2003, he is a scientist at GFZ and leads the working group Quantification of the Water Cycle.
