Humboldt Research Fellow Dr. Animesh Gain zu Gast am GFZ.

Dr. Animesh Gain, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, is visiting Humboldt Research Fellow at GFZ section Hydrology, holding a Georg Foster research grant.

At GFZ Dr. Gain will investigate the effects of climate change and anthropogenic impact on the hydrologic regime of the lower Brahmaputra river in Asia. A special focus is on his home country of Bangladesh, one of the countries most affected by climate change. For this purpose he will develop consistent scenarios of future climate change under consideration of potential developments in the upper Brahmaputra catchment area, like the building of dams. The effects of climate change on the hydrologic regime will be modelled with large scale scenarios. In a further step, social and ecologic impacts of the alteration of the hydrologic regime will be quantified. Results will serve as a solid base for a future-oriented and sustainable water management in the Brahmaputra catchment area.
