Climate change and hydrology are highly linked. At the department of Physical Geography and Ecosystems Science we are studying the impact of climate change on hydrology, vegetation, and exchange of greenhouse gases. Tools to do this are e.g. GIS, remote sensing, and ecosystem modelling. Now we want to extend the research to semi-arid environments, e.g. in the Middle East, and together with the Centre for Middle Eastern studies at Lund University start a project involving a PhD student.
