How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
The availability of freshwater is highly influenced by climate change, extreme climate events and by anthropogenic use. Countries where a large part of the population depends on the agricultural sector, such as South Africa, are strongly affected by changes in climate, which emphasizes that water is an essential source for food production and drink...

Observations of changes in terrestrial water storage (TWS) obtained from the satellite mission GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) have frequently been used for water cycle studies and for the improvement of hydrological models by means of calibration and data assimilation. However, due to a low spatial resolution of the gravity field m...

The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) mission ended its operation in October 2017 and the GRACE Follow-On mission was launched only in May 2018, leading to approximately one year of data gap. Given that GRACE-type observations are exclusively providing direct estimates of Total Water Storage Change (TWSC), it would be very important t...
Poster
To study how the water cycle changes over time, satellite and airborne remote sensing missions are typically employed. Over the last 40 years of satellite missions, the measurement of true water inventories stored in sea and land ice within the cryosphere have been significantly hindered by uncertainties introduced by snow cover. Being able to dete...

Project
The primary goals are: (1) develop a multi-observation ensemble-based calibration and data assimilation (C/DA) methodology to combine observational data of model output variables (time series of gauge-based streamflow, GRACE/GRACE-FO total water storage variations, remotely-sensed extent and level of surface water bodies, snow cover, glacier mass change and streamflow) with hydrological models in an optimal manner. (2) exploit this methodology with the global hydrological model WaterGAP to provide an improved quantitative assessment of freshwater fluxes and storages including their uncertainties in response to climate and anthropogenic forcing. To reach these goals, nine partners work together, collaborating with two Mercator fellows. The Goethe University Frankfurt and the University of Bonn coordinate the project.
