  • Summer course on hydrological modelling

    SMHI provides pan-European water information based on their hydrological model system, E-HYPE (European HYdrological Predictions for the Environment). During the summer, 20 people from six European countries gathered at SMHI to find out more about the model results. The course focused on hydrological modelling of continental Europe and the participants learned about the assumptions behind ...

  • Prize to article in Hydrology Research

    Researchers at SMHI received the award for the best article in the journal Hydrology Research. The article describes how information from climate simulations can be adapted to develop scenarios for water flow and water balance in a future climate. The journal "Hydrology Research" is the official journal of the Nordic Association for ...

  • Hydrological history improves understanding

    Once lost in the mists of time, the colonial hydrology of the northeast US has been reconstructed by a team of geoscientists, biological scientists and social scientists. The findings provide a new way of uncovering the hydrology of the past and will lead to a better understanding of hydrologic systems now and in the future, the scientists say. The results, which extend as far back as the year ...

  • A hydrological network for open source codes under development

    Considerable interest is being shown in hydrological models with open source codes, which users are free to continue developing. The Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute’s (SMHI) hydrological model HYPE is being developed with open source codes so that researchers all over the world will be able to develop models in cooperation. A network has also been built around the source ...

  • Farming practices have large-scale hydrological impacts

    A recent study using 100 years of archive data on the Mississippi river from water treatment plants found startling results: both the hydrology and chemistry of the river have changed and the most likely cause is changes in farming practices. Most worryingly, the data show an increase in the volume of water discharged into the Gulf of Mexico from the Mississippi river basin, one of the largest in ...

  • Hydrological drought amplifies wildfires in Borneo’s humid tropics

    The area of wildfires in Borneo during drought years turns out to be ten times larger than during non-drought years, an international research team reports in Nature Climate Change of this week. The fires recurrently affecting Borneo’s humid tropical ecosystems have negative influence on the biodiversity and lead to large CO2 emissions, affecting atmospheric composition and regional climate ...

  • Successful start for Hydrological Open Source Community

    The HYPE Open Source Community is now open to anyone interested in hydrology, for cooperative code development. The community was successfully launched recently. The international community for developing hydrological computational models is gaining momentum, and several teams from around the world have also chosen to use SMHI’s hydrological calculation model HYPE. So far around ...

  • Hydrological changes imperil world`s poorest regions, say water experts

    Modern agriculture and land-use practices may lead to major disruptions of the world’s water flows, with potentially sudden and dire consequences for regions least able to cope with them, researchers at the Stockholm University-affiliated Stockholm Resilience Centre and McGill University have warned. In a paper published April 1 in the journal Trends in Ecology and Evolution, Dr. Line J. Gordon ...

  • Water hits and sticks: findings challenge a century of assumptions about soil hydrology

    Researchers have discovered that some of the most fundamental assumptions about how water moves through soil in a seasonally dry climate such as the Pacific Northwest are incorrect -- and that a century of research based on those assumptions will have to be reconsidered. A new study by scientists from Oregon State University and the Environmental Protection Agency showed -- much to the surprise ...
