Presentation

At present, and mostly because it shares seasonally alternating hydrological processes characteristic of wet and dry basins, Mediterranean mountain area hydrology is still much less understood than the hydrology of more temperate or drier environments. The research conducted by the Surface Hydrology and Erosion Group is oriented to the study of the hydrological dynamics of Mediterranean areas through a multidisciplinary and multiple-scale approach. Several aspects of the hydrological cycle are investigated, using mostly the Vallcebre Research Catchments (NE Spain) as a field laboratory to observe, quantify and model hydrological processes at the plot and catchment scale. Investigations are related to rainfall interception, evapotranspiration, rainfall-runoff dynamics and runoff processes, erosion and sediment dynamics, hydrological modelling, soil hydrodynamics, and hydrological changes in a Global Change context.
