Prosjekter / Current projects:

  • GlobalHydroPressure. Model-based global assessment of hydrological pressure. Funded by Research Council of Norway and European Union Water JPI programme Water challenges for a changing world. 2019–2021
  • Jostice. Natural and societal consequences of climate-forced changes of Jostedalsbreen Ice Cap. Funded by the Research Council of Norway programme KLIMAFORSK. 2020–2023

Verv / Commissions:

  • 2010: Member of scientific committee for review of the Swedish integrated model system for Hydrology, Oceanography and Meteorology for the Environment (HOME). The HOME model system simulates water flows and substances on their way from precipitation through soils, river and lakes to river outlets for all water bodies and coastal zones surrounding Sweden. HOME is composed of a Multiscale Atmospheric Transport and Chemistry Model (MATCH), a model for Hydrological Predictions in the Environment (HYPE), the Swedish Coastal and Ocean Biogeochemical Model (SCOBI), and an equation solver Program for Boundary Layers (PROBI) which simulates the temporal variation of stratification and mixing in ocean sub-basins. All models have been developed at the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute.
  • 2007–2010: Member of scientific committee for Arctic-HYDRA International Polar Year consortium. The Arctic Hydrological Cycle Monitoring, Modelling and Assessment Programme, Science and Implementation Plan. Project performed with support from the international bodies WMO, AMAP, ICARP-II, WCRP CliC, Global Runoff Data Centre with the purpose to quantify environmental change and level of consolidation of this change in the Arctic.
  • 2004–2014:  Lecturer at the University Centre in Svalbard, Norway. Topics: Hydrological modelling. Climate change impacts on water resources in Arctic environments. Time series analysis and other statistical methods.
