Women Advancing River Research: Berit Arheimer

The recording for this seminar is now available.


Berit Arheimer is an associate professor of water and environmental studies and head of hydrological research at the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute. Her presentation will mainly focus on the philosophy behind the HYPE (Hydrological Predictions for the Environment) model and its applications for better scientific understanding, predictions, and water management, along with major challenges when linking predictions at global and local scales.

Arheimer's research ranges from local to global scale and embraces many aspects of river flow, such as temporal and spatial predictions, river transport of nutrients, climate change impact on river flow, physiographical controls of river flow generation, and human alteration of water resources. Arheimer is bridging between science and practice with new tools for open data and open science, and she recently advanced operational production systems for water and climate services with numerical modelling for applications in water management. Arheimer has a long record of working with a broad range of users from several societal sectors and is the author of many scientific publications, with an H-index of 35 according to the Web of Science group as of February 2021.

Additional Information:

Lecture begins at 11 a.m. U.S. Eastern time (New York) and will be followed by a question and answer session. Registration is required.
