Alpine Hydrology in Val Ferret (Swiss Alps). This year's summer campaign is about to start.
20.07.12 The article, published in 2011, outlines a criterion for accurate high frequency measurements of turbulent flows and has been selected as one of the best articles published in Measurement Science ...
06.07.12 The meteorological Raman LIDAR (RALMO) in Payerne - developped jointly by EFLUM and Meteoswiss - is automatically probing the sky and acquiring regular temperature, humidity and aerosol profiles.
Our group teaches and does research in hydrology and fluid mechanics in the environment. Most MS and PhD research projects involve some combination of field observations and computational simulations. Current areas of focus include large-eddy simulations over complex terrain, the development of lidar and wireless sensor networks to probe the atmospheric boundary layer, watershed hydrology and the formulation of evaporation and heat transfer into the atmosphere. Field experiments for 2011 include studies of snow physics at the Plaine Morte glacier, ecohydrological studies in Burkina Faso and alpine hydrology in the Val Ferret.
