Land under water – what causes extreme flooding
If rivers overflow their banks, the consequences can be devastating. Using methods of explainable machine learning, researchers at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) have shown that floods are more extreme when several factors are involved in their development.
Europe is not prepared for rapidly growing climate risks
Europe is the fastest warming continent in the world. According to the European Environment Agency’s assessment, many of these risks have already reached critical levels and could become catastrophic without urgent and decisive action.
German-Colombian research collaboration, sparked by award-winning PhD candidate
The Colombia PeatSense Congress in Bogotá, enabled by an award to PhD student Antje Uhde, brought together German and Colombian peatland scientists.
