Hydrological Sciences

Marit van Tiel

Dr. Marit van Tiel is a postdoctoral researcher at the VAW Glaciology group at ETH Zurich in Switzerland. She researches glacier melt contributions to streamflow at various spatio-temporal scales, and in particular during droughts, using data analyses and glacio-hydrological modeling.

Organizing a Workshop as an ECS: Lessons learned from “Cryosphere-groundwater interactions: a missing link in mountain water research”

Plenary discussion on the outcomes of one of the group discussions on “where does the water go in the glacierized landscape”?

Despite the importance of mountains for downstream water supply, there are large gaps in our scientific understanding of how snow and ice meltwater travels through the landscape, specifically which flowpaths meltwater takes below the surface. Plus, existing knowledge is scattered throughout various sub-disciplines of mountain hydrology: glaciology, snow science, hydrogeology, and surface hydrology ...[Read More]
