  • Characterization of the study sites, collection and access to geophysical and remote sensing data
  • Integration of advanced field monitoring techniques, remote sensing analyses and retrievals, climate models auditing and integrated hydrologic modeling
  • Socioeconomic factor assessment and integration into a new conceptual framework
  • Development of a GIS-integrated risk assessment tool for adaptive water resource management
