Catchment Hydrology research group at INRAE in Antony

Our research focuses on the development of hydrological models to represent river basin processes (in particular, models for the simulation of the rainfall-runoff relationship), as well as on the development of methodologies for the application of the models in operational hydrology.

Our main scientific and technical objectives are:

  • to develop reliable models for the representation of the hydrological behaviour of catchments (gauged or ungauged catchments),
  • to develop methods to forecast hydrological hazards (floods, droughts) and estimate statistical streamflow descriptors,
  • to evaluate the impacts of global changes (human activities and climate change) in hydrology,
  • to develop methods for transferring tools and methodologies to operational services and engineering consultancy firms in hydrology, adapting them to their different needs.

The team is part of the HYCAR research unit (Continental Hydrosystems – Resources, Risks, Restoration) of the AQUA Department of INRAE.
