The overarching goal of this project is to revolutionise our understanding of the fundamental principles that govern water regimes in streams and lakes worldwide. The project will capture the multi-dimensional aspects of global flow regimes (river discharge) and model hydraulics using a wide range of high resolution geo-datasets integrated with gauging station data in a machine learning framework. The preliminary research below lays the foundation for this challenging project.
Stream networks at global level
- High-resolution stream network delineation using digital elevation models: assessing spatial accuracy
- Watershed and stream network delineation using digital elevation models and spectral satellite information
Geomorphometry/Topography/Environmental variables at global level
- Geomorpho90m: Global high-resolution geomorphometry variables for environmental modelling
- A suite of global, cross-scale topographic variables for environmental and biodiversity modelling
- Near-global freshwater-specific environmental variables for biodiversity analyses in 1 km resolution
