Jürgen Komma

Jürgen Komma works as a Senior Scientist at the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management, where he studied Civil Engineering and also finished his PhD thesis in 2011.

Research Interests:

  • Hydrologic modelling - identification of model structure and parameters
  • Flood forecasting - uncertainties and data assimilation stratetgies
  • Assessing the value of soil moisture measurements for hydrologic modelling - insitu measurement and remote sensing products
  • Hydrodynamic 1D and 2D simulations of sediment transport processes

Jürgen's research within the ERC project focuses on different modelling aspects. He is mainly interested in runoff processes and floods at the catchment scale.

In his PhD Jürgen focused on  "Process based flood forecasting: Estimation methods and uncertainties".  So far, he has published 10 papers in ISI indexed journals.
