The WATER area encompasses a thematic arc of various aspects of the water cycle in Alpine regions and possible future climate-induced changes for which appropriate and sustainable adaptation measures must be developed in a timely and trans-disciplinary fashion.

Activities in the WATER area range from the development of innovative risk models and their application in risk analysis to the assessment of technical solutions for flood control, the simulation of melt runoff from snow and ice and its changes over time, the ongoing enhancement of flood forecasting models, and the implementation of methods involving the water footprint of urban areas.
