Hydrological Modeling in Climate Change Studies: Issues and Challenges
This presentation discusses the impact of environment change on hydrological cycle, hydrological processes and hydrological modeling. The talk starts with a review of the history of the hydrological models’ development, the current state and the main challenges. Emphases are then paid to the following issues: the non-stationarity of hydrological processes and the rainfall-runoff relationship, the transferability of hydro- logical models (structure and parameters) across time periods, across spatial regions, across spatial and time scales, and coupling of hydrological models with climate models.

Professor Chong-Yu Xu obtained his Master and PhD Degrees in Hydrology from Free University of Brussels, in 1988 and 1992, respectively. He graduated from Nanjing University in 1982 with a bachelor's degree in surface water hydrology. He is currently Professor of Hydrology at the Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo, Norway. His fields of interest and present research activities focus on Hydrological modelling at global, regional and catchment scales; Regional evapotranspiration and its role in linking climatic and hydrological system; Hydrological impact of climate and environment changes at global, regional and catchment scales, Uncertainty analysis and time series analysis. He serves as adjunct Professor at Uppsala University in Sweden and several universities in China including Nanjing University and Wuhan University. 

He served as Overseas Assessor for the Chinese Academy of Sciences (2000-2005). He has been awarded WMO Research Awards for Young Scientists, and Outstanding Overseas Chinese Scholars Awards, etc. He is currently the Editor for international journal of “Hydrology Research”, and Associate Editor of several journals including “Journal of Hydrology” and “Hydrological Sciences Journal”. He is an author of more than 160 ISI Journal papers with an h-index of 38 in the Web of Science Citation Report, h-index of 48 in google scholar, and a RG-SCORE of 41.48 in Researchgate . He is an Expert reviewer of IPCC WG-I AR5 report and expert reviewer of IPCC WG II AR5 report.
