Hydro-Climatology Research Group


Welcome to the homepage of the Hydroclimatology Research Group at POSTECH. Please follow the NEWS about our research group activities and visit other web pages: Group Members, Research Projects, Publications, Photos, and Archive.

Hydroclimatology@POSTECH is currently looking for highly motivated graduate applicants.

Potential topics are 1) drought mechanisms, risk, and predictability, 2) large-scale land surface modeling with a focus on anthropogenic processes (dam and irrigation), 3) hydrodynamical modeling with unmanned boat-based river bathymetry surveys, and 4) socio-hydrology with a focus on the dynamics of social response (potential triggers and growth and decay patterns) during emerging water-related disasters.

Dr. Kam gave an oral presentation about the attribution study of the 2020/21 Iran drought, which was published in Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (JIF: 9.116 and Rank: 6/94 (Meteorology & Atmospheric Sciences)).

This work assessed the relative contribution of greenhouse gas-only and natural-only forcing to the risk of 2020/21-like Iran droughts, using the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6 (CMIP6). This study was released in a BAMS special issue, "Explaining Extreme Events of 2021 and 2022 from a Climate Perspective".
