Hydroclimatology Research Group


Welcome to the homepage of the Hydroclimatology Research Group at POSTECH.

We strive to elevate the resilience of our society to hydroclimatic extremes and changes, pursuing research interests across the scales (catchment- to global-scale) and disciplines (hydrology, climatology, hydraulics, and social psychology). The detailed description of the research interests are in the Research Projects page. However, we always keep an eye open on new research collaboration opportunities. If you are interested in our past and current projects, please feel free to contact us.

We are pursuing the integrity in our scholarly works, the ownership of our intellectual properties, and the citizenship as a member of our group and community.
