Rianne Giesen

Since October 2013 I have worked in the 'Water, Climate and Ecosystems' project within the Sustainability theme of Utrecht University. In this project, researchers from various disciplines within the university worked together to improve the knowledge of the hydrological cycle on Earth. My contribution was to improve the representation of glaciers in the global hydrological model PCR-GLOBWB. This allows for improved estimates of downstream water availability in the past, present and future.
