CONTRATO PREDOCTORAL FPI de 4 años Asociado al proyecto EcoHyMed

Resumen del proyecto EcoHyMed: Ecohidrología de cuencas Mediterráneas de cabecera. Conexiones entre vegetación y respuesta hidrológica en un contexto de cambio global.(CGL2013-­-43418-­-R). El proyecto EcoHyMed tiene como objetivo principal, incorporar el papel de la vegetación en la caracterización del origen y la dinámica de los flujos de agua a escala de cuenca, combinando diferentes aproximaciones metodológicas(monitorización hidrométrica, trazado ambiental con isótopos estables del agua y modelización).

Fluvalps-Iberia Project: Multi-proxy analysis of palaeofloods in mountain regions. Driving factors and impacts in the past, present and future (CGL2013-43716-R)

The Fluvalps-Iberia project aims to generate from a multidisciplinary approach, that includes alluvial sedimentary archives, long reference time series of paleofloods in the Eastern Betic Range, the Swiss Alps and the Northeastern Iberian Peninsula (comparative study area). The detailed analysis of these geoarchives will enlarge the flood series to record low-frequency extreme events. Furthermore, the trends, clusters and gaps detected in the instrumental and documentary time series can be interpreted in the context of millennia and centennial climate changes and variability. In addition, the project investigates the driving factors and effects in the past, present and future. The novelty is the reconstruction of long time series generated not from lake records of small watersheds, but from high-resolution floodplain sediments from interdistributary basins, which reproduce the fluvial dynamic and environment of a medium size basin (between 250 and 600 km2), providing a regional signal that could be influenced by the global climate variability. The robustness of the flood series come from the calibration of different proxies to each other: natural archives (sedimentary, geochemical, pollen, lichen), documentary sources (descriptions of floods, historical buildings and maps) and instrumental (flow, precipitation, temperature), cataloging atmospheric synoptic types from grids and correlations with climate reference records. This approach aims to identify more precisely the cyclic pattern, mechanisms and driving forces (orbital, solar, climate, volcanic and land use) by statistical processing of the generated time series and also of paleoclimatic reference records.
