Teknisk vattenresurslära bedriver forskning om hur vatten uppehåller sig och transporteras i naturen och i stadens system.
Vi forskar om regnvattnets rörelser genom mark och grund och hur regn och smältvatten når floder, om översvämningar och om hur system kan utformas för att konsekvenser av översvämningar skall begränsas, om strömning, föroreningsspridning och erosion längs hav, floder och sjöar.
Vi arbetar också med Integrerad Förvaltning och Planering, det vill säga hur olika sektorer i samhället måste samverka för att hitta optimala lösningar på olika vattenrelaterade utmaningar. Verksamheten har starkt internationell prägel i samarbete med ett stort antal forskare och projekt runt om i världen.

Michael is currently, Senior consultant (Chefconsulent) within hydrology and flooding with the Research and Development Department of the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI). Prior to this Michael was R&D program manager for Water Resources and Head of Innovation for Water Resources & Land Management for DHI, Denmark.
Michael B Butts has a first class honours degree in Physics from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, and MSc & PhD degrees in Civil Engineering from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
Michael has more than 25 years’ of quite comprehensive experience in hydrology, and a very broad range of research interests as a result. His experience includes hydrological and geophysical fieldwork, hydrological data analysis, network design and application of hydrological databases. He has developed and applied integrated models (surface- and groundwater) in water resources, flooding, urban hydrology, eco-hydrology and water quality management applications. He has managed, designed and delivered novel, decision support tools within flood forecasting, nitrate management, climate change & adaptation and water resource planning.
Other research activities include the application of remote sensing from weather radar, satellites and UAV’s in water resources modelling and management. His international experience encompasses water resources and flood management projects in the United States, Bangladesh, India, Hong Kong, China, Central America, Chile, Poland and the United Kingdom. He has contributed to several research projects related to climate change and have worked on climate change and climate adaptation projects related to water resources and hydropower in India, Denmark, Egypt as well as the entire Nile Basin.
Michael has served as Associate Editor of the Journal of Hydrology (2007-15) and the International Journal of River Basin Management (2015-17) and as member of the Editorial Board, UK (ICE) Water Management Journal (2014-15). He has also served in a number of advisory boards and as external lecturer, (2001-20), at IHE Delft Institute for Water Education, in Holland, teaching catchment hydrological modeling under the Hydroinformatics programme.
