SWaHy SWaHy is a thematic working group involving scientists from several institutions.

These pages are meant to inform about selected research activities of the SWaHy partners.
The research is focused on the role of local vadose zone processes in the hydrological system of a small headwater basin. Special attention is paid to the soil water dynamics and the surface runoff formation.
