Mauro A. Werder is starting a postdoc at Simon Fraser University, Canada, having just finished his PhD at the Laboratory of Hydraulics, Hydrology and Glaciology (VAW) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. The focus of his thesis were the hydraulic and hydrologic aspects of the glacier dammed lake outburst floods of Gornersee in the Swiss Alps. He investigated the lake drainages during four field seasons with tracer experiments and other accompanying hydrologic measurements and interpreted them with hydraulic models of the glacial drainage system.
