Susanna Werth has a joint appointment in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the School of Geological Sciences and Urban Planning. Her research interests are focused on the time-dependent Earth's gravity field, hydrology, terrestrial water cycle and resources management, interaction of water, climate, environment and human societies as well as signal processing. She engages in monitoring, modeling and forecasting the Earth's water mass budget variations using remote sensing data.
Related efforts include the following:
- Enhancing techniques for monitoring water mass budget variations, with a focus on gravity and deformation data
- Obtaining and analyzing large-scale estimates of temporal changes in continental water mass budget
- Investigating impact of changes in water availability on environment, human societies as well as crisis management
