Wolfram Mauser works in the fields of hydrology, food security, remote sensing, and Earth System modeling. His major interests are in observing human impacts on Earth from space, the understanding of human-environment relations through simulation, and the impacts of limited water resources and climate change on global as well as regional food security. His book Water Resources: Efficient, Sustainable, and Equitable Use gives insights into integrative approaches towards sustainable future water use. Wolfram received his MS in Physics, MS in Geography, and his PhD in Hydrology from the University of Freiburg, Germany. He was a visiting scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and the University of Maryland and conducted extended research visits to Africa, China, India, and South America. He holds the Chair for Geography and Remote Sensing at LMU and is a member of the advisory board of the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society.
