GHP Global Data Centers

There are several Global Data Centers that collect and circulate hydrologically important data.

 

Global Precipitation Climatology Center (GPCC)

The main objective of the GPCC is monitoring and assessment of global precipitation on the Earth’s land surface based on rain gauge-measurements, thereby contributing to GEWEX (GHP and GDAP) and to GCOS.

 

Global Runoff Data Center (GRDC)

The main objective of the GRDC is the world-wide acquisition, storage, and dissemination of historical river discharge data in support of the predominantly water and climate related programs and projects of the United Nations (UN), their specialized agencies and the scientific research community.

 

International Data Centre on Hydrology of Lakes and Reservoirs (HYDROLARE)

HYDROLARE is continuing to work on collection and analysis of data on hydrology of lakes and reservoirs obtained from the WMO members.
