Where:
DWD / CM SAF
Offenbach
Germany

The Workshop on global precipitation monitoring in a joint European effort marks the restart of a workshop series which was jointly hosted by DWD and EUMETSAT Satellite Application Facility on Climate Monitoring (CM SAF) in Offenbach, Germany between 2014 and 2017. The objective of the earlier workshop series was to assess the feasibility to generate a satellite-based global precipitation climate data record (CDR) and to consolidate scientific and technical questions regarding the major building blocks of such a precipitation CDR. It was and still is consensus that this is a major endeavour and needs to be pursued in a joint European effort.

The workshop in March 2024 brings together experts in the field and aims at defining priorities on future efforts and (new) cooperations. It is also an element of topical workshops organized by CM SAF to address various aspects regarding the Earth’s energy and water cycles.

The focus of the workshop will be on the following application areas associated with the use of precipitation data:

1) Climate monitoring and climate services,

2) Hydrology and the Earth’s water cycle,

3) Extremes,

4) (Climate) model evaluation.
