GHP Meetings and Reports

Many projects within GHP hold meetings throughout the year, and are listed below. You can also find reports from the Panel-wide annual GHP Meetings at the bottom of the page.

Workshop on ANDEX – A Regional Hydrological Program for the Andes

Dates: 4-6 December 2017
Location: Medellin, Colombia

This workshop will explore establishing a Regional Hydroclimate Project (RHP) for the Andes region.

2017 GHP-TPE Meeting

Dates: 17-19 October 2017
Location: Kathmandu, Nepal

The 2017 meeting of the GEWEX Hydroclimatology Panel (GHP) will be held in conjunction with the Third Pole Environment (TPE) project in Kathmandu, Nepal, from 17-19 October 2017.

The 3-day meeting will focus on the progress of observations, analysis, and modeling in the realm of land-atmosphere interactions and global water and energy cycles, with an emphasis on high elevations in Asia. Presentations on surface-atmosphere interactions, the hydrosphere and cryosphere, and climate studies and their social impacts will be given. GHP members will also report on GHP programs such as cross-cutting projects, regional hydroclimate projects, and data centers.

Including Water Management in Large Scale Models

Dates: 28-30 September 2016
Location: CNRS, Gif-sur-Yvette, France

Convened by the Global Land/Atmosphere System Study Panel (GLASS) and the GEWEX Hydroclimatology Panel (GHP), this meeting will focus on representing the human dimension in land-surface models (LSMs). GLASS and GHP, both GEWEX Panels, have launched a cross-cutting initiative that promotes the inclusion of human processes in LSMs and broadens GEWEX’s current consideration of anthropogenic influences.

2016 GHP Meeting

Dates: 3-5 October 2016
Location: Gif-sur-Yvette, France

The goal of the 3-day meeting is to evaluate the ongoing and planned GHP activities to ensure that the GEWEX Hydroclimatology Panel contributes effectively to the leading role that GEWEX plays in the hydrological sciences and related modeling activities. The GEWEX Science Questionsaddressing the WCRP Grand Challenges will be at the heart of the discussions, resulting in improved interactions between the GEWEX RHPs and strengthen their involvement in crosscutting projects.

2nd INARCH Workshop

Dates: 17-19 October 2016
Location: Grenoble, France

This workshop provided a venue to bring scientists together to explore and discuss specific issues in mountain snow and ice hydrology highlighted after the inaugural INARCH workshop in Kananaskis in October 2015.
Three main topics will be covered by the Workshop:
  • Atmospheric downscaling for mountain snow and ice hydrology modeling
  • Availability and suitability of surface observations and spatial observations from mountain observatories and discussion of the mountain observations journal special issue
  • Climate sensitivity numerical experiments – results from numerical diagnostic experiments using the cryospheric and hydrological response of mountain catchments to various representations of a changing climate

3rd PannEx Workshop

Dates: 20-22 March 2017
Location: Cluj-Napoca, Romania

PannEx is a prospective Regional Hydroclimate Project (RHP) of GEWEX centered in the Pannonian basin. This workshop is dedicated to introducing the ongoing and planned research on climate change in extreme weather events and adaptation, sharing experiences in this area and climate-related communication, and discussing potential areas of cooperation with participants from Central and Eastern Europe and other parts of the continent in order to develop future partnerships for research projects in the Pannonian Basin. The workshop is intended to define PannEx’s Science Plan on the results of the discussions during the meeting.
