RHP Library

The GEWEX Hydroclimatology Panel’s Regional Hydroclimate Projects (RHPs) focus on the weather, climate, and hydrology of a geographical area. There have been many RHPs throughout GEWEX’s existence, and though not yet comprehensive, this page contains some documentation such as white papers and science plans of current and past RHPs.

Many RHPs hold annual meetings, and reports of these meetings from RHPs past and present can be found on the GHP Reports page under “Working Group Meetings and Workshops.”

Current RHPs

Completed RHPs

African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analyses (AMMA) Phase 1: A comprehensive study of the West African monsoon

The Baltic Sea Experiment (BALTEX): a 20-year research project in the Baltic Sea region

Changing Cold Regions Network (CCRN): a program to predict changing land, ecosystems, water, and climate, and their interactions and feedbacks over western Canada’s cold interior

Climate Prediction Project for the Americas (CPPA): an integrated research program to improve operational intraseasonal to interannual climate and hydrologic forecasting in the Americas

GEWEX Asian Monsoon Experiment (GAME): an initiative to improve understanding of the role of the Asian monsoon in the global energy and water cycle and improving the simulation and seasonal prediction of Asian monsoon patterns and regional water resources

GEWEX Americas Prediction Project (GAPP): developing an improved capability to make seasonal to annual forecasts through better land surface and hydrologic modeling

GEWEX Continental-scale International Project (GCIP): a project to improve understanding and modeling on a continental scale the coupling between the atmosphere and the land surface hydrologic processes for climate prediction purposes

Large-Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment in Amazonia (LBA): an international research initiative to create the knowledge needed to understand the climatological, ecological, biogeochemical, and hydrological functioning of Amazonia

La Plata Basin (LPB): a collaborative continental scale experiment on the climatology and hydrology of the La Plata Basin

The Canadian Mackenzie GEWEX Study (MAGS): a program that focused on understanding and modeling the flows of energy and water into and through the atmospheric and hydrological systems of the Mackenzie River basin

Monsoon Asian Hydro-Atmosphere Scientific Research and Prediction Initiative (MAHASRI): a project to establish a hydro-meteorological prediction system, particularly up to the seasonal timescale, through better scientific understanding of Asian monsoon variability

Northern Eurasia Earth Science Partnership Initiative (NEESPI): an initiative to create an international, large-scale, interdisciplinary program aimed at developing a better understanding of the interactions between the terrestrial ecosystem, the atmosphere, and human dynamics in Northern Eurasia
