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

  • Baltic Earth, Earth System Science for the Baltic Sea Region: Science Plan
  • Global Water Futures (GWF): a proposal for a broader RHP in Canada based upon the GWF program
  • HyMeX, science plan for the Hydrological cycle in the Mediterranean Experiment
  • PannEx, a Regional Hydroclimate Project for the Pannonian Basin: White Book
