8th GEWEX Open Science Conference: Extremes and Water on the Edge

Dates: 6-11 May 2018
Location: Canmore, Alberta, Canada
Extended Abstract Submission Deadline: Abstract submission closed!

The 2018 GEWEX Open Science Conference is structured around the topic of challenges confronting our ability to understand and predict changes in climate extremes and the availability of freshwater under the complex factors of natural variability, forced climate change due to human activities, and human management practices such as dams, reservoirs, land cover changes, and agricultural management. The Conference will reflect research activities that advance the main themes of the GEWEX project and of the two WCRP Grand Challenges on “Weather and Climate Extremes” and “Water for the Food Baskets of the World.” Find the full list of sessions here.

11th HyMeX Workshop

Dates: 29 May-2 June 2018
Location: Lecce, Italy
Abstract Submission Deadline: 16 February 2018

The general objective of the HyMeX Workshop is to present and discuss recent scientific progress in the understanding of the Mediterranean water cycle, from multiscale and multidisciplinary approaches, and to foster further collaborations within the HyMeX community.

The 11th HyMeX workshop will be organized along the HyMeX science topics: heavy precipitation, Mediterranean cyclones, ocean circulation and processes, drought and water resources, flash-floods and social vulnerability, integrated prediction of heavy precipitation and impacts, the water cycle, and renewable energy.

Special INARCH Issue of Earth System Science Data

Extended Submission Deadline: 6 April 2018

This special issue will be open to all submissions within its scope. There is an international need to improve the understanding and modeling of mountain snow and ice hydrological processes. This has prompted 40 scientists, operating 23 mountain research catchments around the world, to launch a new GEWEX Hydroclimate Panel Cross-cut Project – INARCH, the International Network for Alpine Research Catchment Hydrology.

This mountain hydrology data publication special issue will compile data from mountain catchments around the world in one central repository to the benefit of global alpine hydrological research. The editors will entertain papers on cold regions catchments in comparative studies with mountain catchments.

Special Issue on “Remote Sensing in Hydrological Modelling” in Hydrology

Submission Deadline: 30 June 2018

Aaron Boone and Catherine Ottlé, guest editors for a special issue of Hydrology on “Remote Sensing in Hydrological Modelling,” invite you to submit an article on this topic. The article may be either a full paper or a communication based on your own research in this area, or may be a focused review article on some aspect of the subject.

Hydrology (ISSN 2306-5338, is an open access journal. All submissions will be subject to peer review. If you plan to submit a review article, please provide us with a title and brief description at your earliest convenience, in order to avoid multiple reviews covering the same material

For more information about the Special Issue, please see

For information on manuscript preparation and related matters, please see the instructions for authors,

Although the deadline for submission of manuscripts to the Special Issue is 30 June 2018, Aaron and Catherine would appreciate hearing from you in the next few weeks whether you would be willing to submit a contribution. Please feel free to contact the assistant editor ( if you have any questions.

Dates: 16-18 October 2018
Location: Guayaquil, Ecuador
Abstract Submission Deadline: Unknown

This conference strives to review progress on the science of ENSO with a focus on examining the range of ENSO “flavors,” assessing the existence of possible and distinct precursors, and examining how the different oceanic and atmospheric processes that drive the different ENSO flavors and impact their predictability would vary in a warming world. More information to come.
