Joint IPWG-GDAP Precipitation Assessement Published

The International Precipitation Working Group (IPWG) and the GEWEX Data and Analysis Panel (GDAP) have released the Joint IPWG-GDAP Precipitation Assessement. This comprehensive report reviews the current state of precipitation products, and includes assessments of sub-daily global satellite precipitation products, discussions of various climate applications of precipitation products, and deliberations on emerging directions and the future of precipitation products. You can find the full report at https://doi.org/10.13021/gewex.precip.

New GEWEX-WGNE Model Comparison Study on Orographic Processes

Read about the new model comparison activity on orographic processes, operating under the framework of GEWEX’s Global Atmospheric System Studies (GASS) Panel and the Working Group on Numerical Experimentation (WGNE), at https://www.ecmwf.int/…/complex-mountains-and-their-effects…. COORDE is based on a study by Annelize van Niekerk, Irina Sandu, and Simon Vesper, and will look at the differences in orographic drag parametrizations across models. If you’d like to participate, contact Annelize van Niekerk or Irina Sandu.


The International Soil Modeling Consortium (ISMC) CROSS panel is searching for participants from the GEWEX community. The CROSS scientific panel develops and evaluates interdisciplinary concepts where healthy soil function plays a crucial role through collaboration with several scientific disciplines, bridging environmental science and socio-cultural approaches. CROSS aims to impact both science and society by innovation through its focus on soil science and its applicability to other fields. CROSS aims to realize this by: 1) acting as an exchange platform with other international panels like AGMIP and GEWEX-SoilWat; 2) defining a common vocabulary between scientific (sub)disciplines in order to develop exchange protocols; 3) establishing the conceptual bases needed to promote exchanges with other disciplines (climate research, hydrology, biology, and geology and the socio-economic sciences); 4) publishing papers in journals relevant to stress the importance of soil modeling for tackling key issues; 5) setting up multi-disciplinary working teams in grant proposals, such as H2020; and 6) advertising the existence of this panel at international meetings. If the CROSS panel and its aims appeal to you and you would like to participate, please email martine.vanderploeg@wur.nl and/or mathieu.javaux@uclouvain.be.
