The streamflow data in RHNs are essential for calibration and validation of remote sensing data and climate models, as well as monitoring of trends and changes in the water system. The meeting was chaired by Mr Wright with support from Ms Nancy Westcot and Mr t Denis Stuber, Co-Chairs of the CClExpert Team on Data Rescue and Management.

The agenda for the meeting (see Annex 1) was adopted with no revisions. The meeting agreed on its hours of work and other practical arrangements.

To build a collection of validated data from these stations in standardized formats To provide this information to the global climate community with no formal restriction The following table is the summary for the GCOS Upper-Air Network (GUAN) monitoring against the GCOS minimum requirements (25 daily soundings to 30hPa per month) for each region, according to.

Working as hydrology expert in a Standing Committee, Study Group, or Expert Team is a voluntary contribution freely offered to benefit the global hydrological community. It is normally expected that the cost of participation in a meeting of a Standing Committee, Study Group, or Expert Team is covered by the expert’s institution/country.

the Steering Committee for GCOS reports regularly to SBSTA, on behalf of WMO and the other sponsors of GCOS, on the status of global observing systems for climate. During SB held as part of COP 16 in Cancun, Mexico, GCOS formally introduced the update of the Implementation Plan for the Global Observing System for Climate in Support.

The meeting will bring together innovators and academia on one side, and experts in data management and assimilation from national hydro-meteorological services on the other side, to share experiences and facilitate the integration of new technologies into standard hydrological observing networks.

IMproving PRedictions and management of hydrological EXtremes (IMPREX) was a European Union Horizon project that ran from September to September IMPREX aimed to improve society’s ability to anticipate and respond to future extreme hydrological events in Europe across a variety of uses in the water-related sectors (flood forecasting, drought risk Author: David A.

Lavers, Maria-Helena Ramos, Linus Magnusson, Ilias Pechlivanidis, Bastian Klein, Christel P. This checklist is for National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) to self-assess progress with respect to climate services implementation and identify areas where support is needed.

The checklist refers to the Country-focused results based framework for WMO contribution to the GFCS approved by the 68th WMO Executive Council. 20th WMO/IAEA Meeting on Carbon Dioxide, Other Greenhouse Gases, and Related Measurement Techniques (GGMT) and SAG on Greenhouse Gases Meeting.

GCOS Concept • the WMO observing systems (e.g. WIGOS – GOS, GCW, GAW) • the IOC-led co-sponsored Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) • the FAO-led co-sponsored Global Terrestrial Observing System (GTOS) • observational elements of research programmes (WCRP, IGBP, etc.) • network systems contributing climate observations, data management or products.

In developing and emerging countries, climate data are often of poor quality and do not meet the prerequisites for the provision of climate services for political decision-makers. In Peru and the Andean region, the importance of user-tailored climate services is recognized, but this requires better quality climate observations and more expert.

Litigation Support - Mr. Dutill has spent approximately 30% of his professional time providing expert witness services for over 40 years.

Approximately 50 to 55% of his expert witness services have been for defendants and about 45 to 50% for plaintiffs. He. The Atmospheric, Ocean, and Terrestrial Observation Panel for Climate gather scientific and technical experts in the respective areas to generate inputs from these fields to the climate observing community.

Those expert panels report to the GCOS Steering Committee, and have been established to define the observations needed in each of the main global domains to Abbreviation: GCOS.

GCOS further develops the observing system with regard to improving the scientific understanding, and providing clear information to inform adaptation. The key findings were the gaps highlighted in the global observing system of the hydrological cycle, the degree of accuracy of hydrological models and the techniques of post-processing to correct biases, the origin of seasonal hydrological skill in Europe and user requirements of hydrometeorological forecasts to ensure their appropriate use in.

The Goal is a book designed to influence industry to move toward continuous improvement. First published by Eliyahu Goldratt init has remained a perennial bestseller ever since. It is written in the form of a gripping business novel. UNESCO and partners organized an Africa Regional Web Launch of the World Water Development Report to discuss the entry points for seizing adaptation-mitigation synergies which indicates a growing momentum for climate action in the water sector, as well as the corresponding need for policy decisions, capacity development and investments.

Dear Colleagues, This Special Issue of Atmosphere is dedicated to "Climatological and Hydrological Processes in Mountain Regions". Due to their complex topography and small-scale heterogeneity with respect to many land-surface characteristics (e.g., land cover or soil conditions), climatological and hydrological processes in mountain regions differ from those.
