GEWEX Integrated Product Workshop
Land surface – Atmosphere Interctions from Global Water and Energy Perspective

Mar 16 - 18, 2020 | Toledo, Spain

****** POSTPONED ******
These pages will be updated when new information becomes available



Objective

The workshop seeks to better understand the uses and limitations of the newly released GEWEX Global, 1 degree, 3-hourly Integrated Water and Energy products for use in understanding land surface – atmosphere interactions. By examining the relationship between surface properties (including temperature, moisture, and albedo) with estimated surface fluxes, the boundary layer, convection and the movement of energy, the workshop seeks to both assess the overall consistency of the GEWEX integrated product, as well as identify additional parameters that should be included in the product going forward. Talks are expected to address the consistency both from the global satellite perspective, as well as existing ground based measurement sites such as ARM that can shed additional light on critical processes at a local scale. Talks that highlight the benefit of adding particular datasets to the Integrated product for new process insight are also welcomed.

Specific outcome

A letter to funding agencies advising them of potential new fruitful research related to integrated land surface – atmosphere process studies.

Venue

The workshop will be held at the Lorenzana Palace Auditorium (Paraninfo) and Historical Library. Universidad de Castilla – La Mancha in Toledo, Spain.
