The INARCH 5th Annual Workshop (by invitation only)

Mar 31 - Apr 1, 2020 | Benasque, Spain

INARCH is a network of scientists studying alpine research catchment hydrology around the world and has the overall objective to better understand alpine cold regions hydrological processes, improve their prediction, and find consistent measurement strategies.
The fifth annual workshop will address activities, progress, and plans towards its overall objective and its research questions relating to alpine hydrology and will follow on from 2019 WMO High Mountain Summit.

The workshop will involve a scoping of activities in various parts of the world:

  • What is the state of observations including remote sensing advances and what is new near or on the ground?
  • What is the state of and prospects for coupling atmospheric, cryospheric and hydrological models?
  • How close are we to integrated OP systems in mountain regions around the world and what are the steps to get there?

INARCH will have reached the end of its initial 5-year term as a GEWEX GHP cross-cut project, and so this workshop will provide the chance to wrap up and summarize outcomes and plan for the future.
