2017 GHP-TPE Meeting

Oct 17 - 19, 2017 | Kathmandu, Nepal

This year’s meeting of the GEWEX Hydroclimatology Panel (GHP) will be held in conjunction with the Third Pole Environment (TPE) project in Kathmandu, Nepal, from 17-19 October 2017.

The 3-day meeting will focus on the progress of observations, analysis, and modeling in the realm of land-atmosphere interactions and global water and energy cycles, with an emphasis on high elevations in Asia. Presentations on surface-atmosphere interactions, the hydrosphere and cryosphere, and climate studies and their social impacts will be given. GHP members will also report on GHP programs such as cross-cutting projects, regional hydroclimate projects, and data centers.

GHP participants will also evaluate ongoing and planned GHP activities to ensure that the Panel contributes effectively to the leading role that GEWEX plays in the hydrological and climate sciences and related modeling activities. The GEWEX Science Questions and the WCRP Grand Challenges will be at the heart of these discussions, which will result in improved interactions between the GEWEX RHPs and strengthen their involvement in the crosscutting projects.
