The GEWEX Hydroclimatology Panel (GHP) concentrates on improving our understanding of environmental water and energy exchanges at the regional scale and from an integrated perspective. Addressing the water cycle at the regional scale allows us to better understand the many components of the system, from its physical to economic to social aspects. GHP aims to understand and predict continental to local-scale hydroclimates for hydrologic applications through Regional Hydroclimate and Crosscutting Projects (RHPs and CCs), GHP Networks and Global Data Centers.

The 2024 GHP meeting will be held at Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan, from Wednesday through Friday, 3–5 July 2024, prior to the 9th GEWEX Open Science Conference. The 2024 GHP Meeting is by invitation only. 

This year’s meeting will be used to review the state of the current ongoing actions (RHPs, CCs, Networks and the links with the Data Centers). GHP members and project leads will evaluate ongoing and planned GHP activities and asses future actions 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 Goals and the WCRP Lighthouse Activities 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.
