3rd ANDEX Workshop

Apr 21 - 24, 2019 | Quito, Ecuador

ANDEX is a prospective Regional Hydroclimate Project (RHP) of the GEWEX Hydroclimatology Panel (GHP). It aims to improve our understanding and prediction of climate and hydrology along the Andes cordillera.

The objective of the third ANDEX Meeting is to assess the advancement of the White Book, entitled “ANDEX – A Regional Hydroclimate Project (RHP) on the Andes. Scientific Context, Challenges and Opportunities” with the lead auditors of the different chapters. After an in-depth review on the status of the White Book, a timeline was defined with the first version of the book chapters prepared for peer-review on September 1, 2019.

The general consensus among the participants after this third workshop is that ANDEX is advancing at a good pace towards its establishment as a full GEWEX RHP. Ever since its inception in 2017, the ANDEX core group has identified and engaged a broad, diverse research network of scientists working in the seven Andean countries and relevant groups in North America and Europe.
