Including Water Management in Large Scale Models

Including Water Management in Large Scale Models

A workshop co-sponsored by GLASS and GHP
Gif-sur-Yvette, France
28-30 September 2016

Join us in Gif-sur-Yvette, France for a workshop on anthropogenic influences on the global water cycle. Convened by the Global Land/Atmosphere System Study Panel (GLASS) and the GEWEX Hydroclimatology Panel (GHP), this meeting will focus on representing the human dimension in land-surface models (LSMs). GLASS and GHP, both GEWEX Panels, have launched a cross-cutting initiative that promotes the inclusion of human processes in LSMs and broadens GEWEX’s current consideration of anthropogenic influences. You can read more about the initiative here, in the November issue of GEWEX News.

Workshop attendance is limited to 50 participants, and registration is now closed.
