Third Space for Hydrology Workshop

Third Space for Hydrology Workshop

The European Space Agency, in the context of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) programme element, and CNES are organising a sequel event to Hydrospace2007 held at WMO, called 3rd Space for Hydrology Workshop –

“Surface Water Storage and Runoff: Modeling, In-Situ data and Remote Sensing”,
Tuesday 15 – Thursday 17 September 2015, hosted at  ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy.

The deadline for abstract submission is until 15 May 2015.

The main objectives of the workshop are to prepare for the
exploitation of the next generation of altimeters, to bring together
hydrologists, model developers and in-situ data analysts, and space
scientists in order to tackle the future challenges in the hydrology
of surface water storage and runoff. Round table discussions are
planned to address key questions such as:

• “What are the key science questions ahead?”
• What are the challenges and how to address them?
• What aspects of surface water observation and modelling are
sufficiently mature for use in operational services? From Research and
Development to Operational Use of remote sensing information in
hydrological applications and water resources Management… how do we go
from here?
• How to strengthen the collaboration between the three communities:
in-situ, modelling and space observation scientists?

The expected outcome of the workshop is to define an action plan for
the future and converge on recommendations from the Scientific
