2 Data projects and centers under the GEWEX umbrella

3 HE

4 Regional Hydroclimate Projects

5 Global Model NWPCs/ACs NCEP,JMA ECPC,BoM UKMO,CMC ECMWF CPTEC NCMWF EPSON MET GMAO GLDAS Regional Model Land Surface Model/LDAS HAPHAP extreme webs aerosol isotope cross- cutting monsoon cold semi-arid high- elevation Reference Sites River basins NCAR/EOL WDC-C MPI-M Satellite data CEOS JAXA NASA ESA NOAA EUMETSAT WGISS WGCV UT&JAXA DATA INTEGRATION & ANALYSIS Distributed System WTF-CEOP Centralized System U. Tokyo Global Dataset Projects Societal Benefits A Project of Projects

6 CEOP-HE interactions with other working groups 1) Direct pressure (elements that have a direct influence on HE site) AEROSOL (Direct influence on local climate) MAHASRI (Direct influence of monsoon climate) EXTREMES (Hydrogeological sensitivity of HE regions 2) Factors (elements that characterize HE region) SARS (HE region have often arid conditions) WEBS (Importance of HE regions in hydrological balance study) 3) Case study (representative of HE conditions) CPPA (North America mountains study) 4) Cross study (WG that are related to all the others) MAC (Modelling analysis) SHARE-Asia (Himalayas mountains study)

7 North America Europe Continental South East Asia Oceania Africa Insular South East Asia South America Far East Asia (including Tibetan Plateau Antarctica Mountains and Mountain Forests Russian Federation Middle East & Central Asia Australia Central America Caribbean

8 Mountains and Mountain Forests

9 31.8 % of mountainous terrain 7.6 % of continental surface

11 84% Mountainous Terrain (Excluding Antartica)

12 84% Mountainous Terrain (Excluding Antartica)

14 Objectives 1.establish a coordinated activity amongst high altitude climate monitoring stations a. create a sub-network of high altitude monitoring stations including CEOP Phase II reference stations b. create an electronic archive of these stations c. provide QA/QC protocols for high altitude station installation and data management 2. improve our understanding of water and energy cycles in high elevation regions by studying their role within the climate system, using a. remote sensing observations c. models analysis and application 3. help improve the quality of life of the populations living at high altitude or depending on resources from high altitude a.improve the management of water resources, building synergies between meteorological-climate and hydrological studies; b.improve the forecast capabilities of extreme weather events at high altitudes c.raise awareness on the links between environment, economics and socitety
