Objectives and programme: 
Beyond the general objectives of the HyMeX workshops to strengthen the scientific links, stimulate the exchange of knowledge and promote cooperation among the HyMeX community, the 7th HyMeX workshop will focus on: 

 

  • the review and preliminary results from the Special Observation Periods, 
  • multicompartment, multiscale modelling, 
  • collection and analysis of long-term observations, 
  • human-environment interactions, 
  • cross-cutting activities, 
  • opportunities for future field campaigns. 

 


The programme will consist of plenary oral and poster sessions with an open call for contributions in line with the research objectives of HyMeX Science Plan on:

  • the water budget of the Mediterranean Sea, 
  • the continental hydrological cycle and related water resources, 
  • heavy rainfall, flash-floods and floods, 
  • intense sea-atmosphere interactions induced by strong winds, and dense water formation, 
  • societal and economic impacts. 

 

Authors will be invited to make proposals for parallel sessions at submission time.

HyMeX aims at a better understanding, quantification and modelling of the hydrological cycle in the Mediterranean, with emphasis on the predictability and evolution of extreme weather events, inter-annual to decadal variability of the Mediterranean coupled system, and associated trends in the context of global change.The multidisciplinary research and database developed within HyMeX aim to improve observational and modelling systems, better predict extreme events, simulate the long-term water-cycle, and provide guidelines for adaptation measures.
