›Workshop on Cold Regions Hydrology
A scientific symposium on Cold Regions Hydrology, to be held in Innsbruck, 28-30 April 2010, is organized by the Network of Climate and Cryosphere Research at the University of Innsbruck, ENVEO IT, and the European Space Agency (ESA). The Climate and Cryosphere (CliC) Programme of WCRP is a scientific co-sponsor of the workshop.
The objective of the workshop is to review and assess recent developments in observations and modelling of the water cycle and runoff in regions where contributions by snow and glaciers are essential. The outcome of the workshop shall provide guidance for future developments in observation systems, data assimilation techniques and modelling. The topic of the workshop is relevant to scientific preparations for the Cold Regions Hydrology – High resolution Observatory (CoReH2O) mission presently in Phase-A (feasibility) study at ESA, as well as for use of satellite data in hydrological models in general.
