H011:
Advances in Integrated Observations, Modeling and Predictions for Weather, Climate and Impact Assessments





Session ID#: 25204

Session Description:
Improved observational, modeling and prediction systems are essential for assessing vulnerability leading to water security issues. In that regard, atmospheric and terrestrial processes and their long-term interactions need to be understood to better support policies on water management. Additionally, the development of new technologies and strategies to improve the collection and distribution of observations is central for adaptation and mitigation of the impacts from severe weather events to climate extremes.        

Contributions are invited that demonstrate the use of observations and models in addressing extreme hydrometeorological events. Experts in developing observational and information systems are invited to discuss ways to increase their effectiveness.  In particular, presentations on advances being made in integrating observations from various sources, such as citizen weather observer programs, are welcome. Educators and students involved in outreach and extension programs on Earth observing systems for weather, climate and hydrological studies are also invited to contribute to this session.
