Description

ECMWF is hosting the H SAF and HEPEX joint workshop on “Satellite inspired hydrology in an uncertain future”, with the following objectives:

  • To review the status of the hydrological variables retrieval algorithms and to prepare future satellites (e.g. METEOSAT Third Generation, METOP‐SG, SWOT)
  • To characterize the hydrological variable accuracy and to discuss requirements and validation metrics 

  • To review the status of modelling and data assimilation for hydrological and NWP applications and to share new ideas
  • To strengthen links between the H SAF and the Risk management, Hydrological and NWP communities to promote a consistent Earth system approach.
