Urban Water Footprint: a new approach for water management in urban areas


from 14th to 17th July 2014 – The Hague, The Netherlands

The increasing demand for fresh water and the impacts of climate change on water availability and extreme events highlight why water is a current major global concern and is “Trending Now.” The 7th International Scientific Conference on the Global Water and Energy Cycle will celebrate 25 years of GEWEX research and set the stage for the next phase of research addressing the World Climate Research Programme Grand Challenges on water resources, extremes, and climate sensitivity through observations and data sets, their analyses, process studies, model development and exploitation, applications, technology transfer to operational results, and research capacity development and training for the next generation of scientists.

Conference topics:
• Advancing climate system knowledge through new observations and field experiments
• Advances in analysis of observations, reanalysis and model results to improve energy and water cycle processes
• Modeling, predicting, and attributing climate extremes
• Observations and changes in climate extremes
• Progress and challenges for predicting monsoon precipitation
• Characterizing, validating, and improving the water cycle in models
• Analyzing, validating, and improving global precipitation products
• Use of climate information and predictions in hydrology and water resources management
• Land Surface Model benchmarking and development
• The role of land parameters (and land cover change) on weather and climate prediction
• High resolution hydrological processes, including sub-surface waters, in land surface models
• Modeling anthropogenic impacts of land-water-management in Land Surface Models
• Data-assimilation in land surface and hydrological models
• Biosphere, water, carbon, and the climate system
• New satellite observations for water cycle research and their utility in Land Surface Model development
• Cold season precipitation and projected changes in snow from observations, models, and reanalyses
• Hydrology of high elevation areas
• Land precipitation and drought: observations, modeling, errors and uncertainty
• Cloud to rainfall transitions - Linking multi-parameter observations to processes and models
• The coupling of clouds, precipitation, and radiation to the large-scale circulation
• Improving the representation of precipitation, cloud, and radiation processes in atmospheric models
• Improving the understanding and modeling of the land-atmosphere interface
