Scope In the Asian region, Monsoon Asian Hydro-Atmosphere Scientific Research and Prediction Initiative (MAHASRI) has been focused on both fields of science (meteorology, climatology and hydrology) and applications (agriculture, water-related disaster, etc) as one of the WCRP/GEWEX/GHP international projects. It has also collaborated with WCRP project, Asian Monsoon Year (AMY 2007-2012). Since the first stage of AMY 2007-2012 has come to an end, this session will be open for all fields related with Asian monsoon hydroclimate and discuss future collaboration among these researches.
