TitleAsian monsoon hydro-climate and water resources research for a next GEWEX RHP
Short TitleAsian GEWEX
Main ConvenerNameShinjiro Kanae
AffiliationSchool of Environment and Society, Tokyo Institute of Technology
Session LanguageEE
ScopeIn the Asian monsoon region, water-related climate is one of the key issues for its growth, sustainability, and disaster prevention. The 10-year MAHASRI (a regional project of GEWEX under WCRP) period successfully finished in 2016, and we are currently trying to establish a new RHP (Regional Hydro-climate Project) for the Asian monsoon region under WCRP/GEWEX/GHP. This session will be open for all fields of research related with Asian monsoon hydro-climate and its application to society (e.g., water resources), regardless of the participation in the above projects. We also welcome GEWEX and GHP related studies outside the Asian monsoon. Keywords and targets of this session include: 1) hydro-climate extremes and water-related disasters in monsoon Asia in a changing climate; 2) prediction of hydro-climate and water resources in monsoon Asia from monthly, seasonal to decadal time-scales for societal benefits, 3) changes in water availability and water use in this particular food basket region of the world, 4) intra-seasonal oscillation and diurnal change of hydro-climate in Asia, and its impact on society, 5) long-term monitoring, data-rescue, satellite remote-sensing, and new observation of hydro-climate and water resources in this region for societal benefits, 6) monsoon onset and withdrawal and their linkages with society. Participants are encouraged to discuss future collaboration and research-network expansion for ultimately establishing the next RHP under GEWEX as a successor of MAHASRI and GAME.
