Dear all,
UNESCO IHP EURO-FRIEND project 3,
.
workshop/training series.
.
Our next session, session 4 “Constructing and Communicating Regional Climate Change Scenarios”,
is on July 6th 2022 (Wednesday next week) at 2 pm UTC (3 pm London).
This session will be presented by Prof Ted Shepherd from the University of Reading (UK).
.
.
“Climate scenarios are generally understood as global scenarios, expressed either as SSP-RCPs or as global warming levels. At the regional scale, however, such scenarios are insufficiently informative for risk assessment, since there is considerable uncertainty in the regional response to climate change, not least because of the important role of atmospheric circulation. Although there is a natural desire to represent risk probabilistically — some scientists even define risk in terms of probability — the complexity of the risk landscape suggests that more targeted and process-oriented explorations of the uncertainty space could be more informative, and more useful for decision-making. This has led to the emergence of what are called storyline approaches to understanding and quantifying environmental risk, which involve the development of regional climate change scenarios. Yet the question of probability cannot be entirely ducked, not least because many regulatory requirements are couched in terms of return periods. In this talk I reflect on how probabilistic and storyline approaches can be considered together to address such issues, taking a general perspective but illustrated with hydrological examples.”

Reminder: 23 UPH in Africa - Volunteers for thematic working groups
.
.
Thank you to all the people who have come forward to contribute in coordinating the discussions and synthesis on the 23 UPH topics and questions.
There are still a few important questions (e.g. on groundwater recharge in semi arid regions, on land cover change) with only one or no volunteers from the continent.
We therefore encourage all those who are hesitating, who forgot the deadline, who lost the email...to come forward to animate these working groups. We will happily also consider additional volunteers for the other topics/questions as well.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Best regards,
Andrew & Gil

23 UPH in Africa - Volunteers for thematic working groups
Following the great interest in the 23 UPH in Africa initiative (> 350 replies), we are now looking for motivated volunteers to come forward to facilitate online discussions within each of these thematic working groups, and coordinate the production of a synthesis on each topic. The idea is that each working group (each led by 2-3 volunteers) produces a 2-3 page synthesis, describing how recent research in Africa contributes to the unsolved question described in the Blosch et al. 2019 HSJ article, by providing new elements in different hydroclimatic (and/or socioeconomic) contexts for instance, or by proposing new and complementary approaches.
Volunteers will be asked to:
(i) present the initial reflections on the topic during the 2021 Cotonou 4th FRIEND/IAHS conference (virtually or in presence) and;
(ii) contribute first hand to writing the synthesis article and communicating these findings during the Montpellier May 2022 IAHS conference.
Interested volunteers can contact us directly through ResearchGate stating which question (out of the 23 listed below) they would be interested in co-leading on. We hope to gather a strong team of writers/facilitators and researchers from the continent, but the contributions of colleagues from other continents is welcome, notably from those heavily involved in Africa.
Please note that working groups will be public and participants will have the opportunity to join and contribute to several topics/question if they wish.

History:
The International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS), in collaboration with the Hydrology Divisions of EGU and AGU as well as the IAH, launched in 2017 a broad public consultation process to identify major unsolved scientific problems in hydrology. Subsequent workshops and discussions to collate, prioritise and synthesise the science questions resulted, in 2019, in a list of 23 Unsolved Problems in Hydrology (UPH).
"Providing common research subjects is […] hoped to increase the coherence of the scientific process in hydrology, and thus accelerate progress, through increasing the critical mass of researchers working on any one science question and through increasing the scientific connectivity within hydrology" (Blöschl et al. 2019)
The UPH are articulated around 7 themes:
- Time variability and change
- Space variability and scaling
- Variability of extremes
- Interfaces in hydrology
- Measurements and data
- Modelling methods
- Interfaces with society

GRDC Data Download provides River Discharge Data online
The GRDC Data Download portal has been completed and now in-situ river discharge data collected since 1988 in the Global Runoff Database are available with a few mouse clicks.
The Global Runoff Database of quality controlled “historical” mean daily and monthly discharge data has developed into the most comprehensive global river discharge data archive supporting climate-related programs and projects of the United Nations and their special organizations and the scientific and research communities at large. This constantly growing collection of river discharge data and station metadata has been endorsed by World Meteorological Organization (WMO) at the Eighteenth WMO Congress (Cg-18) as part of the initial datasets in the WMO Climate Data Catalogue. The Global Runoff Database is operated by the Global Runoff Data Centre (GRDC) at the German Federal Institute of Hydrology (BfG) in Koblenz, Germany. The GRDC was established in November 1988, and operates under the auspices of the WMO.
The exchange of hydrological data and information on a global scale is the principal reason for operating GRDC. It connects national hydrological and hydro-meteorological services, the primary providers of river discharge data and associated metadata, and the scientific research community utilizing this unique data collection. Growing data contributions from National Hydrological Services are increasing the value of this unique dataset.
The GRDC Data Download portal is for web-based selection and download of river discharge data collected by GRDC on behalf of WMO. Map views support the usual zoom functions and selection tools. Hoover boxes, filters and search fields assist with the selection of suitable stations. Table views with configurable columns allow a more detailed selection. Selection of several items is summarized into one download. Calibration of hydrological models, evaluating model results, or validating remote sensing data with in-situ data can now be done without cumbersome data ordering procedures.
River discharge data are provided in different formats including WaterML2, which is an accepted WMO and OGC standard format for the exchange of hydrologic data.
GRDC's Terms of Use and Data Sharing Conditions have to be agreed to before a discharge data download is possible

SPECIAL ISSUE:
“Geomorphological Research for Management and Mitigation of Geo-hydrological Risk and Environmental S
ustainability”
Every year around the world, a great number of natural processes like landslides, muddy-debris flows and floods occur.
Their effects often involve urbanized areas causing severe damage and casualties. In many cases, this problem must be
considered as a direct consequence of incomplete and/or uncorrected land planning that has permitted the urbanization
of areas potentially prone to geo-hydrological hazards.
In the aftermath of such severe events, the mass media wonder how they can happen, and the scientific community gives
precise answers that often seem obvious: "in that area nothing should have been built". The experts often propose
the need to relocate residential or industrial areas. However, this has rarely been achieved because of the physical
or economic difficulties and the reluctance of local inhabitants. Consequently, the preferred response is to use
engineering measures for local remedial works.
This inadequate land-use management, in many countries, has been tackled by the introduction of mitigation procedures.
This have included legislation for gradually instituted many regional and local planning instruments and special plans
for areas characterized by very high geo-hydrological risk.
Although in these last years effective and valuable tools have been introduced to evaluate the risk to constructions
in areas prone to geo-hydrological hazards, the disastrous natural processes continue to take a heavy toll.
The aim
The aim of the Special Issue is to analyze the state-of-the-art in the field of land management in relation to Geo-hydrological risks. The volume will collect papers produced by different authors and groups working in the field of natural hazards, geo-hydrological risk, land-use planning and urban planning. Papers on case studies from all over the world will be very welcome. The aim of the Special Issue of Sustainability is to inform the international scientific community and especially technicians, politicians and urban planning authorities about the results of studies and research that have been carried out in this field, suggesting a sort of pathway for effective risk reduction and sustainable land management.
Keywords: Flood, Debris flow, Landslide, Urbanization, Land-use planning, Risk Evaluation, Risk Mitigation, Urban Resilience, Environmental Sustainability.
It is with great pleasure that we announce a Special Issue of the Sustainability.
The topic that we intend to address together with your help is very timely. We expect to receive many papers
from geologists, engineers, agronomists, environmental scientists who have worked in the specific field of
geomorphology for the management and mitigation of Geo-hydrological risk and environmental sustainability.
We hope you can submit a contribution to the volume.
The deadline to submit your paper is June 30, 2020.
Editors: Francesco Faccini, Fabio Luino, Jerome De Graff, Carmen de Jong.

The WRF-Hydro Development team is pleased to announce the public release of WRF-Hydro version 5.1.1.
This minor release has the following enhancements:
Lakes in the NCAR reach configuration:
When running the NCAR Reach configuration, Lakes will now work as expected (similarly to the NWM configuration).
Compound channel:
In order to represent a simplification of the behavior of a flood wave when it exceeds the channel bank,
a compound channel formulation was added to the NWM code.
The compound channel formulation is currently only functional in the NWM configuration.
RSURF_EXP parameter exposed in MPTABLE.TBL:
The previously hard coded soil shape function exponent parameter in Noah-MP was added to the MPTABLE.TBL parameter
table as RSURF_EXP and spatial soil parameter file as rsurfexp.
BATS albedo parameters were exposed in MPTABLE.TBL. The maximum snow water equivalent was changed to 5000mm
Broader usage of the netCDF4/HDF5 format
Additional direct and diffuse snow albedo variables were added

Special Issue
"Optimally Combining Datasets and Mathematical Models for Hydraulics & Hydrology Modeling"
Water — Open Access Journal, Section Hydraulics.
Please feel free to submit your contribution.
Deadline: August 31, 2020
*
Satellite datasets (imagery, altimetry), exploitable in hydrology, are
now relatively accurate and frequent. Optimally combining
mathematical–numerical models and data sets enables us to better
understand the hydraulic and hydrological processes from local to global
scale.
Data assimilation (DA) techniques are now widely used for river
hydraulics and hydrology modeling. In another respect, deep artificial
neural networks (machine learning) achieve accurate approximation of
nonlinear phenomena from large data bases. However, their prediction
capabilities are not “certified” in the sense that they are not based on
physical information.
Optimally combining mathematical models, datasets, physical-based
equation, and statistical learning (e.g., through deep neural networks)
is a new challenging, effective way forward to improve multiscale
hydraulic and hydrological models.
This Special Issue focuses on the use of recent advances in methods
optimally combining physical information and measurements for hydraulics
and hydrology modeling.
* Keywords
River hydraulics
Hydrology
Mathematical modeling
Physical information
Remotely sensed data
Data assimilation
Big data
Neural networks
Machine learning

Greetings,
I am Dr. Zachary Curtis,
co-founder of Hydrosimulatics (HSA) - a Michigan State University spin-off and the
deliverable of a recent US National Science Foundation Innovation Corps (I-Corps) project.
I am writing to share with you an exciting, cloud-powered, data-enabled, and
realtime interactive global groundwater modeling platform,
accessible anywhere and anytime - free of charge.
The platform enables – for the first time – users to navigate to anywhere in the world to almost instantly
create a groundwater model and visualization that can be further customized, refined, or expanded based on
the user’s local data, expertise, and experience.
It takes literally just minutes or even seconds to set up a 3D flow and contaminant transport model using
existing, preprocessed bigdata and obtain an integrated animated solution and analyses.
The data enabled platform allows users to focus on what they are supposed to do: modeling and approximation -
iteratively improving conceptualizations, testing hypotheses, understanding data worth, evaluating scenarios,
assessing decisions, and making sense of the solutions.
To maximize the impact of this development, we have also created (and will continuously improve) a comprehensive,
action-oriented groundwater curriculum and reference repository of engaged-learning lessons, short problems,
integrated capstone projects, and video lectures and demos. These problems can be edited, customized, and refined
by the professors based on their specific course learning objectives / curricular expectations.
The initiative makes learning fun and relevant - bringing research and real-world problem solving into the classroom
on a routine basis, at all levels – from undergraduate to graduate and from high school to vocational education – and
for multiple disciplines – from geology to agriculture to environmental and water resources science and engineering.

3rd Water Energy NEXUS CONFERENCE
The 3rd WaterEnergyNEXUS CONFERENCE
WELCOMES SCIENTISTS FROM ALL OVER
THE WORLD IN DJERBA ISLAND (TUNISIA)
01 – 05 DECEMBER 2020
Dear colleague,
The WaterEnergyNEXUS is one of the most important and priority issue to be resolved for both current and next generations.
The Sanitary Environmental Engineering Division (SEED) of the University of Salerno (Italy) in collaboration with the
University of Sfax (Tunisia), Advanced Institute of Water Industry at Kyungpook National University (Korea) and with
The Energy and Resources Institute, TERI (India) is organizing the third edition of WaterEnergyNEXUS conference, that
will be held in the island of Djerba (Tunisia) on 1-5 December 2020.
The first edition of WaterEnergyNEXUS was organized in Korea in 2017 during the Asian International Water Week, one of
the more relevant and strategic appointments in Asia for scientists and professionals who are working on the field of
the water industry and sustainability. The second edition were was organized in Salerno (Italy) in 2018.
This third edition of WaterEnergyNEXUS conference will provide an international platform to share and discuss key topics
on such water issues with the presentation of nature-based solutions, advanced technologies and best practices with the
support of experts invited as plenary and keynote speakers. An additional aim of this 2020 WaterEnergyNEXUS conference is
to contribute to the overall goal of enhancing cooperation, integration and sustainable development in the
Euro-Mediterranean region on critical topics of Water and Energy.
The WaterEnergyNEXUS series of conferences received the support of the UNESCO World Water Association Programme (WWAP)
and the International Water Association (IWA) It is also under the patronage of several international scientific
societies, associations and organizations. And, it enjoys the publishing partnership with SpringerNature.
Important notice:
The 3rd edition of WaterEnergyNEXUS will take place as scheduled and we are proceeding with all plans to convene the
meeting.
However, from now until the conference days, no one can predict the worldwide development and spread of coronavirus
and how long this situation will last. That is why, WaterEnergyNEXUS board decided to provide the possibility of
presenting online to those who prefer not to attend the conference in person.
Interested authors are encouraged to submit an abstract of their presentation and to leave the decision
(deadline: 30 September 2020) as to whether to attend the conference and to present onsite or just online. More details about the “online presentation” feature will be provided after notification of acceptances.
Plan B:
If the risk associated with the spread of coronavirus will continue after this summer, we’ll decide before the
deadline for online registration (30 September 2020) about the possibility of organizing online the full conference
or to postpone it to Spring 2021. In all cases, we’ll inform you about our decision before the deadline for online
registration (i.e. 2 months before your trip to Djerba)

Share This Special Issue
In most Tropical and Mediterranean areas, landscapes, soils and territories are experiencing new vulnerabilities, facing global warming and accelerating changes in land use. Long droughts, dry spells, rainfall intensification, and an increase in number of storms and cyclones make agriculture as well as land management and water and sediment control more difficult. In many regions, the population increase is too strong to allow cropping and rural activities to easily reach a “boserupian” behavior. The intensification of the climatic cycle commonly leads to an acceleration of the hydrological cycle, increasing the occurrence of flooding, inundation, as well as droughts and water shortages. Human actions and overall rural activity can strongly modify water runoff and infiltration, then water balance, by increasing infiltration and buffering the water cycle, or on the contrary, by increasing runoff and accelerating the water cycle. Rural practices are commonly suspected to decrease the soil water-holding capacity. This could lead to a rise in flooding occurrence and intensity downstream, and on site they cause edaphic drought in areas where no climatic drought is observed.These kinds of changes influence hydrology and erosion, with implications for various risks: food insecurity, natural disasters (landslides, flood damage), water shortages and pathogenic contaminations. The accelerating pace of these environmental changes leaves limited time for adaptation. While the need for “climate change adaption” is recognized, there is also a need for land-use change adaptation. To date, there is limited understanding of the processes linking land use management to these risks.There is a need to understand causal chains of processes, from land-use, vegetation structure, soil, erosion, hydrological connectivity (surface and subsurface) infiltration and then related risks to better manage these risks and reduce them. Multi-scale approaches are relevant because there are multi-scale impacts; the micro-plot and hillslopes are relevant to understand processes controlling soil detachment and the partition of rainfall into surface and subsurface flow in relation with interacting land use and soil surface dynamics. At the watershed level, local dynamics translate into risks of hydrological extremes, erosion and contamination, threatening downstream populations and ecosystems. .

The Phd research will be supervised by Dr Nathalie Philippon ( https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Nathalie_Philippon). Project The role of Central Africa forests on the regional and global climate and their importance for the local socio-ecosystems have been long recognized and recently recalled in the movie «Forests of Central Africa: our c o m m o n f u t u r e» (http://www.cafi.org/content/cafi/fr/home/events/new-cafi-movie-calls-for-joint-action.html) Yet, the future of these forests in a context of rapid global warming is uncertain as they grow under much drier conditions than forests in Amazonia or South East Asia (less than 2000mm). The western part of Central Africa hosts the densest and evergreen forests of Central Africa because of a large low cloud cover developing during the main dry season (Dommo et al 2018) which limits the water demand and enhances diffuse light (Philippon et al 2018). It has also hosted 1 of the 3 Central Africa forest refugees during the Holocene when forests retracted (Maley et al 2017). Therefore, the questions of the variability of water and light availability in links with the June-September low cloud cover over the western part of Central Africa during the last decades, the perennation of this low cloud cover under climate change, and of the vulnerability of the evergreen forests are posed. To answer these questions, the focus will be put on the analysis of long-term satellite estimates, especially those of solar radiation and cloudiness, and their reproducibility in state-of-the-art climate models (CMIP6). Responsibilities Perform high quality research and communicate on the main achievements (papers, conferences ...) Profile → Excellent motivation and grade → MSC in environmental sciences or geography, meteorology, remote sensing with an excellent background in climatology and solar radiation, cloudiness. → Skills in statistics applied to time-series analysis and climate models outputs. → Experience with handling of large gridded netcdf files issued from reanalyses, remote sensing and climate models (CMIP). → Experience with programming and scientific computing using applications as Matlab or Python. → Curious, creative, critical, and analytical mindset - Ability to work independently → Good written and oral communication skills in English. Only PhD candidates with grades above average will be interviewed by CNES and admitted to the doctoral school.

through maps and time charts.
. It features several parameters based on temperature, rainfall and agriculture yields, scaled on monthly periods. Initial data is Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5) global climate models. The version presented here has been bias-corrected for Africa using CDF-t method as part of the AMMA 2050 project, then re-scaled by month. Crop yield results have been obtained by SARRA-H Ocelet. All this data comes as raster data with resolution 0.5°x0.5°, which was cut and weighted to match Senegal administrative regions. This work was supported by a grant from the French Ministry for an Ecological and Solidary Transition as part of the Convention on financial support for climate services. Ce travail a bénéficié d'une aide du Ministère de la Transition Ecologique et Solidaire au titre de la Convention relative à l’attribution d’un appui financier au bénéfice des services climatiques."

Chères et Chers collègues,
Je suis fière de vous annoncer la publication du rapport spécial du GIEC sur 1,5°C de réchauffement global.
Vous trouverez en ligne sur
le résumé pour les décideurs, approuvé après une semaine marathon avec les meilleurs négociateurs des 195 pays : 19 mois de travail de 91 auteurs, 133 contributeurs, sur la base de l'évaluation de 6 000 publications, et 42 000 commentaires de relecture. Vous trouverez aussi les FAQ (frequently asked questions), le brouillon de rapport complet (sous réserve de corrections éditoriales), et le communiqué de presse avec les 4 messages principaux.
C'est la première fois que le GIEC prépare un rapport transverse à ses 3 groupes de travail et à toutes les disciplines, dans un délai aussi court (2 ans et 10 mois après l'invitation de la COP21).
J'aimerais que le résumé pour décideurs (pour l'instant uniquement disponible en anglais) soit diffusé très largement aux étudiants de toutes les universités et établissements d’enseignement supérieur et de recherche français, car il souligne l'importance des intersections entre climat et développement, l'importance d'accélérer l'action d'ici à 2030 pour laisser ouverte la possibilité de stabiliser le réchauffement en évitant des conséquences très lourdes pour les populations les plus vulnérables, et le risque de perte irréversible d'écosystèmes ou d'options risquées, et les opportunités d'action qui prennent en compte le climat et les autres enjeux du développement durable (sortie de la pauvreté, sécurité alimentaire, santé publique, préservation de la biodiversité...).
Le rapport complet fait une évaluation complète des conditions permettant le déploiement des options d'action (chapitre 4) sur 6 dimensions de faisabilité (aspects géophysiques, environnementaux/écologiques, technologiques, économiques, socio-culturels et institutionnels) et des avantages concomittants ou des risques d'effets secondaires dans toutes les autres dimensions du développement durable (chapitre 5); ces 2 chapitres sont innovants par rapport aux rapports précédents. Ce sont autant de pistes pour que chacun, dans tous les secteurs d'activité, puisse agir en optimisant les choix.
C'est pour cette jeune génération que nous avons consacré tous nos efforts à produire un rapport qui soit objectif et rigoureux, mettant en avant les risques et les solutions. Merci de nous aider à partager l'analyse de ces 6 000 publications scientifiques et les conclusions principales avec cette génération qui va faire face aux conséquences de l'inaction actuelle.
Je vous remercie,
Bien cordialement,
Valérie Masson-Delmotte. Co-présidente du groupe de travail I du GIEC.

Special Issue "Multiscale Impacts of Anthropogenic and Climate Changes on Tropical and Mediterranean Hydrology"
submit vefore 31st December 2018
Dear Colleagues, In most Tropical and Mediterranean areas, landscapes, soils and territories are experiencing new vulnerabilities, facing global warming and profound changes in terms of land use. Long droughts, dry spells, rainfall intensification, and an increase in number of storms and cyclones make agriculture as well as land management and water and sediment control more difficult. In many regions, the population increase is too strong to allow cropping and rural activities to easily reach a “boserupian” behavior. The intensification of the climatic cycle commonly leads to an acceleration of the hydrological cycle, increasing the occurrence of flooding, inundation, as well as droughts and water shortages. Human actions and overall rural activity can strongly modify water runoff and infiltration, then water balance, by increasing infiltration and buffering the water cycle, or on the contrary, by increasing runoff and accelerating the water cycle. Rural practices are commonly suspected to decrease the soil water-holding capacity. This could lead to a rise in flooding occurrence and intensity downstream, and on site they cause edaphic drought in areas where no climatic drought is observed. These kinds of changes influence hydrology and erosion, with implications for various risks: food security, natural disasters (landslides, flood damage, water shortages and hydropower shortages). The acceleration of changes leaves limited time for adaptation. While the need for “climate change adaption” is recognized, there is also a need for land-use change adaptation. To date, there is limited understanding of the processes linking land use management to these risks. There is a need to understand causal chains of processes, from land-use, vegetation structure, soil, erosion, hydrological connectivity (surface and subsurface) infiltration and then related risks to better manage these risks and reduce them. Multi-scale approaches are relevant because there are multi-scale impacts; the micro-plot is relevant to farmers (food security). The watershed is relevant to hydro-dams (siltation of reservoirs and reduced inflow reducing HP production), downstream users and to downstream populations exposed to flash floods.

Dear Colleagues,
We would like to share with you the report entitled “Climate Change Adaptation in the Arab States: Best Practices and Lessons Learned”, published by UNDP and GEF in July, and of interest for MedECC.  Report and executive summary are available
The purpose of the publication is described below: “The purpose of this publication is to detail lessons learned from UNDP’s Climate Change Adaptation work and achievements in the Arab region on achieving sustainable and lasting results. Some lessons include building local capacity at all levels to ensure a project’s long-term viability, decentralizing infrastructure management, implicating community-based organizations, and promoting resilience of vulnerable populations through livelihood diversification. Providing populations with access to adapted financial services such as Weather Index Insurances (WII) linked with microfinance services was found to support rural  populations to become more resilient to climate induced damages. The immediate objective of this publication is not only to share experiences with a wider audience, but also to inform future CCA programming. The publication furthermore acts as a call to action to facilitate a long-term coordinated approach to increasing the resilience of countries most vulnerable to climate change in the region.”

Albert Kettner <albert.kettner@gmail.com>Ven 10/08/2018,
Dear all,
It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a paper to the EGU journal Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences (NHESS) special issue: ‘Advances in computational modeling of geoprocesses and geohazards’. This special issue is the result of the NSF funded conference “Geoprocesses, geohazards - CSDMS 2018”: https://csdms.colorado.edu/wiki/CSDMS_meeting_2018
Those who are interested are kindly asked to send an email to kettner@colorado.edu and include the following information: 1) working title, 2) few sentences describing what the paper will present, 3) name of contact author (need not be first author) and their email address, and 4) co-authors and their institutes. Papers for the special issue are accepted till February 28th, 2019.
Background: Natural hazards impact thousands of people every year. Floods, droughts, extreme storms, landslides, wildfires, and permafrost erosion all change the Earth's surface and can inflict tremendous damage to human infrastructure. Numerical models of earth surface processes are one tool to simulate natural-hazard processes and provide quantitative pre-event risk assessment. Yet such assessments are only appropriate when the models capture all important physical processes, when the models are tested and well-vetted, when they are useable and proven accurate.
The aim of the special issue is to identify: a) the current state of the art in our current natural hazard process understanding, both fundamentally in the earth surface processes as well as in the modeling approaches and technology, b) important gaps and shortcomings, c) improvements in natural hazard modeling for risk assessment, with a special focus on building a next-generation cyberinfrastructure and a community of modern modeling and data analysis practices, d) modeling and conveying uncertainty in numerical risk assessments, and e) case studies in which numerical models have increased resilience by reducing vulnerability to disasters.
feel free to distribute this among your colleges. Looking forward hearing from you!
Best regards,

HSJ SPECIAL ISSUE ON “HYDROLOGICAL DATA: OPPORTUNITIES AND BARRIERS”
Data issues were, are, and will remain a core component of the hydrological sciences. Their character and influence on the way the discipline is practiced may vary through time, but their intrinsic role in understanding and managing water resources, as well as in developing sound water policies dictates their continuing importance. Whereas the primary data issues during much of the twentieth century focused on establishing and maintaining in situ observing networks to provide a sound basis for understanding and predicting the quantity and quality of the resource, both on the surface and in the ground, today’s concern encompasses a much broader suite of problems.
To elevate and expand the discussion of the critical role of data in all aspects of the hydrological sciences, a Special Issue of the Hydrological Sciences Journal entitled “Hydrological Data: Opportunities and Barriers” is being planned for publication. Articl es are currently being sought on all aspects of data in hydrology; from traditional concerns related to networks to more contemporary thinking about simple, low cost innovations in instrumentation, data management and exchange protocols, and big data, as in large-scale multi-model ensembles spanning long time periods. Numerous emerging activities and topics provide a substantial source of potential contributions.
For example, the assimilation of data from new observation technologies is an expanding issue which has given rise to activities and efforts within the scientific community, the operational services and the facilitating mechanisms of the United Nations towards measurements and observations in the twenty-first century, innovative water monitoring capabilities and data exchange, virtual labs to facilitate observation-modelling progress; as well as an array of efforts involving citizen science, simple and inexpensive instrumentation, remote sensing innovations, and stud ies involving the comparative assessment of using a limited number of research basins versus a relatively large number of management basins (e.g., PUB and its ongoing follow ups).
Similarly, data assimilation among various system components in the modeling of hydroclimatology and hydrometeorology, and their interfaces with the land surface, ecological and social systems, and others is moving forward – especially within the framework of the Panta Rhei initiative. Moreover, the emerging focus on the water-food-energy nexus reflects not only the increasing demand for data within each sector, but for viable approaches to their integration that ensure water and food security, sustainable agriculture, and energy production worldwide.
The recent discussions of big data and emerging efforts associated with the shaping of "data science" are crucial concerns for the future of hydrology and should be explored. Also, a number of concerns dealing with retrospective investigatio ns are data-dependent, with particular worries related to data archiving and data rescue.
Moreover, hydrological data are typically obtained through a combination of observations and computational algorithms. For example, river discharge is most often estimated from water level via a rating curve; multi-spectrum analysis of satellite data is frequently combined with multiple information sources to produce a variety of Earth observation products; and observed time-series are used to estimate parameters in complex dynamic hydrological models. As a result, the boundary between observed and computed data is often vague and, considering the degree to which such data are shared, re-used and cited, it can be difficult to trace their provenance.
Notably, a strong and vigorous debate on data could be critical to the development of new policy messages regarding observing networks; i.e., their density, quality, sustainability, investment, modernization, etc. Such a debate may a lso serve as an important contribution to the development of inputs from the hydrological sciences to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals that, at their core, are data dependent, especially along the observation-knowledge-indicator-target value chain.
The data issue is an increasingly import aspect of the publication industry, where inveterate concerns over open access to data have long vexed the community. The emerging interest in providing datasets as supplementary materials to papers is an encouraging sign, and periodicals like the Hydrological Science Journal take this opportunity to develop and promote such policies for their operations. IAHS could use this Special Issue as a basis for developing new and related portals on iahs.info .
Finally, it is critical that corresponding competencies in hydrology be identified for educ ation and capacity building, particularly with respect to data issues. Numerous organizations are working on these issues and contributions reflecting new efforts in this area are of particular interest.
