An ICTP Meeting in person
Over the past several decades various international and national academic and research centres have placed high priorities on global water resources issues which are facing many nations as how to address the variability and trends in regional availability and predictability of changing patterns of water supply and shifts in demand.
Programs such as the such as the GEWEX, CORDEX and CMIP under the WCRP umbrella and UNESCO initiatives such as G-WADI program have been addressing the Grand Challenges of how the freshwater availability will shift due to climate change in many food producing regions of the world as well as the supply needs of the growing number of Mega urban areas. The freshwater availability can be different in time because precipitation or ground water change or because snow melt effecting local runoff can experience reduction or increase. Climate extremes are one factor that can influence the intensity of precipitation in time, the snow melt timing and the exchange of water with land and therefore the storage.
To this aim the climate and hydrologic modelling communities have been moving toward very high resolution simulations down to the scale of the convective permitting resolution (1-3 km); and from another side is working to implement fully coupled Earth System models to be able to understand the role of coupled water cycle and land atmosphere interaction in understanding local climate response.
This course will provide the participants with up to date knowledge of advances in both modeling and hydroclimatological data available for regional water resources analysis.
