IAHS Measurements and Observations in the XXI Century (MOXXI) and WMO HydroHub joint meeting 2017

Innovation in Hydrometry – from ideas to operation

                       


The workshop will be held in Geneva at WMO headquarters on December 4th and 5th 2017.

Sensing the hydrological cycle is key to understand natural processes. However, the monitoring systems currently operated by National Hydrological Services are very expensive to install and maintain. Too expensive for some applications, such as capacity development efforts in low-income countries. Limited budgets in developing countries but also shrinking budgets in developed countries put pressure on manufacturers and customers of hydrometry equipment to find more cost-effective solutions. MOXXI and HydroHub jointly address the need for increased data quality, spatial/temporal resolution and availability of hydrological observations by resorting to innovation and multidisciplinary.
