WMO Hydrohub Innovation Workhop on Hydrometry

As a partner of WMO, IAHS would like to draw your attention to the upcoming virtual Innovation Workshop on hydrometric monitoring.

Background: The WMO HydroHub Phase II was launched on 1 September 2021 for a 5-year period, to enhance capacities of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) in sustainable operation and effective delivery of hydrological monitoring services for disaster risk reduction, social and economic development and environmental protection. Advancing the use of innovative measurement approaches and technologies in operational hydrometry is a core aim of the HydroHub and will be the focus of a number of its activities including Innovation Calls and Innovation Workshops. Full details are available in the 2020 paper Dixon, H., et al., 'Intergovernmental cooperation for hydrometry – what, why and how?'

The Innovation Workshop will thus focus on identifying areas of innovation that the WMO HydroHub could support during its Phase II helping to ensure its activities help build sustainable capability within National Meteorological and Hydrological Services. The event will explore recent advances in hydrometric monitoring approaches and technologies and the current needs of operational monitoring agencies around the world.

Date of event: February 2 and 4, 2022

Format: An interactive virtual event on Zoom with six segments

Organizers: The WMO HydroHub, the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) MOXXI Working group and the WMO Public-Private Engagement Office.

The MOXXI Working Group (Measurements and Observations in the 21st Century) has the task to “promote the advancement of novel observational techniques that leads to new sources of information to help better understand the hydrological cycle”. More information can be found in the Tauro,  F., et al., 2018 paper 'Measurements and observations in the XXI century (MOXXI): innovation and multi-disciplinarity to sense the hydrological cycle.'
