Notice of WMO Hydrological Observing System (WHOS) Webinar

As a partner to WMO, IAHS would like to draw your attention to the upcoming free webinar on hydrological observations and the related free access paper on e-monitoring the nature of water in HSJ by Pecora & Lins https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/02626667.2020.1724296 .

The critical need for hydrological observations in support of water resources management, particularly during extreme events, has transformed traditional methods of hydrological data management. This transformation has given rise to a framework of e-monitoring the hydrological cycle, the aim of which is to improve understanding of the nature of water.

The WMO Hydrological Observing System (WHOS) was designed around the integration of observations, data exchange, research, data processing, modelling and forecasting, in such a way that societal needs for disaster risk reduction, improved sustainability of environmental resources, climate resilience and economic growth can be effectively met. With its implementation of conceptual functionalities for sustainable data management, the WHOS operational architecture is hydrology’s system for the future.

This webinar is organized in frame of the WMO HydroHub End-of-Phase communication and will present some of the highlights and achievements of the WHOS development and implementation. More specifically, the webinar will allow participants to learn more about importance of data interoperability, WHOS concept and objectives, WHOS brokering approach, WHOS regional prototypes as well as WHOS data use cases.

Day and time: 6 September 2021, 13:30-15:30 (UTC)
