  • 1. EU  Project   CEOP-­‐AEGIS   Collabora(ve   Project  /  Small  or  medium-­‐scale  focused  research  project  –   Specific  Interna(onal  Co-­‐opera(on  Ac(on  Coordinated  Asia-­‐European  long-­‐term  Observing  system  of  Qinghai– ENV.2007.4.1.4.2   Improving  observing  systems  for  Tibet   Plateau   hydro-­‐metOeorological   processes   and   the   Asian-­‐ water  resource  management   Period:  May  2008  –  May  2012  monsoon   systEm   with   Ground   satellite   Image   data   and   numerical  Simula(ons   An   interna(onal   coopera(on   project   between   Europe   and   Asia   to   improve   knowledge   on   hydrology   and   meteorology   of   the   Tibetan   Plateau   and   its   role   in   climate,   monsoon   and   extreme  meteorological  events     To   construct   out   of   exis(ng   ground   measurements   and   current   /   future   satellites   an   observing   system   to   determine  and  monitor  the  water  yield  of  the  Plateau,  i.e.   how  much  water  is  finally  going  into  the  seven  major  rivers   of  SE  Asia     To   monitor   the   evolu(on   of   snow,   vegeta(on   cover,   surface   wetness   and   surface   fluxes   and   analyze   the   linkage   with  convec(ve  ac(vity,  (extreme)  precipita(on  events  and   the  Asian  Monsoon.   19  beneficiaries  from  8  european  and  asian  countries   www.ceop-­‐aegis.org  
  • 2. Contributions to GEO WP 2012 - 2015•  GEO  Water  Tasks:     Data  integra(on  using  hydrological  and  atmospheric  models       Use  of  data  and  informa(on  systems  on  water  resources  to  assess  the   resilience  and  vulnerability  of  large  watersheds  towards  adapta(on  to   climate  variability  and  change     Virtual  constella(on  terrestrial  water  cycle  
  • 3. Climate Change Adaptation    •  hydrological  observaIons,  analyses  and  predicIons  •  miIgate  the  impacts  of  climate  change    •  remove  the  underlying  causes  of  vulnerability  to  climate  change  •  Themes:   –  Short-­‐  and  long-­‐term  hydrological  variability  and  climate  change   –  Resilience  versus  vulnerability  of  hydrologic  systems   –  Resilience  of  hydrological  systems  to  climate  variability   –  IdenIfying  and  removing  the  causes  of  the  vulnerability  of  hydrological   systems  to  climate  change   –  ReconstrucIon  of  adaptaIon  mechanisms  to  hydrological  variability  in  the   recent  past  •  Need  to  integrate  very  diverse  data  and  models  river-­‐wise
