  3. 3. CEOP – AEGIS vs. EUGENE•  CEOP  –  AEGIS  data  products  properly  documented  in  Status  Quo  Report   Water  with  accurate  linkages  to  GEO  Tasks  •  CEOP  –  AEGIS  not  menLoned  in  the  European  GEOSS  Workshop  on  Water  •  CEOP  –  AEGIS  irrelevant  to  European  contribuLon  to  GEO?  •  Does  informaLon  on  GEO  Tasks  gets  lost  in  the  process?   GEO  European  Project  Workshop  -­‐  London  February  8  -­‐  9   3  
  4. 4.   Climate Change Adaptation  •  hydrological  observa:ons,  analyses  and  predic:ons  •  mi:gate  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   –  Iden:fying  and  removing  the  causes  of  the  vulnerability  of  hydrological   systems  to  climate  change   –  Reconstruc:on  of  adapta:on  mechanisms  to  hydrological  variability  in  the   recent  past  •  Need  to  integrate  very  diverse  data  and  models  river-­‐wise   GEO  European  Project  Workshop  -­‐  London  February  8  -­‐  9   4  
  5. 5. Water balance observations from space•  Gravity  (GRACE)  •  Radar  alLmetry  (water  level)  •  Laser  alLmetry  (water  level,  ice  and  snow)  •  High  resoluLon  DSM  (ALOS  /  PRISM)  •  SAR  interferometry   GEO  European  Project  Workshop  -­‐  London  February  8  -­‐  9   5
