International Workshop SWGen-Hydro

Registrations are now open for the International Workshop on Stochastic Weather Generators for Hydrological Applications (SWGen-Hydro), which will take place in Berlin (Germany) - September 18th to 20th, 2017.

Following the first three workshops "SWGEN" on stochastic weather generators (in 2012, 2014 and 2016), this workshop focuses on SWGs suitable in hydrological modeling contexts.

Climate variability is one of the important drivers of hydrological processes. Stochastic weather generators (SWGs) aim at modeling climatic variables – such as precipitation, temperature, humidity, etc – to drive hydrological models. Being at the interface between climate and hydrological processes, they are valuable tools for hydrological impact studies for the past, recent and future climate. However, part of the weather variability is not described in a deterministic but stochastic way, reflecting the chaotic nature of atmospheric processes in a natural way. Stochastic weather generators (SWGs) are thus canonical tools in hydrological studies.

Contributions are welcome on stochastic weather generators for:

  • hydrological applications;
  • sub-daily or daily time scale;
  • stationary, as well as conditional on large scale climatic drivers for hydrological past and future projections;
  • studying the range of variability (uncertainty) in hydrological model

Abstracts must be submitted until July 23th, 2017. The number of participants is limited.

The SWGEN-Hydro can support two young scientists with a reduced fee and some partial payment of travel costs. For more information, visit the website.
