Koblenz, Germany, 21-22 June 2001

Following on from the Geisenheim meeting (see GTOS 26), a second expert meeting to develop an implementation strategy for the Global Terrestrial Network - Hydrology (GTN-H) was organized by the WMO/HWR, GCOS and GTOS and hosted by the Global Runoff Data Centre (GRDC), at the Federal Institute of Hydrology, in Koblenz, Germany, on 21 and 22 June 2001.

A major objective was to define specific actions for the initial implementation of GTN-H, including currently available products and desired short-term improvements. The implementation strategy would define common practices related, inter alia, to data and information management among the participating programmes and centres and procedures for harmonizing the products among the participants and the processes for their dissemination. In addition, the importance of having an integrated data management strategy was considered, including the monitoring of data availability and its collection, the quality controlling
procedures, the archiving, and the dissemination of data
from the participating centres of GTN-H.
