IGOS-P Carbon Cycle Observation Theme: Terrestrial and Atmospheric Components

pub26.gif (44309 bytes)Abstract
Geisenheim, Germany, June 26-30,  2000

This meeting of experts was organised to consider the establishment of a global hydrological network for climate. The specific objectives of this meeting were to determine user needs for a global hydrological network; identify products to be delivered by such a network and to develop a vision and a strategy for establishing an initial, end-to-end observing ”system”. Although the focus was on climate-related hydrological variables, the participants fully realised the importance of these variables (and the consequent benefit of
a global network) for other subject areas, including water resources monitoring and assessment, monitoring of the global water cycle, biodiversity issues, land-based sources of pollution, as well as coastal and agricultural applications.
