  • IHP
    Precipitation Measurement from Space and Its Applications 

    Date: 19/11/2012-26/11/2012

    Precipitation is one of the major components of the Earth climate system. Precipitation has also a big impact as a major fresh water resource to the ecosystem and human activity. Thus, observation of precipitation distribution is crucial not only for understanding and predicting changes of precipitation under the current global climate change but also for human activities. Global or even locally, precipitation observation is, however, difficult, because it has large spatiotemporal variations.

    The course is composed of a series of lectures and practice sessions which will introduce the basics of precipitation retrieval from space and current global precipitation maps and include the accuracy. Examples of global precipitation maps from space will be demonstrated. Practices are for learning skills to utilize the precipitation maps.

    Introduction to River Basin Environment Assessment under Climate Change

    Date: 29/11/2011-05/12/2011
    The 21st IHP training course is focused on three major objectives:
    (1) to acquire the latest knowledge on hydrological and environmental assessment under climate changes at river basin scale in the Asia-Pacific region,
    (2) to make practice for selected topics on successful simulations to make use of the river basin environment assessment, and
    (3) to discuss the possibility to apply the river basin environment assessment into some hydrological and environmental managements.
