Task team on the wigos regulatory material third session geneva switzerland 25 29 november 2013

Commission for Hydrology (CHy) Activities

  • General

  • Technical Regulations Volume III – Hydrology

  • Terminology – International Glossary of Hydrology

  • Metadata

  • Provision of Guidance on QMF/QMS

  • Uncertainty Analysis

  • Joint ISO/WMO Standards


General

General

  • Inter-Commission Group on WIGOS (ICG-WIGOS) – Harry Lins, President CHy

  • Task Team on WIGOS Metadata (TT-WMD) – Tony Boston, CHy-AWG

  • Task Team on WIGOS Regulatory Material (TT-WRM) – Paul Pilon, CHy-AWG

  • Task Team on WIGOS Quality Management (TT-WQM) – Paul Pilon, CHy-AWG

  • Inter Programme Expert Team on WIGOS Framework Implementation Matters (IPET WIFI) – Paul Pilon, CHy-AWG

  • Review and develop material for the TT-WRM, TT-WMD and TT-WQM…


Technical regulations volume iii hydrology

Technical Regulations Volume III -Hydrology

  • Review and revise material

    • Set-up editorial board

    • Review existing TRs

    • Use team of experts

    • Peer review material


International glossary of hydrology

International Glossary of Hydrology

  • Joint WMO and UNESCO effort – “Manual”

  • Periodically updated

  • Provides list of terms and their definitions in 4 languages

  • Standard terminology and definitions are of great importance


Metadata

Metadata

  • Monitor and report on new developments on data exchange and protocols, data transfer formats, and data information

  • Test and apply WaterML 2.0 through pilot projects

    • Potential for new WMO standard for information exchange

    • Potential to register as joint WMO/ISO standard


Provision of guidance on qmf qms

Provision of Guidance on QMF/QMS

  • Launch of QMF-H website

  • Provision of background material for NHSs as to benefits of standardization

  • Guidance on implementing a QMS including case studies

    • Use of templates


Uncertainty analysis

Uncertainty Analysis

  • Continue implementing project to assess the performance of flow instruments and techniques

  • Website launched

  • Inclusion of a “working website”

  • Detailed project work plan developed


Uncertainty analysis expected results

Uncertainty Analysis – Expected Results

  • Improved understanding of the accuracy of hydrometric instruments;

  • Appropriate selection or development of instrumentation that meets the measurement needs for water planning and management;

  • Standardization of hydrometric measurements and the computation of estimates of measurement uncertainty (known data quality to possibly improved quality of data);

  • Improved cooperation among NHSs.

How to do it

How to do it?

  • The approach should be easy to implement, “easily understood, and [should] generally [comprise] accepted procedure[s] for characterizing the quality of a measurement… [leading to] expressing its uncertainty.” (GUM, 1993)

    • Use of common terminologies and definitions

    • Systematic propagation of uncertainties and their estimation

    • Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty of Measurements (1993, 1995, 2008)


Joint wmo iso standards

Joint WMO/ISO Standards

  • Undertake review of ISO and other standards used in hydrology and water resources

  • Specify which joint standards should be developed

  • Establish how they will be developed

  • (e.g., WaterML 2.0 to be a joint standards for information exchange)
