Igcp 565 project objectives for 2008 2013

IGCP 565 Project Objectives for 2008-2013

  • Explore and develop components of the Global Geodetic Observing System (GGOS) into a Monitoring System for Regional Hydrologic Cycle.

  • Combine GPS and GRACE observations to improve geodetic modeling.

  • Prepare geodetic products for assimilation into hydrologic models.

  • Hold annual workshops, tutorials, and provide geodetic products that are useful to water resource managers.


Science issues

Science Issues

  • Develop an integrated dynamic model for predicting daily to interannual geodetic signals.

  • Develop inversion algorithms for combined geodetic observations for surface mass changes.

  • Develop an integrated assimilation of observed surface mass change within land surface hydrologic models.

  • Develop products relevant for regional water management.


Accomplishments to date

Accomplishments to Date

  • Five Annual Workshops

  • Numerous Peer Reviewed Publications

  • Gravity and groundwater well observation data assimilation Pilot study in California.


Next steps hydrology

Next Steps: Hydrology

  • Capacity Building

  • Bridging Spatial Scales

  • Hydrogeodesy


Capacity building

Capacity Building

  • California Water Resource Modeling needs to improve groundwater variations.

  • African Nations need Technology Transfer

  • Education training workshops


Large scale to local monitoring

Large‐Scale to Local Monitoring

  • Combination of direct and indirect measurements are needed.

  • Inversion techniques for deriving water storage variations based on GPS and InSAR.

  • Spatial gap filling.

  • Data assimilation at high‐resolution


Continue dialogue

Continue Dialogue

  • Hydrologists and Meteorologists formed the interdisciplinary field, hydrometeorology

  • We need to form the interdisciplinary field of hydrogeodesy. Why are we not entraining more participants.


The 2013 2018 follow on plan

The 2013-2018 Follow on Plan

  • Prepare and submit IGCP Proposal in 2013.

  • Focus more narrowly on a watershed in Africa with support from ongoing projects.

  • Advance California the assimilation work as a technology transfer to Africa.
