The main objectives of the workshop are to prepare for the exploitation of the next generation of altimeters, to bring together hydrologists, model developers and in-situ data analysts, and space scientists in order to tackle the future challenges in the hydrology of surface water storage and runoff.  Round table discussions are planned to address key questions such as:

  • What are the key science questions ahead?
  • What are the challenges and how to address  them?
  • What aspects of surface water observation and modelling are sufficiently mature for use in operational services? From Research and Development to Operational Use of remote sensing information in hydrological applications and water resources Management… how do we go from here?
  • How to strengthen the collaboration between the three communities: in-situ, modeling and space observation scientists? 

The expected outcome of the workshop is to define an action plan for the future and converge on recommendations from the Scientific Community
