Welcome to Session D7 on Regional monsoon hydrological cycle over Asia and Australasia

Date: Thursday 2016-05-19
Time: 14.00 - 17.00
Room: to be confirmed later
Session Coordinators: Dr. J. Sanjay, Prof. Fredolin Tangang, Dr. Hyun-Suk Kang and Prof. Jason Evans


Relevant CORDEX Domains: CORDEX South Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia and Australasia

Short Session Abstract: Monsoon precipitation is the primary source of water-supply for several countries in Asia and Australasia and is pivotal for the regional hydrological cycle.There are considerable uncertainties in the current understanding of monsoon precipitation and hydrological response to climate change across these regions. Under the umbrella of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP)’s Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX), four initiatives have been established in these regions and ongoing including CORDEX South Asia, CORDEX Southeast Asia, CORDEX East Asia and CORDEX Australasia. This session provides opportunity to scientists, students and early career researchers, within and outside the CORDEX initiatives, for cross-domain discussions, interactions and exchange of knowledge regarding the opportunities, benefits and challenges in addressing various scientific issues concerning the monsoon hydrological cycle over the Asian and Australasian region, its variability on different time-scales and likely changes in the future.>Contributions are encouraged from both Models (global, regional, etc) and Observation (eg., Insitu, satellite remote sensing, paleoclimate records, etc) based studies.


Likely room size required: About 40 persons
