This Conference aims at:

  • Reviewing the latest advances and results in the use of EO technology to monitor and characterise the different components of the water cycle.
  • Reviewing the progress and latest results in water cycle research with major focus on EO- advances in the domain of water and energy cycle, water cycle in climate, hydrology, hydro-climatic extremes and water resources and climate adaptation, water-energy-food nexus.
  • Exploring the latest advances in novel EO technologies, mission concepts, new mission ideas and future EO missions under preparation by space agencies and industry
  • Identifying the major scientific challenges, observation gaps and research needs for the coming years
  • Identifying the coming opportunities offered by the increasing international EO capacity from space in synergy with in-situ observations, citizen science, advance modelling, new technologies and interdisciplinary research
  • Exploring effective mechanisms to promote networking and collaborative research in global water sciences, bringing together different expertise, data and resources in a synergistic manner ensuring that the final result may be bigger than the sum of the parts
  • Advancing towards the definition of major scientific priorities in water cycle research that may drive scientific activities of ESA and other partners in the coming years.
