Special issue on Environmental changes and hazards in the Dead Sea region
Posted 08.09.2017
A new special issue entitled "Environmental changes and hazards in the Dead Sea region" is jointly organized between Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences (NHESS), Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (ACP), Hydrology and Earth System Sciences (HESS), and Solid Earth (SE). The objective of the SI is to compile research and recent advances on the atmospheric, hydrological, and geophysical processes and dynamics of relevance for the Dead Sea region and the middle East. It brings the Dead Sea region into focus since global and regional changes in the Earth system concur locally and impact humans in a unique way. Contributions shall be submitted online, selecting the special issue, by 30 June 2018.

10th HyMeX Workshop, 4-7 July 2017, Barcelona, Spain
Updated 08.09.2017
The 10th hyMeX workshop has been hosted by the Water Research Institute (IdRA) and the Faculty of Physics from the University of Barcelona, from 4 to 7 July 2017. Heavy precipitation, flash-flood and vulnerabilities, Mediterranean cyclones, ocean circulation and dense water formation, droughts and water resources, prediction and management of the water cycle, renewable energy, hazards and impacts, from nowcasting to climate scales: see programme and presentations here.

HyMeX in brief
HyMeX aims at a better understanding, quantification and modelling of the hydrological cycle in the Mediterranean, with emphasis on the predictability and evolution of extreme weather events, inter-annual to decadal variability of the Mediterranean coupled system, and associated trends in the context of global change. The multidisciplinary research and associated database developed within HyMeX aim to improve the observational and modelling systems, better predict extreme events, simulate the long-term water-cycle, and provide guidelines for adaptation measures.
