Abstract:
The recovery and extension of precipitation time series in the Mediterranean region was the focus of a workshop held as a side event during the "11th Plinius Conference on Mediterranean Storms". The workshop was the first occasion for a joint meeting of three projects -Mediterranean Climate Variability and Predictability (MedCLIVAR), Hydrological Cycle in the Mediterranean Experiment (HyMeX), and Mediterranean Flow Regimes From International Experimental and Network Data (MedFriend)- all of which share an interest in the analysis of precipitation at regional scales. Contributions were also presented by the coordinator of the Mediterranean Experiment (MEDEX) project and the chair of the Mediterranean Climate Data Rescue (MEDARE) project.The workshop provided a forum for discussing the present state of data recovery initiatives aimed at improving knowledge of the time-space distribution of precipitation in the Mediterranean region, where rain is simultaneously a crucial resource (rain is scarce over a large fraction of the region) and a risk factor producing floods and resultant loss of life and property.
