(WACMOS-MED)

Background

Monitoring the water cycle from satellite observations is one of the major goals of the EO community and closing the water budget has been a long-standing objective of international programs. After years of hard work, calibrating satellite data, improving inversion techniques, and facilitating the coherency of retrievals, it is admitted that the water cycle budget can now be closed.

Scopo

WACMOS-MED project has two main objectives: 1) study/improve the water budget at a regional level from EO data, and 2) to support the Hydrological cycle in the Mediterranean Experiment (HYMEX) initiative to better monitor the water cycle in the Mediterranean region.
