  1. Role of hydrology in the next CIS Work Programme? Markku Puupponen Coordinator, World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Network of European Hydrological Services

  2. ”Hydrology should be basis for any water resources assessment and management” • Well developed monitoring infrastructures • Database management and development • Production processes (monitoring – data – information) • Tools for water resources assessment • Geo-informatics (GIS, mapping) for water resources • Close links with meteorological and climatological communities – forecasting, climate change and variability • Flood and draught research • Hydraulics applications – links with aquatic ecology • Interactions and integration between data, products and research

  3. Hydrological Services expertise profile • Well developed monitoring infrastructures • Database management and development • Production processes (monitoring – data – information) • Tools – especially modelling – for water resources assessment • Geo-informatics (GIS, mapping) for water resources • Close links with meteorological and climatological communities – forecasting, climate change and variability • Flood and draught research • Hydraulics applications – links with aquatic ecology • Interactions and integration between data, products and research

  4. CIS and hydrology • So far, biology and chemistry have formed the ”water science base”, while hydrology has played a modest role • The hydrological community will hopefully be able to give a stronger contribution to the next CIS Work Programme • Option 1: Active participation in subgroups/ activities, where hydrological expertise can be utilised • Option 2: Many Hydrological Services have proposed a hydrological activity within CIS – e.g. to develop applications related to monitoring, or fill other ”gabs” • Option 3: Worshop(s) to address hydrological aspects

  5. CIS 2007 – 2009 – Important topics for WMO and Hydrological Services • Hydrological monitoring and assessment • more efficient use – wide field of applications • Hydrological extremes – floods and droughts • Flood Directive vs WFD? • support for drought mitigaton • Climate and water • impacts, adaptation, mitigation, policy • Integrated river basin management and planning • similar interest of WFD and WMO • Multidisciplinary work • within water sciences
