Other HYCOS Projects

SADC-HYCOS
This project covers the 11 continental countries of the Southern African Development Community (SADC). Its implementation started in 1998 with the 2.40 million US$ grant from the European Commission funding. WMO has a supervisory role in the two-year project implementation. The Pilot Regional Centre (PRC) is hosted by the Directorate of Hydrology, Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) in Pretoria, South Africa

AOC-HYCOS

This project covers the 11 continental countries of the West and Central Africa which are involved in the pilot phase (one year) supported by the French Government (280.000 US $). The Pilot Regional Center is co-ordinated by the Niger Basin Autorithy (ABN) and the AGRHYMET Regional Centre located in Niamey (Niger). For the donors, the main objective of the pilot phase is to demonstrate the technical and institutionnal reliability of the AOC- HYCOS Project whose the cost is estimated to 6 M US $.

Objectives of MedAtlas

  • To Update the available data sets of temperature and salinity profiles measured in the Mediterranean Sea
  • To Check the data Quality (QC) for scientific use according to the IOC and MAST recommendations
  • To Merge the compiled data sets and update the climatological statistics with a resolution adapted to the Mediterranean space scales
  • To Make Available the numerical data on a user friendly medium

ESIMEAU

France, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, Greece, Netherlands are partners in this programme. IRD (ex ORSTOM) is already involved in the European Programme which is dealing with the implementation of a Hydrological Information System using GIS technologies and focused on interfacing data base with hydrological modelling. In this programme MED-HYCOS would like to exchange its experience in chronological data acquisition and processing with the competencies of its partners in the field of spacial processing.

The World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP)

This UN-wide programme seeks to develop the tools and skills needed to achieve a better understanding of those basic processes, management practices and policies that will help improve the supply and quality of global freshwater resources.

Environment Institute

Whether they are addressed to the scientific community or to meet request from EC services, many of EI activities are scientific ones sensu stricto. These range from studies on tropospheric ozone and on aerosols, on watershed water quality and hydrology, on coastal-sea eutrophication, and on bio-emission of greenhouse gases from natural systems. In the field of life sciences, the EI co-ordinates international projects on endocrine disrupting chemicals; on reproductive toxicity; haematotoxicity; and ecotoxicology. Concerning the Air Quality the quality of indoor air and its role in human health.
