With an apology for cross-posting, we would like to draw your attention to the following session that we are organizing at the EGU General Assembly in Vienna (7-12 April 2013):
Reducing uncertainties in modelling hydro-meteorological processes using earth observations
Conveners: Rogier Van der Velde, Chiara Corbari, Carsten Montzka
Earth observations have demonstrated to be capable of capturing spatially organized information on key hydro-meteorological variables related to the land surface (e.g. soil moisture, evapotranspiration, temperature), atmosphere (e.g. rainfall) and cryosphere (e.g. snow albedo, snow water equivalent). The initiation of various national and international space as well as science programmes has ensured a further operationalization of the space infrastructure. The European example is the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) programme. These and other initiatives are expected to generate a wealth of data relevant for the hydro-meteorological community.
The availability of earth observations alone is, however, in many cases not sufficient for operational integrated water resources management because the remote sensors typically do not observe the exact same variable that is of interest and at the spatial resolution suitable to correctly catch the process. Integration of earth observations with distributed physically process-based models is an important strategy for deriving of value added products. In this context, the earth observations as such are employed for reducing uncertainties in the modelling of processes. An improvement in the reliability of model simulations can be achieved by updating the simulated state with the observed information via a comprehensive data assimilation scheme. On the other hand, earth observations can also contribute to reliability of model simulations by providing information on the model parameters either directly or via model inversion.
This session solicits for contributions that demonstrate improved simulation of hydro-meteorological processes by using earth observations either for (i) state updating or (ii) providing model parameters or (iii) model calibration. The focus is specifically on basin scale applications.

ROSES-12 Amendment 26: Final text in ROSES-12 via Appendix A.31, Interdisciplinary Research in Earth Science.
This solicitation is for new and successor interdisciplinary research investigations within NASA’s Interdisciplinary Research in Earth Science (IDS) program. Proposed research investigations will meet the following criteria: a) offer a fundamental advance to our understanding of the Earth system; b) be based on remote sensing data, especially satellite observations, but including suborbital sensors as appropriate; c) go beyond correlation of data sets and seek to understand the underlying causality of change through determination of the specific physical, chemical, and/or biological processes involved; d) be truly interdisciplinary in scope by involving traditionally disparate disciplines of the Earth sciences; and e) address at least one of the five specific themes listed in this solicitation:
• Understanding Earth System Vulnerabilities to Climate Extremes
• Impacts of Changing Polar Ice Cover
• Water and Energy Cycle Impacts of Biomass Burning
• Impacts of Population growth on watersheds and coastal ecology
• Role of Permafrost in a Changing Climate
Notices of Intent are requested by March 1, 2013, and proposals are due by April 1, 2013.
On or about December 13, 2012, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2012” (NNH12ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and will appear on the RSS feed at: http://nasascience.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2012.
Questions concerning this program may be addressed to Thomas Wagner, Earth Science Division, Science Mission Directorate, NASA Headquarters, Washington, DC 20546-0001. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Telephone: (202) 358-4682.
