HyMeX working groups


WG1 WG2 WG3 WG4 WG5 All WGs Members access to WGs


Each Working Group addresses one of the five major themes of HyMeX and HyMeX Science Plan which describes the scientific questions to be tackled and defines the general programme strategy. Scientific activities carried out in the programme are coordinated within the WGs.



WG2: Hydrological Continental cycle (see section 3.2 of the WhiteBook)


The rainfall climatology of the Mediterranean region is characterised by dry summers frequently associated with very long drought periods, followed by fall and winter precipitation that are mostly very intense. This results in high daily/seasonal variability in aquifer recharge, river discharge, soil water content and vegetation characteristics, the interactions of which with the atmosphere are not well known. This includes for example the impact of the large extension forest fires associated with drought during summer on the evapotranspiration component of the hydrological cycle. The role of the surface states (land use/land cover) and of the soils on rainfall modulation needs also to be better understood. Hydrological and hydrogeological transfer functions are also characteristic of the Mediterranean basin, notably because of the specificities of the peri-mediterranean karstic and sedimentary aquifers. Progress in their understanding is of primary importance for the development of integrated management of the hydrosystems, and its adaptation to anthropogenic pressure and climate change.
