Non-WATCH Conferences & Workshops

At the COST733 WG4 Workshop in March, studies applying Weather Type Classifications (WTCs) to different purposes including air quality, hydrology, climatological mapping, forest fires, climate change and variability and risks and hazards were presented. On the basis of the presentations possible evaluation methods to compare the applicability of different WTCs were discussed, and similarities and differences as well as advantages and disadvantages of various WTCs were compared.

The purpose of the UNESCO workshop in September, was for UNESCO to be informed about the latest developments and research questions concerning water and climate change. Their interest was twofold, on the one hand to strengthen their basis to prepare a contribution to the World Water Forum 2009, on the other hand to review their programmes in light of current scientific issues.

At the COST733 Mid-term conference in November "Advances in weather and circulation types classifications and applications"various sessions on the theory and development of weather type classification (WTC) methods as well as on the COST733 WTC database and various WTC applications were hold, including contributions from WATCH partners.
