DISTRIBUTED RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE FOR HYDRO-METEOROLOGY STUDY

Personal tools

The DRIHM project started

Predicting weather and climate and its impacts on the environment, including hazards such as floods and landslides, is still one of the main challenges of the 21st century with significant societal and economic implications.  

The DRIHM (Distributed Research Infrastructure for Hydro-Meteorology) project (duration 3.5 years) intends to develop a prototype e-Science environment to facilitate this collaboration and provide end-to-end HMR services (models, datasets and post-processing tools) at the European level, with the ability to expand to global scale. The objectives of DRIHM are to lead the definition of a common long-term strategy, to foster the development of new HMR models and observational archives for the study of severe hydrometeorological events, to promote the execution and analysis of high-end simulations, and to support the dissemination of predictive models as decision analysis tools.

DRIHM is an important outcome from the DRIHMS project and will exploit the work done, especially the White Paper.
