Scientific Approaches

We defined followint 6 approaches to achieve our project objectives.

  • Observation and Estimation of Variation and Extremes in Asian Land Precipitation and Important Variables
  • Process Studies of Asian Land Precipitation Focusing on Diverse Land-Atmosphere Interactions
  • Understanding and Prediction of Variability of Asian Monsoon from Subseasonal to Interdecadal Time Scales
  • High Resolution Land Surface Hydrological Modeling and Monitoring Incorporating Impacts of Human Water Withdrawal, Agriculture, Vegetation and Cryosphere
  • Coordinated Observation and Modeling Initiatives
  • Detection and Projection of the Climate Change Impact on Regional Precipitation in the Asian Monsoon Region
