Abstract/Summary

The joint workshop of the European Union Water and Global Change (WATCH) Project and GEWEX Local Coupled Project (LoCo) Workshop brought together experts on hydrological land-atmosphere coupling to assess current knowledge of land-atmosphere coupling and develop plans for future studies. Research in modelling and observing the degree of landatmosphere coupling and feedbacks on local and regional scales has been evolving since the start of the well-known GEWEX Global Land Atmospheric Coupling Experiment (GLACE). WATCH addresses hydrological land-atmosphere coupling, and LoCo under the GEWEX Global Land Atmosphere System Study (GLASS) is studying local land-atmosphere coupling to identify conditions or areas where land-atmosphere interaction has a significant impact on the local climate. LoCo also designs model intercomparison studies. Results from the workshop included a better definition of local coupling and an outline of an overview scientific paper on the topic.
