Leader: J.C. Calvet (CNRM-GAME) and J. Polcher (IPSL) / Partners: IPSL, CNRM-GAME, LEGOS-CEFREM

Objectives: The aim of this task is to produce an improved evaluation of the continental water cycle from observation datasets by the use of existing long-term in-situ and satellite products, new satellite products (surface soil moisture derived from microwave observations, leaf area index), long-term river-runoff observations and reconstructions and in-situ measurements collected in the HyMeX framework. This task is divided into 3 sub-tasks:
