HyMeX - HYdrological cycle in the Mediterranean EXperiment


HyMex seeks to make progress in the understanding of the Mediterranean climate to better prepare for environmental challenges such as extreme events and climate change impacts.
The HyMeX science objectives are devoted to:
  • improve the understanding of the water cycle, with emphasis on extreme events,
  • monitoring and modelling the Mediterranean atmosphere-land-ocean coupled system, its variability from the event to the seasonal and interannual scales, and its characteristics over one decade (2010-2020) in the context of global change,
  • assess the social and economic vulnerability to extreme events and adaptation capacity.

The multidisciplinary research and the database developed within HyMeX aim to contribute to:

  • improve observational and modelling systems, especially for coupled systems,
  • better predict extreme events,
  • simulate the long-term water-cycle more accurately,
  • provide guidelines for adaptation measures, especially in the context of global change.
