The IGCP 565 Project Follow-On: The Next Five Years

The IGCP 565 project began in 2008 and will end this year. The goals of the project are to develop, through a series of workshops, pilot projects that apply hydrogeodesy to regional water management, and to develop a framework for the joint interpretation of geodetic observations. To date a series of annual workshops took place and pilot studies were initiated with good success resulting in several peer review publications. During the last next five years several important international coordination activities have emerged. Next steps will hinge on these and proposed studies providing leverage. Plans are now underway to submit a follow-on IGCP project proposal during 2013 with a more focused set of applications projects in Africa. In this presentation the initial planning for the next IGCP will be discussed.
