Open global data sources in climate and hydrology workshop

Open global data sources in climate and hydrology workshop

From the 31st of May to the 2nd of June PIK team conducted the workshop on ''Open global data sources in climate and hydrology'' for master’s students at the National University of Uzbekistan named after Mirzo Ulugbek (NUU) in Tashkent. The main goal of the workshop was to present different open global databases that are relevant to the Central Asian region and can be useful for everyone who works in the climate or hydrological field.

Dr. Fallah has demonstrated how to use the IPCC WGI Interactive Atlas where students could analyse tera-bytes of CMIP6 model outputs.

Dr. Didovets has presented - a new interactive web platform developed by PIK. This platform shows possible climate change impacts on different sectors in various regions across the world. Recently, the Central Asian region was added as an additional focus region for two sectors: climate and agriculture.

With this platform, students could analyse how climate will change under different scenarios on a national and regional level by the end of the century.

In addition, the PIK team has visited a group of bachelor students during their summer practical training on Charvak Reservoir next to Tashkent. Stefanie Wesh and Iulii Didovets were discussing career opportunities in climate and hydrological science with students.
