Activities of the WMO Commission for Hydrology relevant for the GRDC

As one of the eight technical commissions of WMO, the Commission for Hydrology, CHy, shapes the water related activities of the WMO. This includes advice on the standardisation of various aspects of hydrologic observations, as well as on the sharing and exchanging of hydrologic data using modern information and communication technology. At its 14th session in November 2012, the CHy established a new Thematic Area on “Data Operations and Management”  to their Programme of Work.

The activities and results of the work, particularly of the “Data Operations and Management” theme, give the principal direction to operating the GRDC in respect to the sharing and exchange of hydrological information, data and data products.
