GRDC ArcticHYCOS Stations - Summary Statistics by Country

date of issue August 16, 2021

The Arctic-HYCOS forms the Arctic region component of the the World Hydrological Cycle Observing System (WHYCOS) implemented to support existing international initiatives like the Executive Council Panel of Experts on Polar Observations, Research and Services (EC-PORS), Global Integrated Polar Prediction System (GIPPS), Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) and the projects of the Climate and Cryosphere Programme (CliC) in the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP).

The objective of the Arctic-HYCOS Project is to allow for the collection and sharing of hydrological data. A basic network of hydrological stations is being created by selecting key existing observation stations of the national hydrological networks within the Arctic region. The network will comprise stations that are best suited to monitor and detect changes in the Arctic hydrological regime, specifically related to climate change.

The dataset comprises currently time series data of 417 river discharge stations that already have been captured in the GRDC database out of the 631 identified stations.
