About the Data Site of Hydrological Cycle Observational Research Program,
Institute of Observational Research for Global Change

Aims
The Data Site of Hydrological Cycle Observational Research Program will make fundamental contributions to hydrometeorological science and will disseminate obseravational information in order to advance understanding of the global climate system.

The Hydrological Cycle Observational Research Program (HCORP) focuses on whole eastern Eurasia from the tropics to Arctic, in which characteristic hydrological cycles strongly influence climate system of the global scale and the continent scale. The tropical region is the heat source of the earth, including the Asian monsoon region, which may show abnormal moisture convergence and rain enhanced by global warming. The Eurasian cryosphere region shows great anxiety about strong warming and exerts a wide-area influence on hydrological cycle through the change in snow and ice/vegetation/water. As a part of our study activities, HCORP archives and distributes up-to-date hydrometeorological datasets provided by our observation network in these regions.
