PannEx is in its way to become a Regional Hydroclimate Project (RHP) of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Global Energy and Water Exchanges Project (GEWEX). The GEWEX aims to observe, understand and model the hydrological cycle and energy fluxes in the Earth’s atmosphere and at the surface. It proceeds by means of an integrated program of research, observations and science activities that focuses on the atmospheric, terrestrial, radiative, hydrological, coupled processes and interactions that determine the global and regional hydrological cycle, radiation and energy transitions, and their involvement in climate change. The almost closed structure of the Pannonian basin makes it a very good natural laboratory for the study of the water and energy cycles, focusing on the physical processes of relevance. This is the area of interest for PannEx (text from https://sites.google.com/site/projectpannex/).
AgMnet+ members are involved into the PannEx initiative.
