APHRODITE-2 Sakura Science Workshop in Hirosaki

Date: 22 - 29 August , 2018

Place: Hirosaki University

To make APHRODITE precipitation grid data and Evaluate extreme precipitaion This program aims to learn how to create Asian Precipitation -- Highly Resolved Observation DataIntegration Towards Evaluation of water resources (APHRODITE) product. It is world's known accurate daily grid precipitaion data, and currently more than 5,000 users in the world are operating it. Now, APHRODITE project second phase (APHRODITE-2) is on going to represent precipitation extreme events, since present (reseased) gathers young staffs/students who have already handled APHRODITE data and would like to make APHRODITE data by themselves. In addition, we teach the most updated scheme to represent extreme precipitation to the participants. Based on this improvement, users can use APHRODITE new products for evaluating satellite estimates and for improving meteological forecasts. Participants can communicate with young staffs/students at Hirosaki University.
Participation: It is a very good opportunity to learn the APHRODITE-2 products that will be released soon. Anybody is welcome to attend the workshop as far as you can come of your own funding, and is seriously interested in APHRODITE-2 workshop. If he/she is able to provide daily or sub-daily precipitation and/or temperature data of his/her country, he/she is more than welcome and we will appreciate his/her contribution.

If you have an interest, please e-mail us at aphrodite.secretary"at" by 15 August 2018.
