Convener:*Jun Matsumoto(Deaprtment of Geography, Tokyo Metropolitan University), Taikan Oki(Institute of Industrial Science, The University of Tokyo), Atsushi Higuchi(Center for Environmental Remote Sensing (CEReS), Chiba University, Japan), Shinjiro Kanae(School of Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology), Hiroshi Takahashi(Graduate School of Urban Environmental Sciences, Tokyo Metropolitan University)

In the Asian region, water-related climate is one of the key issues for its sustainability. Monsoon Asian Hydro-Atmosphere Scientific Research and Prediction Initiative (MAHASRI) has been focused on both atmospheric and hydrological sciences (meteorology, climatology and hydrology), and applications (agriculture, water-related disaster, etc) as one of the WCRP/GEWEX/GHP international projects. It has been also collaborated with WCRP project, Asian Monsoon Year (AMY 2007-2012) and the AMY Re-analysis data will be released soon. This session will be open for all fields related with Asian monsoon hydroclimate, regardless of the participation in the above projects, and will discuss future collaboration among related international researches.
