Who we are
OzEWEX is a volunteer organisation that consists mainly of active researchers in universities and government agencies. It was established in October 2012 as an Initiation Phase Regional Hydroclimate Project under the auspices of the Global and regional Energy and Water Exchanges (GEWEX) program, an internationally coordinated effort to integrate research and observations. GEWEX is the largest initiative of its kind, focusing on the observation, understanding and prediction of the global and regional water and energy budgets and the way they are affected by interactions between land and atmosphere.
Day-to-day coordination is by the secretariat and chair, Albert Van Dijk (personal homepage).
