Studying the hydrological cycle in the Mediterranean involves researching issues relating to floods and water scarcity, its response to climate change, and the sensitivity of the environment and societies to hydrologic variability. The development of a coordinated program for studying the hydrological cycle in the Mediterranean region was the focus of the fourth international Hydrological Cycle in Mediterranean Experiment (HyMeX; http://www.hymex.org) workshop, organized by a committee chaired by Silvio Davolio of the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate of the Italian National Research Council.
