Abstract. The Regional Research Network „Water in Central Asia“ (CAWa) funded by the German Federal Foreign Office consists of 18 remotely operated multi-parameter stations (ROMPS) in Central Asia. These stations were installed by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) in Potsdam, Germany in close cooperation with the Central-Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences (CAIAG) in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, the national hydrometeorological services in Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, the Ulugh Beg Astronomical Institute in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, and the Kabul Polytechnic University, Afghanistan. The primary objective of these stations is to support the establishment of a reliable data basis of meteorological and hydrological data especially in remote areas with extreme climate conditions in Central Asia for applications in climate and water monitoring. Up to now ten years of data are provided for an area of scarce station distribution and with limited open access data which can be used for a wide range of scientific or engineering applications. he data described in this manuscript will be made publicly available with the DOI https://doi.org/10.5880/GFZ.1.2.2020.002 (Zech et al., 2020) after final acceptance. In the meantime, find data via this temporary link: https://dataservices.gfz-potsdam.de/panmetaworks/review/084165424ac07f9ccb5391ab452e4dc9fff92076e265ee8bc86acc90a6ea287b/ or via the Sensor Data Storage System (SDSS) at http://sdss.caiag.kg.

Short summary
The Regional Research Network „Water in Central Asia“ (CAWa) funded by the German Federal Foreign Office consists of 18 remotely operated multi-parameter stations (ROMPS) in Central Asia and are operated by German and Central Asian institutes and hydrometeorological services. They primary provide up to 10 years of raw meteorological and hydrological data especially in remote areas with extreme climate conditions in Central Asia for applications in climate and water monitoring.
