ECMWF are hosting a three-day virtual event titled "Connecting global to local hydrological modelling and forecasting: scientific advances and challenges" from 29 June 2021 to 01 July 2021.
The workshop is organised by ECMWF, the Copernicus Emergency Management Service (CEMS), the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), the Hydrological Ensemble Prediction EXperiment (HEPEX) and the Global Flood Partnership (GFP).
Registration for the event remains open until 28 June 2021. To register for the event, please visit the workshop page.
The event focuses on recent advances in global and large-scale hydrological modelling used in water cycle predictions from the medium range up to seasonal time horizons. It will cover connecting large-scale to local needs and decision-making as well as catchment-scale advances in hydrometeorological forecasting. It will also include monitoring applications, such as local data assimilation and regional and global reanalyses.
Six sessions are scheduled for two time blocks (TBs) per day to accommodate people working in different time zones. The first block of presentations will be held from 9:00 to 11:30 BST and a second block from 15:00 to 17:30 BST over the three days of the event. You can find out more about our confirmed guest speakers who will be presenting their work in a keynote talk for each of the six sessions. The full agenda of the workshop will be made available on the workshop page soon.
The format of the workshop will be highly interactive, including abstract pitches and presentations of posters in Gather.Town. Participants will have opportunities to connect with people and their work and expand their networks. “This is a great opportunity for the hydrological community to discuss challenges and achievements in hydrological forecasting and modelling across scales, from global to local, and how the methods and products can help local decision-making,“ said Christel Prudhomme, the Environmental Forecasts Team Leader at ECMWF and local organiser of the workshop.
We hope you will attend!
