Dear GloFAS and GFM community,
The Copernicus Emergency Management Service (CEMS) is organising the ‘2nd Global Flood Forecasting and Monitoring Meeting’ which will be hosted online via Zoom Webinar and the Gather.Town platform on Wednesday 08 and Thursday 09 February 2023.
To register for the event, please click on the Zoom Webinar registration link to enter your details. Registration for the workshop will remain open until 31 January 2023.
The event focuses on recent advances in global flood forecasting and monitoring. The workshop will include sessions on developments to the Global Flood Awareness System (GloFAS) and the Global Flood Monitoring (GFM) products, to data access, use cases and applications, and open panel discussions.
Two sessions are scheduled over the two days of the workshop to accommodate people working in different time zones. The presentations will be held from 13:00 to 17:00 (UTC) during both days of the event. The full agenda of the workshop will be made to all registered participants shortly before the event.
The format of the workshop will be highly interactive, including discussions and booths in Gather.Town. Participants will have opportunities to connect with people from the GloFAS and GFM communities to discuss their work and expand their networks.
We hope you will attend!
We are eager to know how useful the Global Flood Awareness System (GloFAS) and the Global Flood Monitoring (GFM) are for your purposes. More importantly, we are keen to learn how we can improve the products and service. We are therefore looking forward to receiving your feedback for the reference period 2022.
The survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete, and we encourage you to add any suggestions/comments you may have by using the dedicated text boxes.
Are you curious to know the results of the 2021 survey? You can find the report here: https://www.globalfloods.eu/get-involved/users-feedbacks/eu. Please note that the 2021 survey only included GloFAS.
The 2022 survey is the first collection of feedbacks for both GloFAS and GFM. Nevertheless, you will be given the option to fill only GloFAS questions or only GFM questions."
