10 – 14 September 2018 / Wiener Neustadt, Austria
Heavy precipitation is a particular challenge to forecast, given the small spatial and temporal scales on which it occurs, and the limited predictability of deep convection. The hazards associated with flash flooding are an even greater challenge, as detailed information about hydrology and antecedent conditions is also required. In this seminar, Prof. Russ Schumacher from Colorado State University, USA, will address the current state of knowledge about heavy rainfall and flash flooding, plus current research aimed at improving forecasts through increased understanding and sophisticated numerical modelling techniques.
The seminar includes hand-on forecasting exercises during the afternoon. At the end of the week, participants may choose to take part in an exam. Participants that pass this exam receive a Testimonial.
