The program structure will allocate time for oral and poster presentations as well as a plenary discussion.
The topics of the workshop are listed here.
|Prof Hannah Cloke
Hannah is a hydrologist and physical geographer specializing in land surface modelling, flood forecasting, applications of Numerical Weather Predictions and catchment hydrology. Her current research focuses on the theoretical and practical development of early warning systems for natural hazards, particularly for floods and droughts and disaster risk management. She is an elected fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and the Royal Meteorological Society. She works closely with the Environment Agency, the UK Met Office, the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) as well as a wide range of other national and international partners.
