2018 HEPEX workshop, Melbourne, Australia: Breaking the barriers

2018 HEPEX workshop, Melbourne, Australia: Breaking the barriers

Contributed by James Bennett (CSIRO) and local organizers team In the afterglow of the highly successful 2016 HEPEX workshop in Quebec City, Canada, the planning for the next HEPEX workshop in 2018 in Melbourne, Australia is underway. Melbourne is far way for many HEPEXers, so we thought we would give an early warning of this workshop to give you all some planning time. With this in mind, we plan to hold the workshop in February 6-8, 2018. This is the…

Meeting user needs for sub-seasonal streamflow forecasts in Australia

Meeting user needs for sub-seasonal streamflow forecasts in Australia

By Tongtiegang Zhao, Andrew Schepen and Q.J. Wang, members of the CSIRO Columnist Team Good streamflow forecasts allow water management agencies to make better decisions and achieve more efficient water use. Currently, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology provides seasonal forecasts of three-month-total streamflow for over 200 gauging stations around Australia. Forecast users, particularly water management agencies, also require sub-seasonal streamflow forecasts, so that they can better plan short-term water use. Our recent study responds to this user need by testing ensemble sub-seasonal to seasonal…
