10 years of the Sub-Division on Hydrological Forecasting at EGU (2008 – 2018)

10 years of the Sub-Division on Hydrological Forecasting at EGU (2008 – 2018)

Contributed by Maria-Helena Ramos and Femke Davids The field of Hydrological Forecasting has grown over the last ten years into an interesting and thought-provoking sub-division to the European Geosciences Union (EGU). Through this sub-division, at one of the largest Geoscience conferences in the world, we address many challenges that today’s hydrologists, and also users and decision-makers in the water sector, have to deal with. Below you will find an interesting read into the background and history of this field at…

Help build Ireland’s new Flood Forecast Centre!

Help build Ireland’s new Flood Forecast Centre!

Contributed by Sinéad Duffy, Met Éireann Here at Met Éireann, the Irish national meteorological service, we are working on building an operational Flood Forecast Centre (FFC) for fluvial and coastal floods. After widespread flooding across Ireland in December 2015/January 2016, the Government of Ireland took the decision to establish a National Flood Forecast and Warning Service (NFFWS). Met Éireann are working with the Office of Public Works (OPW) to make this a reality. The NFFWS will incorporate the operational FFC…
