Satellite inspired hydrology in an uncertain future – a joint H SAF and HEPEX workshop

Satellite inspired hydrology in an uncertain future – a joint H SAF and HEPEX workshop

When: 25-28 November 2019 Where: ECMWF , Reading, UK How: Abstracts submission and registration now open Five years ago, H SAF and HEPEX organised a joint workshop on “Coupled hydrology” at ECMWF, and now it is time to revisit the subject. Last time around the workshop was split into first an H SAF part, followed by a joint session and finished with a HEPEX workshop. This time the idea is to have joint sessions all through the workshop to further…

CNDS Summer School on Natural Hazards & Disaster Risk Reduction

CNDS Summer School on Natural Hazards & Disaster Risk Reduction

Contributed by Siobhan Dolan, University of Reading. The Centre for Natural Hazards and Disaster Science (CNDS) held a summer school at their department at Uppsala University for early career researchers (ECR) who had an interest in learning more about ‘Natural Hazards in the Anthropocene’ and disaster risk reduction (DRR). This summer school was held on 20-24th August and had 36 ECRs attending, including myself. I am a doctoral researcher from the University of Reading and one of the 13 NERC…
