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: Registration now open NOTE: Last day for registration is 15 September. 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…

Women In Hydrological Forecasting: a Call for Action

Women In Hydrological Forecasting: a Call for Action

Today is International Women’s Day, and many professional societies and communities of practice reflect on issues of gender balance, recognising achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic, political or otherwise. Within HEPEX, our then HEPEX columnist Bettina Schaefli reflected on gender balance in the EGU, raising the “big open question is here of course what we can do about this in our everyday work?”. Hydrological forecasting has many more individuals that deserve mentioning. However, if we…

Large ensemble simulations for the study of extreme hydrological events

Large ensemble simulations for the study of extreme hydrological events

Contributed by Karin van der Wiel, KNMI*. The investigation of extreme hydrological events is often limited by the length of observed records or model simulations. For this reason many statistical extrapolation methods have been developed. In a recent GRL paper we advocate a novel method for the study of extreme events, which does not rely on such extrapolations (Van der Wiel et al., 2019). In this blog post I invite you to take a slight step outside the HEPEX world…
