Joint Session 71 Automated Guidance for Atmospheric Rivers, Flash Floods, and Other Hydrometeorological Extremes

Thursday, 16 January 2020: 3:30 PM-5:00 PM
258A (Boston Convention and Exhibition Center)
Hosts: (Joint between the 30th Conference on Weather Analysis and Forecasting (WAF)/26th Conference on Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP); and the 34th Conference on Hydrology )
Brandt D. Maxwell, NOAA/NWS, WFO San Diego, San Diego, CA

This will be a joint session between the 26th Conference on Numerical Weather Prediction (26NWP) and 34th Conference on Hydrology (34HYDRO).  We welcome abstracts on topics including (but not limited to) coupled atmosphere-hydrological models and automated guidance for atmospheric rivers, flash floods, and other hydrometeorological extremes.
