This session will be oriented toward prediction and decision support, highlighting cutting-edge efforts to advance short to medium range prediction systems in support of flood prevention operations and management. A broader slate of flood related topics are also of interest, including the characterization of observed flood events, estimation of flood risk, hydrologic and geomorphologic changes associated with floods, flood analysis and simulation, and flood related physical processes and phenomenon such as rain on snow, snowmelt, atmospheric rivers and tropical connections. The session also invites contributions related to the management of floods, such as emergency response activities, including case study assessments of recent, high-impact events..
