Poster Session Global Flood Forecasting and Mapping Posters

Wednesday, 9 January 2013: 2:30 PM-4:00 PM
Exhibit Hall 3 (Austin Convention Center)
Host: 27th Conference on Hydrology
Bart Nijssen, University of Washington, Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Seattle, WA and Curt Barrett, Advisor to USAID-OFDA, OFDA, Washington, DC

Satellite measurements combined with continued improvement in the resolution of operational global models have enabled the development of supranational, global and regional-scale flood monitoring and forecasting systems. This session invites presentations that discuss the development, implementation and application of such large-scale systems and related monitoring, nowcasting, flash-flood scale forecasting, high-resolution mapping and impact assessment studies. Interdisciplinary projects that prepare for an improved humanitarian response to flood events are of particular interest. Contact(s): Bart Nijssen, Ayse Sezin Tokar
