H3. Advances in forecasting flood and flood hazards

Modelling and observation techniques associated with flood forecasting have been fast advancing in recent years. Significant progress in stochastic and quantitative flood forecasting also enabled more comprehensive assessment of flood hazards and uncertainties. This session invites novel contributions in the development of flood now-/forecasting frameworks, comparative analysis of various techniques, quantitative precipitation now-/forecasting, stochastic analysis of floods and uncertainty, flash flood forecasting and mapping risks, application of quantitative flood forecasting in the relevant natural disaster management. We also welcome other relevant topics not listed above.

This session is organised under the auspices of the Australian Water and Energy Exchange Research Initiative (www.ozewex.org) that is part of the international GEWEX and HEPEX programmes.
