Organisation: European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF)

From 29 June to 1 July 2021, ECMWF will host a 3-day virtual workshop on Global hydrological modelling and forecasting.

Overview

Day 1 aims at presenting and discussing recent advances in global and large-scale hydrological modelling used in water cycle predictions up to medium-range, and in monitoring applications such as regional and global reanalyses. It will discuss the challenges involved in attaining skilful estimations of the water fluxes and reservoirs in the range of 1 to 25 km resolutions, making best use of Earth Observations to calibrate, validate or verify the model output.

Day 2 and 3 will focus on connecting large scale to local needs and decision making, as well as catchment-scale advances in hydrometeorological forecasting, addressing challenges of hydrological ensemble forecasting and monitoring.

The workshop will be organized under the umbrella of ECMWF, the Copernicus services CEMS and C3S, the Hydrological Ensemble Prediction EXperiment (HEPEX) and the Global Flood Partnership (GFP).
