The next webinar will take place on 28 October (1-2pm) by Dr. Christopher White on Future of Hydrological Forecasting. Chris is the Director of Postgraduate Research and Head of the Water, Environment, Sustainability and Public Health (WESP) research centre in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.  He specialises in the understanding, modelling and prediction of extreme weather events on both the extended-range 'sub seasonal-to-seasonal (S2S)' and climate timescales.

As Chris explains: “Hydrological forecasting is one of the most effective water resource management and flood and drought disaster risk mitigation measures. Hydrological forecasts rely heavily on data and models, which have seen continuous development and improvement over recent years. However, inherent uncertainties will always remain, meaning that decisions are (and will continue to be) made in the face of uncertainty. This presentation will demonstrate (recent) progress in hydrological forecasting across various predictive timescales, ranging from real-time to seasonal to climatic, and explore the future potential of hydrological forecasting.”
