Flood forecasting is one of the most poorly understood disciplines in the fields of hydrology and water management. The Manitoba CWRA Branch will host a one-day workshop where leading experts from a variety of fields will provide in-depth technical presentations to help demystify some of the many complexities surrounding the physical processes responsible for extreme runoff events and to describe past forecasting methodologies. More importantly, this workshop will provide a context for contemporary forecasting models and shed light on reasonable limits of confidence and reliability that can be expected from them. Time for questions and group discussion will be provided following each presenter, and a panel of experts will participate in an interactive discussion to conclude the workshop.
Fees: CWRA Members: $150, CWRA Non-members: $180, Students: $80
