Delft-FEWS research and applicatons at EGU 2017

Are you attending the European Geosciences Union conference in April 2017 and struggling with the overwhelming choice of sessions? Some of our Delft-FEWS experts are involved in organizing several topical sessions at EGU. If you are interested in seeing some concrete applications of Delft-FEWS systems for research, innovation and data management in a wide field of water-related natural hazards and forecasting, you could visit the following sessions or presentations. Look for the abstracts and sessions online at

Session HS4.5/NH1.13 – Femke Davids
Operational forecasting and warning systems for natural hazards: challenges and innovation

Session HS4.3/AS4.36/NH1.12 – Jan Verkade
Ensemble hydro-meteorological forecasting

Session HS4.2/NH1.11 – Albrecht Weerts
Predictability, predictive uncertainty estimation and decision making in hydrological forecasting

Session HS4.4 – Micha Werner
Drought and water scarcity: monitoring, modelling and forecasting to improve hydro-meteorological risk management

Some examples of applied (research) abstracts using Delft-FEWS functionalities are verification of weather models, making a hydrological research data set for operational forecasting, comparison of data assimilation techniques, developing flood impact forecasting, and practical applications of forecasting systems in the world.
