2018 Pre-Conference Courses Announced
1st March 2018
Building on the support for the Training Course provided at the Newcastle Conference two streams are being offered this year, on Monday 28 May.
Associate Professor Jacky Croke from the Centre for Catchment and Flood Management will deliver two half day courses on Catchment Geomorphology and Palaeoflood Hydrology.
The morning course Reading the Landscape for effective solutions to flood design, planning and emergency services will enable participants to apply key components of geomorphology that will transform understanding of floodplains. The afternoon course Reducing Uncertainty in Flood Predictions using old flood deposits explains how to incorporate palaeofloods into future predictions of flood frequency and magnitude.
Registration will be available at the Conference Website: http://floodplainconference.com/
Also two seminars of two hour duration are being developed by Mark Forest from HDR to provide an Update on HEC-RAS Version 5.0.4, and High Resolution, Gauge-adjusted Radar Rainfall: The Next Level of Modeling Storm Runoff. Details will be available shortly.
