Forecasting session at AOGS 2016 – Beijing, China

Contributed by David Robertson, CSIRO

AOGS2016This year, the Annual Meeting of the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society will be held in Beijing from 31 July to 5 August, and will include a session organised under the auspices of HEPEX.

The session has a broad scope and seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners undertaking hydrological forecasting related work in the Asia and Oceania regions. Presentations are invited on:

  • Integration of weather and climate forecasts into streamflow forecasting;
  • Methods for efficiently post-processing atmospheric predictions for hydrological applications;
  • Evaluation of ensemble hydro-meteorological forecasts;
  • Methods for estimating and reducing hydrologic predictive uncertainty including multi-model combination, data assimilation and post processing;
  • Communicating predictive uncertainty and developing risk-based decision support systems for emergence management;
  • Application of forecast information for water resources management including system simulation and optimisation.

Details of the session HS26 – Advances In Ensemble Hydro-meteorological Forecasting: Methods And Applications are available here, or contact for further information.

Abstracts are due by 19th February 2016.

The Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS) was established in 2003 to promote geosciences and its application for the benefit of humanity, specifically in Asia and Oceania and with an overarching approach to global issues.

The Asia-Oceania region is particularly vulnerable to natural hazards, accounting for almost 80% human lives lost globally. AOGS is deeply involved in addressing hazard related issues through improving our understanding of the genesis of hazards through scientific, social and technical approaches.

AOGS holds annual conventions providing opportunity for exchanging scientific knowledge and discussion to address important geo-scientific issues among academia, research institutions and the public.
