Joint workshop on CAHMDA-VI and HEPEX-DAFOH III

Contributed by Albrecht Weerts

The sixth international conference on CAtchment-based Hydrological Model Data Assimilation (CAHMDA-VI) will be held jointly with the third International Workshop on Data Assimilation For Operational Hydrology and water management of the Hydrologic Ensemble Prediction Experiment (HEPEX-DAFOH III) in Austin, Texas, USA, September 8-12, 2014.

As a continuation of the past successful workshops of CAMADA and HEPEX-DAFOH, the Austin workshop focuses on assessing recent advances in observing, modeling, and data assimilation approaches with a goal to understand, observe and predict hydrological processes, and to build synergism with operational hydrology.

Particular attention will be given to extreme events, such as droughts and floods, as well as the development and application of data assimilation approaches to improving operational hydrological forecasting and water resources management.

Invited key notes, short poster presentations and extensive discussions will be main forms of the workshop. Pre-workshop data assimilation training course and post-workshop excursions will be organized.
