Over the next two days several members of the NRFA team are attending the British Hydrological Society’s 13th National Hydrology Symposium. The conference theme is Hydrology: Advances in Theory and Practice and is being held at the University of Westminster on the 12th and 13th September 2018.
The programme promises a wide variety of speakers on topics including: ‘Hydrometric Data’, ‘Hydroecology’, ‘Droughts, Low Flows and Resources’, ‘Sediments and Habitats’, ‘Flood Hydrology’ and ‘Flood Modelling’.
NRFA staff contributions to the conference include the following presentations:
- ‘Trends in UK Peak Flow Data: When did they start?’ Adam Griffin, Gianni Vesuviano, Lisa Stewart
- ‘Regional differences in meteorological droughts in Great Britain’ Maliko Tanguy, Klaus Haslinger, Cecilia Svensson, Simon Parry, Lucy Barker & Christel Prudhomme
- ‘Insights into rainfall undercatch in differing gauge types and heights: the impact of wind speed and rainfall event intensity’ Katie Muchan
- ‘Testing novel tools and recent advances to meet decision maker needs for drought monitoring and early warning in the UK’ Lucy Barker, Jamie Hannaford, Maliko Tanguy, Matt Fry & Gemma Nash
- 'The hydrological state of play for intermittent rivers' Catherine Sefton, Simon Parry, Judy England, Geoffrey Angell, Rebecca Ross & Michael Eastman
And the following Posters:
- ‘Long-term changes in UK flooding: evidence from the latest ‘NRFA Peak Flow’ dataset’ Nikolaos Mastrantonas, Jamie Hannaford, Shaun Harrigan & Simon Parry
- ‘National River Flow Archive: The UK’s focal point for hydrometric data’ Stephen Turner, Katie Muchan, Cath Sefton, Jamie Hannaford & Isabella Tindall
