Engagement and Impact through Themed Joint Sessions

We are expecting, with your participation and involvement, these themed joint sessions will serve as a catalyst for focusing the attention of the research and operational communities (and also those who are involved in accelerating the transition of research results into operations) on the exciting possibilities related to advancing predictive capabilities across many fields and applications.

The Verification of Hydrometeorological Predictions: Theory, Methods and Case Studies

The American Meteorology Society’s Committee on Probability and Statistics and the Committee on Hydrology are seeking papers for a themed joint session focusing on the application of probabilistic and statistical verification techniques to hydrometeorological predictions. Probabilistic and statistical forecasting of extreme flooding events, droughts, daily to seasonal streamflow, water resource management and water supply forecasting are essential in hydrometeorology and hydrological system forecasting and decision-making. The interests of this joint themed session are to highlight current verification methods and quantify the strengths and weaknesses of probabilistic and statistical forecasting frameworks in the hydrological sciences. Topics of interest include next generation hydrological model verification measures using probability and statistics, error and uncertainty analysis and optimization techniques in evaluating hydrological forecasts relative to their corresponding observations.
