ESSL suggests this seminar for advanced meteorologists and hydrologists, experienced warning forecasters and private as well as governmental risk assessors:
Heavy precipitation is a particular challenge to forecast, given the small spatial and temporal scales on which it occurs, and the limited predictability of deep convection. The hazards associated with flash flooding are an even greater challenge, as detailed information about hydrology and antecedent conditions is also required.
This lecture will address the current state of knowledge about heavy rainfall and flash flooding, along with current research aimed at improving forecasts through increased understanding and sophisticated numerical modeling techniques.
