Postdoc position: rainfall prediction using ensemble forecasts
CNRM, Toulouse, France
Closing date: 31 January 2019
Starting date: Year 2019
Duration: 10 months
The objective of this work is to test, validate and optimize a software suite that converts numerical weather forecasting data into ensembles of rainfall predictions for hydrological models. The dataset will include nowcasting data, deterministic and ensemble numerical weather prediction data over a sample of flood-prone test cases. The quality of the results will be monitored using probabilistic objective verification against rainfall observations.
