  • HS29 session: New Technology for Mitigating Flood Disaster Under Climate Change

    The objectives of this meeting is to address the various approaches and methods used to predict and manage on flood disaster under climate change. By sharing of new, innovative developments and methodologies against Typhoon and flash flood including large urban areas, we will explore countermeasures to sustain balance between structural and nonstructural approaches.

    The major outcomes are expected as follows:
    • Extreme rainfall analysis by applying stationary/nonstationary method
    • Radar application for real-time flood forecasting
    • Rapid and accurate flood forecast by machine learning technique
    • Combination of structural/nonstructural mesasures for flood mitigation
    • Flood hazard mapping in urban area considering drainage system
    • Estimation of flood damages and evacuation planning for residents
  • HS47 session: Precipitation Induced Disasters: Observation, Prediction, Mitigation, and Adaptation

    Precipitation and disasters

    Precipitation is the primary driver of natural disasters such as floods and droughts which pose serious threat to human society and natural environment at a global scale. Urbanizations and climate changes exacerbate these threats. Therefore, a thorough understanding on the various mechanisms linking precipitation, disasters, and human adaptation is essential to develop a system that is resilient and robust against the precipitation-induced disasters.

    Taken this, this session aims to gather novel contributions on the following topics:
    • Spatial and temporal pattern change of extreme precipitation leading to disasters at both global and local scale
    • Novel techniques of precipitation downscaling and future weather generation
    • Assessment of the risks posed by precipitation considering climate change and urbanization
    • Adaptation strategies of human society to precipitation-induced disasters
    • Novel development of flood forecast and warning systems
    • Application of remote sensing techniques to observe precipitation-induced disasters
  • Accepted abstracts
    • HS29-A017: Just How Uncertain Are Our Extreme Flow Estimations for Flood Hazard Modeling in Ungauged Basins?
    • HS47-A005: Towards Advanced Floodway Modeling
