Flood CC

Sign-up Form Flood Cross Cut Initiative

The GEWEX vision for a flood crosscutting initiative (Flood CC) is focused on overcoming barriers in designing appropriate modeling architectures to represent rapid rainfall-runoff processes and mechanisms within Earth system models across current and future flood-prone regions.
Furthermore, Flood CC aims to identify proper strategies to ensure scientific understanding of historical floods and translate that knowledge into future projections to enable prediction of the processes governing the probability, occurrence, and impacts of flood-generating rainfall. Strengthening flood monitoring and warning systems to advance our understanding, risk assessment, and modeling capabilities will be encouraged. How potential flooding and flood risk will change under climate change is another topic to be discussed and communicated broadly.

For more information on the Flood CC initiative read our article in the GEWEX Quarterly Vol. 31, No. 4, Quarter 4, 2021 pg 11-12. If you would like to participate in the Flood CC please complete and submit the form below.

Thank you,
On behalf of the members of the Flood CC Initiative
