EGU Workshop Validation in Flood Risk Modelling (Day 1)

Boussinesqweg 1, Delft, The Netherlands
Date 09 December 2014
Time 08:00 - 17:00
Registry fee € 50
Event organizer (reg. email) eguworkshop@deltares.nl


On the first day of this workshop we will focus on the need of validation and available techniques with regard to the flood hazard (Session 1 - Hydrology and Hydraulics) and failure (Session 2 - Failure models). Beside the presentations there will be two comprehensive blocks for in-depth group discussions. 

Schedule - 09 December 2014
