EGU Workshop Validation in Flood Risk Modelling (Day 2)

Boussinesqweg 1, Delft, The Netherlands
Date 10 December 2014
Time 08:00 - 17:00
Registry fee € 50
Event organizer (reg. email)


On the second day we will have a deeper look on validation techniques for flood damages (Session 3 - Damage models) and the impact of uncertainties on the overall flood risk (Session 4 - Integration). Again there will be two comprehensive blocks for in-depth group discussions. We will close the workshop by a plenary discussion on the way forward including the main conclusions from all group discussions.

Schedule - 10 December 2014
