Title: Bias Correction and Modeling Improvements to the GEOGloWS Hydrologic Model
Abstract: We have just completed bias correcting all the discharge outputs of of the GEOGloWS hydrologic model- in gauged and ungauged sub basins. We are preparing to update the model, including building a new delineated stream network. We will cover the GEOGloWS calibration/validation activities, methods for bias correction, datasets used in and produced by, and an overview on lessons learned in large scale modeling.
Presenters: Yasha Moz and Erin Martin, NASA's Earth Science Applied Sciences Capacity Building Program, Washington DC., USA
Title: Flood Tools Tracker: Helping Users Find the Right Flood Tools and Associated Capacity Building Resources
Abstract: A broad range of Earth Observation tools and models exist to help with global flood forecasting, monitoring and impact assessment, each with unique inputs and capabilities. To facilitate their discoverability and use, EOTEC DevNet has developed a tracker to help users find the right flood tools and associated capacity building resources best suited for their needs. The tracker’s searchable database currently contains dozens of tools, capacity building resources and use cases that will be further expanded and refined in collaboration with experts.
Presenters: Antara Dasgupta and Patrick Matgen, Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology, Luxembourg
Title: DestinE: Digital Twins for Global Flood Risk Reduction
Abstract: A new project on Digital Twins with ESA aims to demonstrate the potential of such a system for Luxembourg, to deal with flood disasters through early warning and improved preparedness, with the goal of producing globally relevant products. For this, we propose to combine the Global Flood Mapping and Global Flood Awareness systems through data assimilation to enable 30-day ahead forecasting of inundation maps. In this context, we would like to propose a discussion format webinar, where we would present the project plan and the planned products to solicit feedback from the user community. This feedback will inform our global product design, to ensure its utility to the stakeholder communities.
