“Hydrological Constellations”: a science & art piece

“Hydrological Constellations”: a science & art piece

Contributed by Louise Arnal (artist & scientist; postdoctoral fellow at the University of Saskatchewan) From 29 June to 1 July 2021, the joint workshop “Connecting global to local hydrological modelling and forecasting: scientific advances and challenges”, co-organized by ECMWF – CEMS – C3S – HEPEX – GFP, was held virtually. As a scientist and artist, I wanted to participate and reflect on the topics explored during the workshop with both my scientist and artist hats on. With the support of…

Getting the early career HEPEX initiative off the ground

Getting the early career HEPEX initiative off the ground

On 7 May 2021, 32 early career scientists and young professionals from 17 different countries met online for the kick-off meeting of a new early-career initiative: EC-HEPEX! EC-HEPEX is part of the wider HEPEX community and aims to bring together people in the early stages of their careers related to hydrological prediction, working as a space for communication, collaboration and the sharing of ideas. Learn more about the initial vision in our first blog post. To be part of the…

Playing ‘frisbee’ with seasonal predictions

Playing ‘frisbee’ with seasonal predictions

  Embed from Getty Images   This blog is written by Timo Kelder (@timokelder), a 3rd year PhD student in climate science at Loughborough University. Here, he writes about the history of frisbees, and the parallels with his recently published paper on using seasonal predictions for detecting recent trends in rare extremes. Ultimate frisbee is now a well-established sport, with over 70,000 British participants in 2019. The photo shows how this began in the 1970s by skimming disks. But how…

Celebrating the new hydrological year with a new HEPEX blog year: Let’s co-generate the HEPEX blog global pattern

Celebrating the new hydrological year with a new HEPEX blog year: Let’s co-generate the HEPEX blog global pattern

Happy New Hydrological Year!! According to USGS and based on meteorological and geographical factors, the hydrological year is defined as the period between October 1st of one year and September 30th of the next year. Driven by this, HEPEX will set for this year a new interactive approach for scheduling the blogs with and for the community. The blog has been our channel to communicate scientific achievements, insights and developments. As a blogger, you do not need to be outstanding…
