September 16, 2020 Joint session with Netherlands in international confluence IAHR-APD
In the 22nd Congress of International Association for Hydro Environment Engineering and Research of the Asia Pacific Division (IAHR-APD) held on September 15-16, 2020, we conducted a session in cooperation with the Netherlands to discuss the joint research project for climate change adaptation. The chairperson of the session is our representative, Professor Tomohito Yamada. This session includes seven presentations from the project members that led to constructive discussions.
The objective of the joint research is to focus on how we should address the sequential process from precipitation analysis to risk analysis of flood inundation with a stochastic approach using ensemble data. The results of the discussion in this session will be a stepping stone to improve the methods of risk analysis on flood management based on climate change.
