Flash Flood Hydrology and QPE Virtual Course 2013 - COMET
This 3-day workshop is designed primarily for forecasters and Service Hydrologists at the WFOs. It will look into the hydrologic processes of flash floods and the current state of the art with respect to Quantitative Precipitation Estimation (QPE). The participant will gain a more thorough understanding of the hydrologic impacts of different soil types, land use, and basin characteristics. Exercises will use pre-generated AWIPS data. Discussion of the warning process and terminology will address the recent findings published in NWS Service Assessment reports.
