ITHACA @ the 4th International Workshop of the Global Flood Working Group

From 4 to 6 March 2014, ITHACA will take part to the 4th International Workshop of the Global Flood Working Group, hosted by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, Reading, UK.

ITHACA is part of the Working Group since the 2011 and it is contributing with an open-source monitoring and forecasting system for heavy rainfall with global scale: Extreme Rainfall Detection System (ERDS). The aim of this year’s meeting is to build a Global Flood Partnership and to structure the many ongoing works and initiatives in a coordinated manner to develop prototype products and services useful for national hydro-meteorological services and international emergency response agencies.
