Four abstracts were submitted successfully
The CapTain Rain project will participate in the 7th International Symposium on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems (ISFF) taking place in Tlemcen, Algeria from 5. to 7. of June. The event is hosted by the Pan African University, Institute for Water and Energy Sciences (PAUWES) and the EOLE Laboratory (Eau et Ouvrages dans Leur Environnement), University of Tlemcen. The 7th edition of the symposium will focus on flash floods and sediment management in wadi systems in the context of climate change. Four contributions were submitted from different work packages of the CapTain Rain consortium. Dr. Peter Hoffmann from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) will held an oral presentation on the causal linkage between extreme rainfall in Jordan and large-scale circulation patterns. Another talk from work package 3 focusses on the multi-model approach for flash flood modelling in data- and water-scarce regions like Jordan and will be presented by Christina Maus from the Koblenz University of Applied Sciences. Poster presentations comprise the following contributions from work packages 3 and 6, respectively: “How have land cover changes and urbanization contributed to the flash flood risk in the city of Amman? An analysis of past and future trends” by Ahmad Awad from the Institute of Social-Ecological Research (ISOE) and “Comparison of global and regional satellite rainfall products for flood event detection in Jordan” by Marianne Brum from the KISTERS company. We are very much looking forward to the symposium in Algeria and looking forward for fruitful discussions with experts, especially from countries in the MENA-region.
