Due to climate change flooding is predicted to increase in frequency and intensity across the globe and it is imperative we can produce accurate and timely flood forecasts for decision-makers before and during floods.

Zhiqi Hu, an MSc in Atmospheric Ocean & Climate student at University of Reading, worked with us and JBA Consulting during her masters project investigating if a probabilistic ensemble weighting method can improve  Flood Foresight ensemble flood map forecasts using satellite observations during the flood event in India, Brahmaputra river basin in August 2017. Her work is summarised in this poster.
