Research bites lunchtime talk: Real-time flood forecasts save lives (Dr Rebecca Emerton and Dr Andrea Ficchi, Department of Meteorology)

Predicting natural events such as storms and earthquakes is a challenge, but advance notice can help save lives. During Cyclones Idai and Kenneth in 2019, Drs Emerton and Ficchì’s real-time flood hazard reports helped national and international aid agencies working in Mozambique deliver aid to those most in need.

 

One of our series of lunchtime talks about how research at Reading is addressing twenty-first century challenges.

At 1pm each weekday between Monday 30 September and Wednesday 9 October you can find out more about the research projects displayed in the library foyer (exhibition runs 30 September – 12 October).

Each day, in an informal ten-minute presentation, one of the finalists from the University’s Research Engagement and Impact Awards will present their life-changing work and answer any questions you might have.

Each event will last no longer than 30 minutes.
