×G5. Modelling to advance resilience towards water related hazards

Climate change has been shown to increase the frequency and intensity of water related hazardous events such as flooding, cyclones, drought and fire weather as well as compound events that can exacerbateacerbate events impacts. Risk assessment for these events requires information on multiple time scales including historical information, seasonal forecast and projected long-term changes as well as extreme events in the water cycle. Additionally, risk assessment involves understanding exposure and vulnerability to such changes.

Earth system models and hydrological models coupled with impact or hazard models are aimed at producing reliable and probabilistic hydro-climate information for a broad range of public and economic sectors. This modelling is crucial to identify and understand potential future risks and to inform societal decision-making processes, leading to effective, evidence-based adaptation planning for extreme events.

This session invites contributions that demonstrate:
