L'American Water Resources Association (https://www.awra.org/) e l'American Institute of Hydrology (https://www.aihydrology.org/) presentano una serie di Workshop sul Forecast-Informed Reservoir Operation. I Soci della Società Idrologica Italiana sono stati invitati a partecipare dall'AIH nell'ambito del programma di collaborazione AIH-SII che si sta delineando. Il Programma dei Workshops prevede:


PART 1: Forecast-Informed Reservoir Operations (FIRO): Overview and Introduction to FIRO Webinar Series

OCTOBER 14, 2020 | 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET

Attendees of this webinar will be able to:

- Identify the key strategies used in the development of FIRO viability assessments.
- Describe how the formation of a research and operations partnership creates a framework for collaborative vision and work plan development and fosters effective problem solving.
- Recognize the range of conditions and goals being addressed by the current and planned FIRO viability assessments.


Notes: In case the time zone does not work for you, the webinar will be recorded and can be viewed anytime.



F. Martin (Marty) Ralph


Director, Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes
UC San Diego/Scripps Institution of Oceanography

Dr. F. Martin Ralph is a weather and water scientist focused on understanding the origins of floods and droughts, and on improving predictions for water management and flood control applications. After 21 years at NOAA, he created the "Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes" at UC San Diego. He's published over 150 peer-reviewed scientific articles and has developed programs on new science and technology and their application to solving practical problems. He is a leading expert on atmospheric rivers and provides input to policy makers on western weather and water extremes. He is a leader in development of Forecast-Informed Reservoir Operations (FIRO), working closely with federal, state and local water managers. He is a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society and has received awards from several organizations. He has a B. S. in Meteorology from University of Arizona, and a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences from UCLA.
