Prediction of hydro-meteorological variables, streamflows, and environmental extreme events (e.g., floods, rain storms) is vital for planning/design and/or risk analysis of civil infrastructure in river basins (e.g., dams, bridges, levees, flood walls, roads, airports).
This becomes a challenge for sparsely gauged and ungauged locations, and in areas undergoing climate and/or landuse/landcover changes. For use in these contexts, new approaches to regionalization, regional frequency analysis and downscaling/forecasting are being developed.
Further, for use in urban areas, approaches are being developed to assess performance of existing storm water drain networks and to prioritize them for re-designing/retrofitting when there are economic constraints.
