Aim & Scope

The 6th International Workshop on Catchment Hydrological Modeling and Data Assimilation (CAHMDA-VI) will be held jointly with the 3rd International Workshop on Data Assimilation for Operational Hydrology and Water Management of the Hydrologic Ensemble Prediction Experiment (HEPEX-DAFOH III) in Austin, Texas, USA, September 8-12, 2014. As a continuation of the past successful workshops of CAHMDA and HEPEX-DAFOH, the Austin workshop focuses on assessing recent advances in modeling, observations, and data assimilation approaches with a goal to understand, observe and predict hydrological processes and to build synergism with operational hydrology. Particular attention will be given to extreme events, such as droughts and floods, as well as the development and application of data assimilation approaches to improving operational hydrological forecasting and water resources management.

For the CAHMDA related sessions (1 – 5), main forms will be invited key notes, short poster presentations and extensive discussions. For the DAFOH related sessions (6, 7, and 8), both oral and poster presentations will be accepted. In addition to the workshop, a two-day pre-workshop data assimilation training course and one-day post-workshop excursions will be organized.
