For engineers and water professionals who want to better understand how large scale models factor in future flood risk. In this webinar, we explore Fathom’s Climate Change framework – our latest methodology for translating climate model outputs into relevant metrics for flood modelling.

Take part in our free introductory course developed in partnership with CIWEM to train you in the methods, considerations and science behind global scale flood models. Approximately an hour in length, you will receive presentations from Fathom’s specialist research and development teams covering the following:

  • How can we expect a changing climate to impact flood risk?
  • Understanding climate models and their use in understanding future flood risk
  • Moving from global climate change to local scale risk
  • What is Fathom’s Climate Change Framework?
  • Applications of the framework in industry

This certification is the second part of Fathom’s 3-part accredited CPD webinar series, hosted with CIWEM. 

Expert speakers from the Fathom team:

  • Dr Nans Addor – Senior Hydrologist
  • Dr Natalie Lord – Senior Climate Change Expert
  • Gavin Lewis – Head of Engineering
  • Tom Collings – Developer

Global scale flood model

Part 1 – An introduction to global scale flood modeling

Kicking off the series, we present an introduction to global scale flood modeling. In this webinar we cover:
– What is global scale modelling and why is it needed?
– What are the considerations when building a global flood model and what are the challenges?
– What is the science behind these models and what can they teach us?
– How are these models being used in the real world?

Part 3 – Exploring the impact of compound events

Catastrophic events often are not driven by one process. Extreme coastal floods can coincide with strong winds, or damage from extreme rainfall can be amplified when following a wildfire. However, typical catastrophe models rarely look at the probability and impact of multi-peril compound events.

This webinar will explore what compound events are, their drivers and how perils connected to generate extreme events.
