An introduction to global scale flood modeling

Partnered with

In this CIWEM CPD-accredited webinar, Fathom’s flood specialists explore the methods, considerations and science behind global scale flood models.

For engineers and other risk professionals with an interest in understanding current and future flood risk at large scales

Key topics cover:

  • What is global scale modeling 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?

This webinar is part of a three-part training series, accredited by CIWEM.

Part 2 – How can we model the impact of climate change on flood risk globally? 

For engineers and water professionals, it is difficult to know where to start to understand climate’s impact on future risk. In this webinar, we will explore the latest research in this area, the challenges in representing climate change within large scale models and introduce Fathom’s Climate Change framework – our latest methodology for translating climate model outputs into relevant metrics for flood modelling.

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.
