Fathom-CIWEM CPD Webinar – Part 2 of 3

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

For engineers and water professionals who want to better understand how large scale models factor in future flood risk. In this webinar, we will 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.

When: Wednesday 1st February 2023, 4-5pm GMT.

At the end of this three-part training series, you will be asked to complete a short questionnaire to test your understanding on the subject. Upon successful completion you will be sent a CPD accredited certificate for personal, academic or professional records.

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

Global scale flood model

Session 1 – An introduction to global scale flood modelling – On-demand

Kicking off the series, we present an introduction to global scale flood modelling. 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?

Watch on-demand

Session 3 – Exploring the impact of compound flood risk and extreme 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.

When: 21st June, 2023.
