Fathom-CIWEM CPD Webinar – Part 3 of 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.
In this CIWEM-accredited webinar, Fathom will explore:
  • What are compound events?
  • To what extent are events like flooding, drought and wind connected?
  • What drives compound events?
  • How model vendors can work together to provide combined views of risk?

When: Wednesday 21st June 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 third 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

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?

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

For engineers and water professionals, it is difficult o 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.

When: 1st February, 2023.
