Intro We’re delighted to be attending and presenting a wide range of research at this years European Geoscience Union General Assembly, in Vienna.

We’re delighted to be attending and presenting a wide range of research at EGU 2019, in Vienna. We’re also delighted to have been invited to present at the Google Outreach stand, which we’re sure will provide a platform to reach an even wider audience. EGU is always an enjoyable and enlightening event as the best scientists in our field come together to share their work.

Our presented work includes new estimates of global flood risk using Facebook data, new methods for detecting levees, the methodology behind our up-and-coming Fathom-US model and new methods for modelling the size of river channels.

Come and find us here:

New estimates of flood exposure in developing regions using high-resolution population data (Tues 9th at 8:30 am).

Extracting flood defence information for the entire continental US from high-resolution elevation data (Tues 9th at 10:45am).

A method for improved channel representation in continental scale flood models. An example from the conterminous United States (Tues 9th at 11:00am).

The spatial dependence of flood hazard and risk at continental scales (Thurs 11th at 8:30am).

Quantifying the cost-effectiveness of floodplain conservation to mitigate future flood damages in the United States (Google Outreach Weds 4pm & Fri 10:30am).
