About the CONFERENCE
The Third International Conference on Quantitative Precipitation Estimation (QPE) and Quantitative Precipitation Forecasting (QPF) and Hydrology will be held at WMO's Nanjing Regional Training Centre, Nanjing, China.
The overarching objective of this conference is to improve QPF capabilities and advance the use of these fields in hydrological predictions with an emphasis on high-impact events. The conference will cover a wide range of issues relating to QPF including new observational approaches and technique development for Quantitative Precipitation Estimation (QPE), advances in data assimilation, modelling and verification for QPF, user needs and the challenges of operational QPF.
The conference will bring together researchers and forecasters to review the progress made in the science since the 2nd conference in Boulder and will conclude by identifying key areas of research needed to fill gaps in current knowledge and in existing measurement, data assimilation, modelling and forecast dissemination strategies for QPF and QPE.
