Symposium Deciphering River Flood Change, Springer Schlößl in Vienna

In September 2012 a Kick-Off Symposium for the ERC project was held at the Springer Schlößl in Vienna with the aim to connect international researchers interested in the topic of flood change.

The following topics were addressed in a number of presentations and discussions:

  • Recent evidence on flood changes
  • Historic floods
  • Atmospheric and land use controls on flood changes
  • Flood change modelling 
  • Harmonising flood related data in Europe

During the Symposium the Flood Research Consortium (FRC) was initiated.
