Call for Papers

The WRaH 2011 Symposium in Exeter will provide a forum for the exchange of experiences and ideas on the use of weather radar in hydrology.

The theme of the 2011 Symposium will place emphasis on user applications of weather radar for flood forecasting and water management. All sessions will aim to combine developments in weather radar with advances in its hydrological application.

You are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts of papers for the Symposium with this focus in mind. We aim to promote a strong interchange between researchers, practitioners in the water industry and those making advances in weather radar technology.

You may wish to read the Science Questions to help with formulating your abstract title.

Abstract submission

Abstracts of papers must be submitted by 4 October 2010 at the latest. Please complete the abstract submission form at Abstract submission link
