1st Workshop on "Novel hydrological concepts for the engineering practice", Bologna, September 29, 2021

The Workshop "Novel hydrological concepts for the engineering practice" has taken place in Bologna on September 29, 2021. It has been organised to celebrate the degree Honoris Causa in Environmental Engineering that has been awarded by the University of Bologna to Günter Blöschl. The emergency due to COVID19 imposed a severe restriction to the number of attendants and therefore the audience was not large.

The Bluecat Home Page

Bluecat is a new method that Demetris Koutsoyiannis and myself recently proposed to estimate uncertainty of hydrological predictions. Bluecat comes with an open source and user friendly software to support its application. The original idea was elaborated by Demetris during his stay in Bologna in 2019. Formalisation of the method and software preparation were as all of my working hours from February 2020 to May 2021 were absorbed by the management of the COVID19 emergency in the academia.

My presentation at the conference EGU2020 Online: Blue Cat, A brisk local uncertainty estimator for hydrologic simulations and predictions

My presentation at the General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union titled: A brisk local uncertainty estimator for hydrologic simulations and predictions (Blue Cat) is available for download at the link below.

I would like to thank Demetris for conceiving an amazing idea. It is a simple and computationally efficient tool to estimate the probability distribution of hydrological predictions (and therefore assess their uncertainty) which works really well.
