The ARR revision team is running a full day workshop on Monday 19th November in Sydney.  The workshop will run from 10am – 4.15pm at UTS, Sydney. An updated schedule is included.

The workshop will now include the launching of the long awaited Two dimensional modelling Best practice and how to guide. The guide has been authored by industry leaders in 2D modelling. The report covers all aspects of 2D modelling including model set up, data and calibration to direct rainfall. The report will be a handy resource for both new and experienced 2D modellers.

The Bureau of Meteorology is nearing completion of the revision of its Intensity-Frequency-Duration (IFD) design rainfall estimates.  The revised IFDs will be available to users via a new webpage which has been design to better meet the requirements of engineers and hydrologists.  At the workshop an update on the revised IFDs will be provided together with a demonstration of the new IFD webpage.  (Detailed presentations on the derivation of the revised IFDs will be made during the conference.) The planned enhancements to the webpage over the next twelve months will also be presented.
