- PublicationPropagation of uncertainty from observing systems and NWP into hydrological models : COST-731 Working Group 2The COST-731 action is focused on uncertainty propagation in hydro-meteorological forecasting chains. Goals and activities of the action Working Group 2 are presented. Five foci for discussion and research have been identified: a) Understand uncertainties, b) Exploring, designing and comparing methodologies for the use of uncertainty in hydrological models, c) Providing feedback on sensitivity to data and forecast providers, d) Transferring methodologies among the different communities involved. e) Setting up test-beds and perform proof-of-concepts. Current examples of different perspectives on uncertainty propagation are presented.

- PublicationVisualising flood forecasting uncertainty : some current European EPS platforms – COST731 Working Group 3COST funding allows European scientists establish international links, communicate their work to colleagues and promote international research cooperation. COST731 was established to study the propagation of uncertainty from hydro-meteorological observations through meteorolgical and hydrological models to the final flood forecast. One focus is on how information about uncertainty is presented to the end-user and how it is used. COST731 has assembled a number of demonstrations/case studies that illustrate the variety of practical approaches and these are presented here. While there is yet no consensus on how such information is presented, many end-users do find it useful.
