Mountain Hydrometeorology

Mountain weather can be highly variable in space and time and is often extreme, with implications for recreation, agriculture, industry, infrastructure and ecosystems. A national meeting of the Royal Meteorological Society is being held on Saturday 28 June and Sunday 29 June 2014 with speakers at this session covering challenges and progress in hydrometeorological research, forecasting and the use of forecasts in mountain environments.  Of relevance to the flood forecasting service there will be presentations on hydrometeorological monitoring and forecasting in the upland environment and a visit to the forecasting centre operations in Perth.

This national meeting of the Royal Met. Society is being held jointly with the Scottish Local Centre at the A K Bell library in Perth
