Update: Our review paper, ‘Using R in hydrology: a review of recent developments and future directions‘, has been accepted, and excitingly is the most downloaded paper in HESS in the last 12 months! (https://www.hydrol-earth-syst-sci.net/most_downloaded_recent.html)
The PDF can be downloaded here: https://www.hydrol-earth-syst-sci.net/23/2939/2019/
Our paper: Berghuijs, W., Harrigan, S., Molnar, P., Slater, L., Kirchner, J., The relative importance of different flood-generating mechanisms across Europe, has just been accepted in Water Resources Research (doi: 10.1029/2019WR024841)

I’m excited to present two papers at the AGU Fall meeting in Washington D.C. in December this year –
- One hydrology paper: Slater, L.J., Anderson B., Blum, A., Archfield S., Attribution of changes in hydrologic extremes to changing land cover, AGU USA → session H51L: The Role of Data in Understanding and Attributing Changes in Hydrologic Extremes (Friday 14 December, 08:00 – 10:00; H51L-1446)
- One geomorphology paper: Slater, L.J., Khouakhi, A., Climate modes of variability and fluvial response over interannual to multidecadal timescales → session EP52B: Signatures of Climate Change in Surface Processes I (Friday 14 December, 11:20am, 147A; EP52B-05)
And our exciting session on ‘Flooding and Geomorphology‘:
- Advances in Incorporating Geomorphology and Flooding: Feedbacks and Impacts on Flood Risk Posters (Monday 10 December, 08:00 – 12:20, Poster Hall A-C; EP11E).
Our paper –
Neri, A., Villarini, G., Salvi, K.A., Slater, L.J., and Napolitano, F. On the decadal predictability of the frequency of flood events across the U.S. Midwest
– has been accepted for publication in the International Journal of Climatology.
Very nice mention of our short course in this month’s edition of Circulation (the British Hydrological Society’s magazine):
We’re delighted to announce that the ‘Using R in Hydrology’ workshop will be running again (for a second year) at EGU 2018!
The session is organised in cooperation with the Young Hydrologic Society (YHS) and materials will be made available on the YHS GitHub page (rhydro_EGU18).
Convener: Louise Slater
Co-Conveners: Shaun Harrigan, Claudia Vitolo, Tobias Gauster, Alexander Hurley, Guillaume Thirel.
- Introduction to the short course – Louise Slater
- Accessing hydrological data using web APIs (a demo of the rnrfa package) – Claudia Vitolo
- Extracting netCDF climate data for hydrological analyses (reading and visualising gridded data) – Louise Slater
- Processing, modelling and visualising hydrological data in R (tidyverse; piping, mapping and nesting) – Alexander Hurley
- Hydrological modelling and teaching modelling (airGR and airGRteaching) – Guillaume Thirel
- Typical hydrological tasks in R (List columns, Leaflet and coordinate transformation, Open Street Maps) – Tobias Gauster
The session is aimed at researchers who are interested in hearing more about R as well as those who are advanced R programmers wanting to discuss recent developments in an open environment.
Our two-day workshop in Loughborough on Seasonal Forecasting of Water Resources – Meeting User Needs (24-25 January) was attended by 43 participants from a diverse range of organisations (CEH, ECMWF, EA, SEPA, NRW, NCAS, National Farmers’ Union, Canal & River Trust, SMHI, Civil Protection Agency), water agencies/ consultancies (Anglian Water Services, Scottish Water, CH2M, South West Water Ltd), and universities (Maynooth, Reading, Coventry, Loughborough, Colima, Newcastle, West of England, WSL), with delegates from six countries (UK, Ireland, Mexico, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden). The event was co-sponsored by the RCUK Drought Programme, Water@Loughborough, Water@Reading, and the British Hydrological Society.
We are planning to write a summary of the meeting for the British Hydrological Society’s newsletter Circulation, a Letter to NERC, and an opinion paper.
