Industry-academia join together to advance flood engineering practice

UNSW academics Associate Professor Lucy Marshall and Dr Fiona Johnson recently ran a technical session at AECOM who are an industry partner of CVEN, on statistics, probability and uncertainty fundamentals to support Australian Rainfall and Runoff 2016 (

The technical session was attended by AECOM water engineers as well as representatives from Sydney Water, WaterNSW and Bureau of Meteorology, with others from around Australia listening in via video conference. Attendees discussed the principles of uncertainty that are embodied in ARR2016 as well as some of the technical and practical issues around implementing these highly sophisticated techniques. The session was a great model for sharing knowledge held within universities with the expertise of practicing engineers
