Hydrological Ensemble Predictions: a continuous review
Ensemble flood forecasting: a review
In 2009, Hannah Cloke and Florian Pappenberger published a review of "Ensemble Flood Forecasting" in the Journal of Hydrology. This webpage attempts to provide an up-to-date reference list since the publication of this review. Please, do not hesitate to contact me, if you feel that your publication or achievement is missing.
THORPEX/HEPEX HYDROLOGICAL ENSEMBLE PREDICTION SYSTEM (THEPS)
THEPS is a project which integrates NWP EPS predictions and hydrological forecasting. For more detail see Project webpage.
