    Dear EoTEC-DevNet Europe group,

    (moderators, please let me know if this is not the correct place to post this invitation and I will remove my post)

    The CEMS Hydrological Forecast Centre – Computation (COMP) invites you to attend our upcoming webinar on ‘EFASv 5.0’.

    The webinar is scheduled on 17 November 2023 at 14:00-15:00 UK time (15:00-16:00 CET).

    Please follow this link and enter your details to register for the Teams Webinar: Registration Link

    The webinar aims to cover topics relating to the latest major EFAS release, launched at the end of September 2023, including:

    • Change in the spatial resolution of the system, from 5km (up to EFASV4) to ~1.4km (1arcmin/0.0167 degrees) and extension to the modelling domain
    • Reporting points highlighted for catchments from 150km2 (instead of 500km2 until EFASv4) anywhere on the domain
    • Major improvements in the hydrological modelling, including new processes and new calibration, with regionalised parameters in ungauged catchments
    • Enhanced flood inundation forecasts with hazard maps now at 90m resolution (instead of 100 m)
    • Enhanced hydrological post-processing products, with information on local threshold exceedance

    If you have any specific questions that you would like to be covered during the webinar, please send them to info@efas.eu

    The meeting will be recorded for training purposes and some material made available afterward. We also take this opportunity to remind users that all previous webinars are available on the EFAS website: https://www.efas.eu/en/webinars

    On behalf of CEMS COMP,

    Kind regards,

    Calum Baugh

    Dear Calum,

    Thank you for sharing this information with the EOTEC DevNet Europe group. The upcoming webinar on ‘EFASv 5.0’ hosted by the CEMS Hydrological Forecast Centre sounds like an excellent opportunity for our community to learn about the latest advancements in hydrological forecasting. I will ensure to copy this announcement in our main feed to reach a wider audience.

    Best regards,
