RainGain International Workshop in Rotterdam

by Johan Verlinde / Gemeente Rotterdam

During the international workshop the benefits of a high resolution rainfall radar for urban water management will be explored. Both practitioners and scientists (see the list of participants) will discuss the tools needed for implementation of radar data in their work or organizations. Furthermore we’ll welcome some international speaker who’ve got experience with radar and/or extreme rainfall events. People interested in attending the workshop can register by sending an email to waterloket@rotterdam.nl
