New Study Unlocks the Drivers of Seasonal Forecast Predictability of Hydrological Extremes 

The latest research paper led by SMHI is now available in the journal Environmental Research Letters. The study is a part of the I-CISK initiative and aims to tackle one of the most pressing issues of our time, accurate forecasting of streamflow extremes, hence better predicting floods and droughts.

By identifying significant geographical areas where seasonal forecasts can provide timely information on both very high and low streamflow conditions, and also exploring how hydrological regimes affect the predictability of streamflow extremes across Europe, this study equips us with information to refine hydro-climate services at the local scale.
