HARC presented three exciting papers at the 2021 Floodplain Management Australia (FMA) Conference.

Andrew Northfield will be sharing insights from our work developing and applying Rapid Flood Risk Assessments while Edward Funnell and David Stephens will be presenting on the application benchmarking of ARR2019.

Rapid Flood Risk Assessments: The High-Value, Low-Cost Solution
Time: 26/05/2021, 12:30 – 1:00 PM (Session 2B)
Presenter: Andrew Northfield
Summary: This paper discusses undertaking rapid flood risk assessments to develop flood risk information for areas without a detailed flood study, arming flood risk managers and emergency services with vital information at a low cost.

No Single Point of Interest! Application of ARR2019 Principles in Catchment-wide Analysis
Time: 27/05/2021, 2:00 – 2:30 PM (Session 8C)
Presenter: Edward Funnell
Summary: This paper explores the challenges of producing a single flood surface for a catchment by utilising hydrological inputs at multiple points of interest.

Benchmarking ARR2019 for Victoria
Time: 27/05/2021, 2:30 – 3:00 PM (Session 8C)
Presenter: David Stephens
Summary: This paper presents findings of benchmarking design flood hydrology inputs from ARR2019 to a range of catchments in Victoria, including interim recommendations for how to adjust these inputs in some regions of the state.
