SC1.12

R is an open-source, versatile programming language that is suitable for multi-scale analyses from just a few observations to big data and high-performance computing. It has a growing, enthusiastic user-base (including hydrologists) that is responsible for a continuous stream of ever more efficient and useful packages and workflows.

Running for its fourth consecutive year, this EGU short course, co-organised by the Young Hydrologic Society (younghs.com), will introduce and showcase a selection of both core and recently developed R packages that can be applied to data analyses in hydrology, as well as other scientific disciplines.

The course will be delivered by experienced hydrologists with wide experience in subjects including: hydrological modelling (including flood and drought analysis), forecasting, statistics, and eco-hydrology. Topics and presenters for this years’ course include:
• Data retrieval - Louise Slater (Oxford University, UK)
• Extremes modelling - Ilaria Prosdocimi (University of Venice, Italy)
• Hydrological modelling - Guillaume Thirel (IRSTEA, France)
• Hydrological forecasting - Katie Smith (UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology)
• Machine learning - Abdou Khouakhi (Cranfield University, UK)
• Open discussion and QA

This course contributes new topics to those delivered in previous years, building upon the openly accessible Github repository for hydrologists using R in their work (https://github.com/hydrosoc).
