The Floods Working Group (FWG) of the Past Global Changes project (PAGES) aims to bring together all the scientific communities reconstructing past floods (historians, geologists, geographers, biologists, etc.) and those studying current and future floods (hydrologists, modellers, statisticians, etc.) to coordinate, synthesize and promote data and results on the natural variability of floods. The splinter meeting at the EGU 2024 is the 2024 annual meeting of the FWG and the kick-off meeting of the third phase 2024-2026 of the working group. During the meeting, the steering committee will propose and discuss the scientific activities planned for the next three years: pilot projects, special issues, topic sessions and workshops and a new call for the Open-access flood metadata base. The splinter meeting is open to FWG Group members, early-career researchers and anyone interested.
