This session aims to provide a forum for discussion of new ideas on process representation, data assimilation and model parameterization at different spatial and temporal scales, with special emphasis on the prediction of hydrologic extremes.   Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 

- process conceptualization at different scales and sensitivity analyses;
- coupling of downscaled precipitation from climate models for improving forecasting of hydrologic extremes;
- uncertainty propagation in coupled atmospheric-hydrological modeling;
- probabilistic prediction of extreme floods in poorly monitored basins;
- assimilation of data from multiple sensors; 
- validation and inter-comparison of hydrological models in a range of magnitude-frequency events;
- advances in hydro-informatics (gridding, data distribution, and ensemble forecasting systems) for operational forecasting;
- use of hydrologic predictions in ecosystem modeling and assessment under extremes
