What is the Symposium?

The California Extreme Precipitation Symposium is an informal day of scientific and technical presentations meant to increase our knowledge and understanding of extreme precipitation events. Goals of the Symposium are to improve flood risk management planning and increase warning time for large floods.

Each year, the Symposium presentations focus on a specific theme.

Speaker Presentations

Speaker presentations from each Symposium are available on this website. Presentations may be posted in one or more formats: abstracts, printable slides from the presenters, and/or audio of the sessions.
