What is the Symposium?
The California Extreme Precipitation Symposium, in its 22nd year, 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. Following is the draft agenda for this year's Symposium.
