ThemeExploring Floods in California's Central Valley from a Climate Perspective

Each day has a focus:

  • Day One: Possible impacts on flood dynamics from future climate changes
  • Day Two: Adaptations to future climate impacts on flood events

What is CEPSYM?

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 CEPSYM are to improve flood risk management planning and increase warning time for large floods.

Each year, CEPSYM presentations focus on a specific theme. Almost every paper or presentation given since starting in 1994 is available under Speaker Presentations.

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.
