Hydrometeorology Applications Program (HAP)
Research in hydrometeorological applications; operational daily
to seasonal flood forecasting for Bangladesh..
Conducting research in probabilistic river discharge forecasting,
seasonal forecasts of water resources, statistical corrections to
numerical weather prediction output, multi-model approaches, and
verification measures for ensemble forecasting.
