In April 2019, Michal went to present his research in form of a poster to European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly in Wienna. The title of the poster was “Mapping areas exposed to erosion and water forces during extreme floods in steep terrain”. The contribution was focused on 2D numerical simulation of flash flood event in Utvik in 2017. Some connections for possible future cooperation have been made with researchers from Spain, France and Luxembourg. Also Google Flood Forecasting Initiative has been found relevant for WoWW project.
We were greeted with lunch and coffee by the Kysthotell staff, and we went straight to the meeting room to get the project introduction started. After a thorough presentation by the team lead regarding the aims and objects of WoWW , everyone gave a brief presentation about themselves followed by a detailed discussion on everyone’s role in the project and how we will proceed in the future to achieve our goals. before the dinner we had a small session where one of the team member introduced others with Virtual Reality by showing them a small demo.
A long evening meeting was followed by a savory dinner.
The dinner was again followed by a long discussion and social activities among the PhD fellows. In the morning there was a detailed discussion on how we will proceed with the project, important milestones etc. and we headed back to Trondheim .
