Research Topic: Hybrid Ensemble Bayesian Forecasting System (HEBFS)

My research topic is flood forecasting, the objective is to develop a hybrid ensemble Bayesian forecasting system (HEBFS) to further improve flood forecast accuracy and reliability. The proposed HEBFS aims to generate an ensemble of probabilistic flood forecasts through multi-model combination based on the existing Bayesian forecasting system (BFS). It shall be able to quantify all major sources of uncertainties, provide probabilistic forecasts in the form of predictive distribution which expresses not only the predictand but also the degree of confidence.
