Australian Rainfall and Runoff (ARR) seminar

When:  Mar 15, 2021 from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM (ACST)
Associated with  South Australia
Many Council activities require an assessment of the flood risk. The publication of a revised Edition of Australian Rainfall and Runoff (ARR) has resulted in many changes in recommended approaches to the estimation of design flood magnitudes.

This seminar provides an overview of ARR and the changes in the recommended approaches to estimation of design flood magnitudes.

James Ball - Associate Professor UTS

James Ball is an Associate Professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Technology Sydney, in Sydney Australia. His primary research interest is in the development and application of catchment modelling systems for flood estimation in both urban and rural catchments. This includes the determination of parameters for these systems and the use of information technology in the determination of these parameters. Through these research activities he has published a number of book chapters, journal papers and referred conference papers. In 2011 he was awarded the JC Stevens Award by the ASCE for his publication in the Journal of Hydraulic Engineering related to urban drainage system modelling. Prior to joining the University of Technology Sydney, Professor Ball obtained experience through research undertaken at universities in Australia, Canada and USA. Professor Ball also obtained experience in Consulting Engineering and in Government Authorities.
