Cristina Prieto Sierra guest editor for a special issue of the journal “Natural Hazard and Earth Systems Sciences (NHESS)
These techniques provide a platform that serves as a reference tool for the scientific community, allowing the exploration of the causes of floods and the construction of efficient methods for their mitigation.
This special issue invites the community to submit comprehensive and applied research papers on flood modeling, including hydrological modeling, hydrodynamic flood modeling, flood mapping, risk assessment, flood management policy, and flood mitigation strategy.
In addition, studies that address the multiple sources of uncertainties associated with the different modeling stages and explore modern techniques for model calibration and validation are welcome.
Cristina Prieto Sierra is a researcher at the Institute of Environmental Hydraulics of the University of Cantabria since 2008. She has an international Ph.D. in Hydrology (IHCantabria; Imperial College London; University of Bristol; NCAR, CO), a postdoctorate in hydrology in Switzerland and Australia, is a Civil Engineer and MSc in integrated management of water resources and coastal areas at the University of Cantabria.
She has participated in international and national R&D and consultancy projects (about 40) in the areas of hydrology and river hydraulics. Among others, the researcher is a co-organizer in 3 sessions of the European Geosciences Union (EGU), of the International Workshop “Information Theory as a Bridge Across the Geosciences and Modeling Sciences” and the hydrological prediction courses given at IHCantabria. As well as a reviewer of Q1/D1 journals (e.g., Water Resources Research, WRR; Journal of Hydrology, JoH; or Hydrololy and Earth Systems Sciences, HESS).
