ICSH-STAHY Workshop 2018 (organized by ICSH-IAHS)

Adelaide, South Australia | September 24-26, 2018

Apart from stimulating discussions on the multiple facets of statistical hydrology, the STAHY2018 workshop also commemorated the lifetime of contributions by Professor George Kuczera to the discipline. Professor Kuczera prented a thoughtful assessment of the importance of type I and II errors in hydrological practice, and how we may be making larger longer-term mistakes at the cost of reducing short-term errors by focussing more on one error type than another.
