A report from the Floods Working Group's first interdisciplinary workshop on past flood variability was published in Eos last Friday.
"Using Archives of Past Floods to Estimate Future Flood Hazards" discusses using historical documents and natural archives (including alluvial, marine and lake sediments, tree rings and cave formations) provided by hydrological instruments back through the Holocene period or beyond.

The workshop was held in Grenoble, France, in June 2016. Access the post-meeting material here.
