Underestimations of US flood risk

Tuesday 28 February, 10:00-11:00 (CT), 11:00-12:00 (EST), 8:00-9:00 (PT)

Understanding the impact of flooding is essential for any floodplain practitioner, engineer, state infrastructure or asset owner involved in making decisions about risk. Yet, widely used approaches for the modeling of floods are often limited, time consuming and expensive.

As new technology and scientific research become available, sophisticated computational modeling methods are being developed at large scale. How can water specialists leverage these advanced numerical models to gain a rapid and objective assessment of flood risk across the US?

In this webinar, experts will examine the latest advances in US flood mapping.

Key discussion points include:

  • Developing models at a large scale
  • Model validation and our work with FEMA data
  • Available solutions towards mapping US flood risk
  • Case studies
