The US Midwest is facing elevated flood risks in late spring 2019. We look at advances in modeling, particularly live modeling, that produce forecasts and customized alerts to improve flood readiness analyses.
Significant investments are spent on building and calibrating hydraulic models for planning. Real-time modeling systems can bridge this gap by leveraging sensor and model investments as a real-time decision support system for operations teams.
In this blog, we’re sharing some of the lessons learned and the key benefits gained in using live models to help ensure successful real-time modeling programs.
2D flood modeling offers many benefits when executed appropriately. Many disaster planning and control experts use 2D modeling for the predictive analysis of a potential flooding situation. However, you don't want to inadvertently make these mistakes.
