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.
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.
Flooding can be an essential part of the economy – so much agriculture depends on the nutrients that flood brings. However, most of us know flooding for the damage, disruption, and of course loss of life, that it brings.
By giving warning of impending flood, people can take action to reduce damage, reduce disruption, be informed to get out of the way, take refuge and thus save lives. To learn more read this blog...
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.
