Scenario-based Flood Risk Mapping

PI: Himanshu Grover, University of Washington 

Co-PI: Bob Freitag, University of Washington

New techniques in predicting flood levels will incorporate information about variability in possible flood levels, variability that captures changes in climate conditions and uncertainty in the climate model variables used to make the predictions. This project explores how to present new kinds of predictive information to community life-line infrastructure stakeholders, and how to get data from those stakeholders that allows them to integrate predictions of potential flood levels with the corresponding impacts on infrastructure.
