Search for your address in this new database and get an easy to understand indicator of the potential for flooding now and over the next several decades as climate change alters our environment.
Scientists traveled to Kerala, a state in India recently devastated by severe monsoon rains. They found a vulnerable population that will soon face fresh landslide risks as a new monsoon approaches.
A different modeling approach fills large gaps in the U.S. government’s flood risk estimates, revealing previously overlooked at-risk areas often surrounding small flood-prone streams.
A more precise definition could help cities and governments prepare and respond to hazards.
A new book presents the latest tools in remote sensing technologies and modeling approaches for addressing challenges and meeting future needs in global flood hazard mapping and prediction.
Cities typically build wastewater treatment facilities in low-lying areas. A new national study identifies which plants are most vulnerable to coastal flooding.
How remote sensing of streams provides valuable data for the characterization, prediction, and warning of impending flash floods.
Experimental studies of frictional weakening beneath a deadly rock avalanche in China help to clarify the mechanisms that cause these devastating natural disasters.
The model, released by the National Weather Service, will provide neighborhood-level flood forecasting.
