Canceled: Navigating Three C's of Flood Hazard Management: Compounding Effects, Co-Benefits, and Communication
Floods are among the most frequent, costly, and deadly natural hazards. Current management of urban flood hazards is hindered by overly simplistic models and inadequate understanding of the three interacting mechanisms by which future flood hazards may be amplified: atmospheric processes (e.g., increasing heavy rainfall), catchment processes (e.g., increasing imperviousness), and floodplain processes (e.g., loss of flood conveyance and storage capacity).
In this presentation, Dr. Brian Bledsoe, Distinguished Professor in the College of Engineering at the University of Georgia, will describe key opportunities for improving prediction and communication of these compounding effects with emphasis on novel flood mapping techniques aimed at making risk more intelligible.
This event will take place on Thursday, March 26th from 1:00 to 2:30 pm in the Toyota Auditorium and is free and open to the public.
