URISA Texas Hosts Webinar On Near-Real-Time Flood Impact Mapping
The latest updates in helping safety officials anticipate flood impacts will be the focus of URISA Texas’ May talk.
Dr. David K. Arctur, a research scientist at the Center for Water and Environment, will lead a webinar called “Developing Near-Real-Time Flood Impact Mapping In Texas” from noon to 1 p.m. May 23.
NOAA's National Water Center started publishing hourly streamflow forecasts in August. The Texas Division of Emergency Management has started to adapt the forecasts for public safety officials to gauge flood impacts across Texas.
Arctur’s presentation will focus on the work-in-progress, challenges and next steps.
Arctur is also a Research Fellow in the Center for Integrated Earth System Science at the University of Texas at Austin and was previously Director of Interoperability Programs for the Open Geospatial Consortium.
Brian King, of Freese and Nichols Austin and URISA Texas Vice President, will moderate.
Those wishing to receive a PDH certificate must register.
