Flood Inundation and Water Resources Forecast and Warning


The last year has proven the importance of accurate and timely flood information across the entire continental US as well as Hawaii and Alaska. Forecasting for ungauged basins using various models and parameterization schemes, model initialization, forecast updating and estimation/expression of uncertainty for unusual or extreme storms continue to be challenges for mitigation of flood impacts. The goal here is to improve methods that the weather industry and community uses for flood forecasts and warnings and then establish ways to improve the delivery of both deterministic and probabilistic forecast products for a variety of customers.
