Eike Hamers Research Leader

This student project focuses on large scale flood models and their ability to interact with land use models, to assess future risk. This includes the evaluation of existing flood models on their suitability as large scale model, adapting such a model, and creating the computational framework to integrate the model into a land use model. The research will help future decision makers understand flood risk not only at community scale but as part of a greater picture and assess the effectiveness of different hazard risk reduction portfolios.
