Third National Flood Workshop
February or March , 2015

 

PURPOSE:
The Second National Flood Workshop is organized by Weather Research Center (a private, non-profit educational and research center based in Houston, Texas) and its partners. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together various agencies, emergency managers, academia, and professionals from across the nation to encourage dialogue on the various aspects of flooding. This includes the meteorological and hydrological conditions observed before, during, and after flood events, technological advancements being made in remote field data acquisition and flood modeling, and regulations and requirements in flood mitigation and floodplain management. Coastal and offshore operations are also impacted by flood events especially storm surge and high tides from tropical storm and hurricane events which can cause flooding and damage. This year's conference will add a track where coastal and offshore facilities affected by tropical storm and hurricane events can come together and discuss flooding impacts on their operations.

The goal is to establish an annual national workshop to discuss flooding and related topics, provide educational and training courses, and most importantly to help reduce loss of life and property damage from floods.
