Researchers with the Coastal and Inland Flooding Observation and Warning (CI-FLOW) project are preparing for Hurricane Irene to test their total water level prediction system in North Carolina later this week.
The Coastal and Inland FLooding Observation and Warning project has launched a Facebook page and a Twitter site in an effort to make CI-FLOW research more visible.
The collaborative Coastal and Inland-Flooding Observation and Warning Project (CI-FLOW) released a new video demonstrating how their prototype total water level simulation system can help improve NWS flood forecasting and save lives of people residing and working in coastal watersheds.
The goal for the 2010 hurricane season is to demonstrate, in real time, that CI-FLOW can produce realistic simulations of total water level for an actual storm event.
NSSL researchers are partnering with the National Weather Service (NWS) Warning Decision Training Branch (WDTB) and National Sea Grant at the University of Oklahoma to facilitate a training session called “Communicating/Interpreting Crucial Weather Info During a Hurricane Impact” at the 2010 National Hurricane Conference in Orlando, Fla. on March 30, 2010.
