CH2M is thrilled to be presenting at the 2017 Floodplain Management Association’s (FMA) annual conference on September 5-8 in Long Beach, California (USA).

The 2017 event will focus on the theme ‘Creating Partnerships through Integration: Water, Environment, People’. 

On Wednesday, September 6 at 2:30pm, CH2M’s Paul Robinson, Water Resources Engineering Manager, will present a paper entitled ‘Flood Modeling In The Cloud: Can It Be A Revolutionary Cloudburst For Flood Analysis?’ where he will discuss how cloud computing is increasingly becoming a part of flood management projects. Paul will also reference examples of the innovative functionality provided within CH2M’s 1D and 2D software Flood Modeller Pro and Flood Cloud.

The presentation will also discuss the rise of ‘The Cloud and ‘software as a service’ for flood modeling, and associated enhancements to model building, running, and results processing. It will consider more advanced aspects such as cloud-based data management, ‘real time analysis’, model connectivity, and the mechanics of effectively sharing results via ‘The Cloud’ for flood risk management practitioners and public engagement. The presentation will also share some of the benefits and challenges of flood modelling on ‘The Cloud’, and Paul’s perspective on what may be next, including lessons learned from cloud applications in other industries.

The Floodplain Management Association is a key organisation for floodplain management professionals interested in reducing flood risk and creating sustainable floodplains in the US. The association serves as an unbiased forum for legislature, government, industry and science to advance best practices, technologies, policies, regulations and legal strategies, with a focus on California, Nevada and Hawaii.
