Flood modelling in the cloud

Jacobs' Dr. James Savage, Flood Modeller Training Manager, shares his thoughts on flood modelling in the cloud.

Flood inundation modelling is continually becoming more complex and data intensive. This has been particularly driven by advances in modelling software, improvements in computer processing power and increased data availability. Even more importantly, demand is increasing for more detailed and robust analysis, which also provides greater understanding of the certainty (or uncertainty) of flood risk.

This paper looks to explore in more detail what cloud computing is and how flood risk management as an industry can take advantage of these recent advances, using Flood Cloud as an industry leading example.

How to use flood modelling to underpin a robust business case

Jacobs' National Appraisal Lead, Tim Palmer, discusses how to use flood modelling to underpin a robust business case.

A business case evaluates the benefit, cost and risk of alternative options and provides a rationale for the preferred solution. Therefore, a strong business case is essential to obtain the investment to protect people, property and businesses against flooding. Flood modelling plays an important, if not essential, part in developing the case.

9 ways to reduce the cost of flood risk modelling

Jacobs' Global Practice Leader for flood risk modelling, Dr. Jon Wicks, shares his thoughts on 9 ways to reduce the cost of modelling.

Flood modelling underpins many aspects of successful flood risk management. As with all aspects of flood management, there is continual pressure to ensure that best value for money is achieved in the modelling process. The guidance in this paper is designed to help reduce the costs of modelling, whilst also ensuring that the outputs provide what the end users of the modelling actually need in order to make robust flood management decisions.
