About the Project
UConn CIRCA researchers are developing an integrative hydrologic and flood inundation modeling system for Connecticut’s inland river network, and using the system for conducting flood vulnerability analyses statewide to identify critical areas/infrastructures (e.g. bridges, road network, power stations, waste water treatment facilities) and issues related to flooding and erosion from extreme precipitation (1% annual chance storms) in current and end‐of‐century climate.
