Upcoming Live Webinars

Special Live Webinar on May 25, 2022 at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern

The growing frequency and intensity of flood events around the world have driven the need for more accurate forecasting and real-time hydrologic simulation. A predictive flood modeling system can provide information necessary about flood timing and intensity for critical decision-making during an event, both forecast and in real time. Join us for this free one-hour learning session, presented by Dr. Kelsey McDonough, Hydrologic Engineer with AEM, to learn how you can actively manage and mitigate flood risk using a predictive flood modeling system.
