Michigan Tech Among Universities Working to Develop Flood Warning App

October 6, 2018

Marquette, MIOctober 6, 2018 – When flood waters rise, more data helps better predict and monitor changing conditions. And soon there will be an app for that.

Michigan Tech is one of five universities working together on a $1.5 million Smart and Connected Communities grant. The focus of the project–driven by a team of engineers, hydrologists and computer scientists–is to develop an integrated network that gathers, analyzes and alerts urban communities in danger of flooding. In a word, an app.

Learn more about how the team will not only develop device-based apps but also embed them in larger networks and outreach initiatives to improve flood monitoring and predictions.
