Flood Research

The Louisiana Watershed Flood Center focuses on research and development in different areas prone to flooding with a focus on integrated watershed solutions.

Our research ranges from assessing flood impacts to designing monitoring system for flood alerts.

Louisiana Watershed Flood Center

The Louisiana Watershed Flood Center is leading the effort to establish a Lafayette-based center for flood research and education. The Flood Center will provide research and development capabilities in different areas related to floods with a focus on integrated watershed solutions.

Among the Flood Center’s research projects:

  • Design of watershed monitoring systems for real-time flood alert and warning applications
  • Flood forecasting and hazard identification
  • Probabilistic analysis and prediction of extreme events
  • Radar-rainfall applications in hydrologic and hydraulic modeling
