Earlier this week (March 6, 2024), CITRA Lab members were hosted at the NWS Southeast River Forecast Center in Peachtree City, GA. The students learned how to produce flood forecasts for more than 300 watersheds and communicate the risk to the citizens while presenting their research project to the staff. Thanks, John Schmidt, for hosting and spending the day with us. This effort will increase our current and future collaboration with them, such as optimizing operational compound flood models.
