When: Friday, May 18th, from 6:30-8:30 pm

Presenter: Dr. William R. Dupre’, Dept. of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, University of Houston

Flooding in the Houston area over the last three years has caused residents and professionals alike to reconsider how we evaluate and respond to flood hazards in the region. Dr. Dupre’ will discuss how watersheds and floodplains are defined and mapped, and how individuals can obtain (and understand) information on local watersheds and floodplain maps.  He will also discuss recent floods, including how floods are measured and how flood frequency is calculated. Of particular importance is how and why floods and floodplains in Houston have changed in the past, and are likely to change in the future. Lastly, he will review some of the possible approaches to reducing flood risk in the future.

If you wish to reserve a seat, please send your request to wdupre@uh.edu, and put reservation in the subject line.
