Research Brief: Precipitation Flooding in Urban Environments

MIT Researchers are studying how to model floods in urban environments
March 1, 2021

Though cities have become increasingly vulnerable to floods, flooding maps remain time- and resource-intensive to generate. CSHub Ph.D. candidate Elli Vartziotis is developing a statistical physics-based model that simulates flooding with greater simplicity. The results of her work can be found in this research brief.
