Robert Adler (ESSIC / CICS) was featured in a recent NASA web publication on Satellite-Based Flood Monitoring. Adler’s team is responsible for the development of the UMD flood monitoring and prediction tool, the Global Flood Monitoring System (GFMS). The GFMS provides key data for Relief Agencies by indicating how an excess rainfall event will impact river flows. The system also indicates whether there is a potential for flooding downstream away from heavy rain events.
