Developing a GIS-based Geospatial Decision Support Tool for Assessing Climate Change Impacts on Flood Risks in Northern Cascadia Road Networks

Dates

Start Date
2013
End Date
2016

Summary

This project will develop a flexible geographic information system (GIS)-based database (GIS-Hydroads) that can be integrated with a regional hydrologic model developed at the University of Washington (UW) to aid in decision making related to road infrastructure (initially culverts) associated with flooding risks under climate change. GIS-Hydroads will be designed in a modular fashion in collaboration with the National Park Service (and the US Forest Service), and be expandable with future technical capabilities and transferable throughout the western US. Proof-of-concept applications of GIS-Hydroads will be presented in a representative basin along the west slope of the North Cascade mountains of Washington, where preliminary analysis [...]
