Simulating Rare 1 in 100 Year Storm Events: Techniques for Generating Realistic Rainfall and Runoff

Extreme weather events, such as heavy rainfall, can cause significant damage to infrastructure and the environment. To predict the impact of such events, it is necessary to simulate them accurately. One of the most challenging tasks in this regard is to simulate a 1 in 100 year storm event. In this article, we will explore

Modeling Urban Runoff: Simulating Snow Melt Inundation in City Environments

Snowmelt flooding is a common problem in urban areas during the spring season. As the snow melts, it can cause flooding, resulting in damage to infrastructure, property, and even loss of life. To manage this risk, it is essential to simulate and predict the extent and severity of snowmelt inundation events in urban areas. In

Exploring the Relationship between Manning’s N and Drag Coefficient Cd values for NLCD Land Cover Classes in Runoff Modeling

Introduction Manning’s roughness coefficient (N) and coefficient of drag (Cd) are two important parameters used in hydrological models to estimate the surface roughness of different land cover types. In hydrology, accurate estimation of these parameters is essential for predicting the behavior of water flow and runoff. The National Land Cover Database (NLCD) is a valuable
