Become a citizen-scientist for Woods Hole Oceanographic

By on November 1, 2019

iFlood is a citizen-science flood reporting app for the North Carolina Outer Banks. Become a citizen-scientist by downloading the iFlood app from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.

iFlood is a partnership between researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the town of Nags Head, and the town of Duck to improve flooding predictions along the North Carolina Outer Banks. Citizen-scientist flood reports submitted by you, the app user, provide our research team with data about the location and timing of flooding events that help us evaluate and improve models for flooding owing to ocean storms and rainfall. If successful our model will be applied to help manage flooding hazards for the Outer Banks.

The development of iFlood and this flood-related research is funded by the U.S Coastal Research Program. Images used in the app graphics were provided by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Field Research Facility.

Available on both iTunes and Google Play under iFlood.

    Most of the flooding on the Outer Banks is caused by wind driven water in the Sounds. The Ocean and rain are far less influential. Ocracoke flooding during Dorian is a prime example.
