With the weather headed our way this weekend, become a citizen-scientist by downloading the iFlood app from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.
Your flood reports will provide important data about the location and timing of flooding that will improve flooding models. Available on both iTunes and Google Play under iFlood.
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.
