Financial flows

Image
A financial graph for the first time, it might look like a hydraulic jump, but it shows according to CPI the estimated climate finance , worldwide inflow, to keep the Earth system below the threshold of 1.5 ºC increase. What a challenge from now !!! and it´s not all about money. Link to original report .          

Busy times in May

Image
Consultancy continued, plus a few hours of teaching at Fluid Mechanics Department UNIZAR ,   ending with a brief  talk for Peruvian graduates about the articulation of flood monitoring techniques, at the 2nd  IAPG-conference on Geotechnics, link to  slides (ESP). By the way, the drone HQ-image illustrates  how bank erosion leads to tree falling, at Alcalá de Ebro , May 2022.    

Multi-layer assessment

Image
Bulks of environmental Open-Data are available nowadays, as well as many software and hardware frameworks to work with. Our 15 years experience in multi-layered data allows to search for  optimal solutions and tools to scale your exploitation needs, particularly for input quality checking involved in large scale flood  modelling and drone imagery processing.

Reporting meander bed change

Image
During one seminar I was asked how bed level changes after a major flood. Quick answer with drone imagery: the top picture is from October-2021 and the bottom one from March-2022, with a major flood in between: December-2021 . Shapes and volumes can be tracked down accurately processing the digital terrain models. Google-Sat background at Alcalá de Ebro.   October 2021 March 2022  

Open science, helping to track mud floods

Image
At IAPG-Perú , interesting 3x2 hours sessions connecting Perú, Australia and Spain, to discuss real scenarios and how  drone footage and numerical models can prevent flash mud-floods on specially steep basins, like the ones of Chosica, Lima, Perú . Links:  Promotion

Support for Neural Networks (NN)

Image
This year we start to promote and support NN  modules, particularly based in LSTM, following the Neural-Hydrology stream, and using PyTorch open resources. We expect to cover Rainfall-Runoff data-driven models and Time-Series prediction related to any kind of Environmental Modelling. Ask for prospects in this field and support to configure  neural cells for training, validation and testing. The picture reminds the connection between NN setups and linear water storage tanks. 

Seminar MIRH-2022

13th January, 2022, for MIRH-Unizar . This year special attention to discuss SAR and Visible satellite imagery, including local drone footage. The link to Support Videos .
