The National Flood Interoperability Experiment (NFIE) is a project sponsored by the National Weather Service, the University of Alabama, and the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. (CUASHI) to help build a new high resolution, near real-time hydrologic simulation and forecasting model for the United States. The University of Alabama and the recently opened National Water Center (located on the Tuscaloosa campus of the University of Alabama) will be hosting a seven-week Summer Institute associated with the NFIE in June and July 2015.
A series of free webinars describing the NFIE program structure and the information and modeling sources available, as well as potential lines of research that could be pursued through the NFIE training program, are being held in the winter and spring of 2015. The next webinar will be held Wednesday, February 18th at 3:00 pm ET, and will feature Course Coordinators Fernando Salas and Joseph Gutenson, along with additional student presenters, describing NFIE projects that they are currently working on to give a sense of what students can do during the NFIE Summer Institute. For information on how to connect to the webinar, visit the NFIE Student Presentations page.
Information on the NFIE, as well as on past and future webinars, is available on the National Flood Interoperability Experiment page.
