Northern Arizona University: What data teaches about flood forecasting: NAU researcher co-leading crowdsourced app to gauge flood water . “A new project funded by a $1.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation is designed to address this problem. Along with collaborators at Arizona State University, the University of Arizona, University at Buffalo and Michigan Technological University, Ruddell will partner with local, federal and academic stakeholders to pilot a new flood information system for cities that connects first responders, citizens and infrastructure professionals with exactly the flood information they need, in near-real time, for the locations where they need this data most.”
