Phys .org: Algorithm finds that thousands of artificial levees are missing from US database

Phys .org: Algorithm finds that thousands of artificial levees are missing from US database. “To better understand how artificial levees affect modern rivers in the United States, it is important to have a reliable, updated database of levee locations. However, the existing National Levee Database developed in 2006 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers fails to capture many of the nation’s smaller structures. In a new study, Knox et al used machine learning to detect the artificial levees that are missing from the database.”
