Thesis Topic/Title
Large-Scale Modelling of Surface Water Flows Associated With Extreme Weather Events

Description

This project concerns the development of a new accurate and efficient numerical tool to simulate surface water flows, especially extreme flows like flooding, using advanced numerical approaches. Remote sensing techniques including either satellite images or 3-D high-resolution Airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) will be used for creating the digital elevation (DEM) of terrains. It is expected that this numerical tool can be used to simulate flooding flows resulting from heavy rains and huge dam releases and predict the impact of flooding on human activities such as agricultural production.
