Description

University of Iowa Hydroscience and Engineering Professor Witold Krajewski says the 2008 flood reminded him that ?a flood is much more than dots on paper,? as so many experts are accustomed to encountering them. Though his offices in the hydroscience laboratory were evacuated during the flood, Krakewski notes that his team secured federal funds and equipment to perform aerial tests on the depth of the flood waters ? a unique scientific opportunity that stemmed from this chaotic event. He also describes the UI?s ongoing relationship with NASA, which uses satellite technology to study the Eastern Iowa floodplain.
