Mapping flood before it happens
How to predict when the floodwaters will rise is the topic of a public lecture at the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park on Thursday, Feb. 23.
Hydrologist Marijke van Heeswijk will talk about the agency's new FloodPath mapping system, designed to forecast floods three days in advance.
The lecture starts at 7 p.m. in the Building 3 conference room at 345 Middlefield Road in Menlo Park.
