An overview of the flood related inventory components is provided. An emphasis is placed on techniques for defining a flood hazard, adjusting parameters for identifying economic and social impacts from floods and interpreting and applying model outputs. Best practices for using the flood model to support emergency management are identified. Course instruction includes lectures, demonstrations and multiple hands-on individual and group activities.
