Title: Improving Pipelines for Assessing Flood Hazard Under Climate Change
Author(s): Stephan Sain*
Companies: Jupiter Intelligence
Keywords: Climate change; Flood; Extremes; Machine learning; Emulators

The US faces $100s of billions in losses from hurricanes, severe weather, flooding, drought, fire, etc. each year. These natural catastrophes are placing an increasing burden on the public and are projected to worsen in the future. The focus of the science, data science, and software development teams at Jupiter Intelligence is to provide high-resolution, probabilistic assessments about how these hazards are evolving with climate change to aid our customers with operational and long-term asset planning. Focusing on the different aspects of flood, this talk will outline the cloud-based computational pipelines used to produce flood hazards under a changing climate, including sea level rise and changing precipitation. Further, use of machine learning and statistical methods in these pipelines will be discussed and opportunities for future research and development highlighted.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
