New Perspectives on River Models

“The work we do on remote sensing of river basins has applications around the globe, whether it’s to predict flooding or to help local communities use the resources of rivers more efficiently. As engineers, I think it’s important that we look at how to help society around the globe.”

In part 7 of our 2019 researcher case studies we look at Dr Fiachra O’Loughlin of the UCD School of Civil Engineering

Rivers are arteries for human civilisation, and can enable prosperity or, in the case of flooding or drought, they can bring the potential for devastation. Dr Fiachra O’Loughlin from UCD School of Civil Engineering is using freely available satellite data to better model and understand large river systems.
