Modelling the Flood Peril

Flood events are difficult to predict and models used by academia and industry often provide poor indicators, especially on a small spatial scale. Looking at historical data and multiple flood factors such as water type, topography and weather patterns, this research collaboration between AXA and UPMC seeks to develop a finer modelling methodology, which will be used to generate risk statistics and geographical risk ratings based on captured exposure data.
