The project will use GPS stations to monitor seasonal land motion due to water loading, GRACE gravity field measurements to estimate water storage, and data from river gages and groundwater wells collected by the Bangladesh Water Development Board to determine water loads and the elastic properties of Earth.
OUTCOMES: The team has tracked land deformation, gravitational field changes, and water flows. These measurements have resulted in two publications to date.
Building Analytical Capacity for Rapid Financial Response to Floods
Climate Informed regional water resources and flood risk mitigation planning
Climate Predictability of Extreme Floods in the United States
