Flood Hazard Map for Baxter River, CA.

This project was carried out to model a river flood scenario using the Baxter River area located in California, USA, as a study area. This analysis helped us to determine the flood hazard rating for areas adjacent to the river to identify facilities and properties which may be at risk of a flood hazard.

Using HEC-RAS, a powerful and robust software, I was able to model a flood scenario in the surrounding area. flood rating results for the area showed areas with low risk and areas which were the most vulnerable if the river overflowed its bank.
