This module introduces students to floodplain analysis through a hands-on application to the Pecatonica River near Darlington, WI. Students will learn how to collect and analyze watershed data, apply statistical concepts to perform flood frequency analysis, and perform a floodplain analysis using HEC-RAS while considering input/output uncertainty and a cost analysis of design alternatives.
