Water is a give-and-take fact of life in Northeast Brazil, where natural disasters caused by deadly floods and droughts have become an annual ritual.
Carlos Henrique Ribeiro Lima, PhD ’09 Earth and Environmental Engineering, is working to address this and other water challenges by developing mathematical and statistical models to improve water resource management in the country.
- testing a multi-reservoir water allocation model that considers not only physical aspects but also economic and social factors
- developing a multi-site forecast model for the rainy season
- analyzing floods across Brazil considering the climate influence and developing a flood prediction model
