DebrisFlow Predictor

Modeling the complex behavior of debris flows and debris avalanches

Landslide runout and the associated impacts represent a substantial challenge for professionals trying to understand and manage hazards from steep mountainous terrain. DebrisFlow Predictor is the latest advancement in our suite of Geohazards solutions to make the world a safer place. The software uses data and controls to inform a numerical model that simulates complex behavior of debris flows. The generated predictions include landslide pathways, runout extension, and depth along the path due to scour and deposition. Simulation results can be overlaid onto mapped landslides for performance comparisons and used to predict the behavior of first-time landslides. The outcomes generated by DebrisFlow Predictor can help make decisions that preserve communities, infrastructure, and the environment.
