Journal Article
Gourley, J. J., Flamig, Z. L., Vergara, H., Kirstetter, P., Clark, R. A., Argyle, E., …Howard, K. W. (2017). The FLASH project: improving the tools for flash flood monitoring and prediction across the United States. Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, 98(2), doi:10.1175/BAMS-D-15-00247.1

This study introduces the Flooded Locations and Simulated Hydrographs (FLASH) project. FLASH is the first system to generate a suite of hydrometeorological products at flash flood scale in real-time across the conterminous United States, including ra... Read More

Effects of display design on signal detection in flash flood forecasting (2016)
Journal Article
Argyle, E. M., Gourley, J. J., Ling, C., Shehab, R. L., & Kang, Z. (2017). Effects of display design on signal detection in flash flood forecasting. International Journal of Human-Computer Studies, 99, doi:10.1016/j.ijhcs.2016.11.004. ISSN 1071-5819

The Flooded Locations and Simulated Hydrographs (FLASH) project is a suite of tools that use weather radar-based rainfall estimates to force hydrologic models to predict flash floods in real-time. However, early evaluation of FLASH tools in a series... Read More
