Iowa Flood Center Director Witold Krajewski presents “River Networks and Floods” at 5:00 pm at Cafe Scienfitique at T-Spoons (on the corner of Linn and Market Streets in downtown Iowa City).
Dr. Krajewski will talk about the hydrologic genesis of floods – “small” and “big” ones. He will discuss the role of rainfall, soil moisture, land cover, and in particular, the role of the stream and river drainage network. He will illustrate the talk with results of his studies of the Iowa 2008 floods.
