As an academic center focused on flood-related research and education, Iowa Flood Center faculty, staff, and students produce many scholarly peer-reviewed journal publications, conference proceedings, and books each year. The following is a sample of this important work, which makes IFC innovations and research available to others in our field and moves the science forward toward improved service for Iowans and others.
