Earth Science Seminar
Seminar on "The Historic Missouri River Flood of 2011" by Jeff Zogg, senior service hydrologist, National Weather Service, Des Moines, Iowa.
The flood fight and recovery have involved many people from different backgrounds in the public and private sector. During the flood from the Missouri River basin, the National Weather Service worked closely with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Geological Survey, FEMA and the State of Iowa to provide decision support services. After the flood, the National Weather Service continues to work with these and other agencies to help recover from the flood and plan for the future.
