Today I have finished my model setup for the next four models – Whoa! I am feel released for all forms of stress right now. Tonight I will celebrate by doing nothing and enjoy a cup of tea together with my parents at their place.
When the model simulations are finished, in three or four days, I will spends some time to gather the results. I am looking forward to see what they can tell me. In the meanwhile I will try out another model setup I have been thinking of, start to teach my new student group in hydrology and hydraulics (introductory course) and hopefully give a seminar to my colleagues at the department.

Flood hazard maps available for public in Denmark

From today the flood hazard map of Denmark is available for public. It has been developed by Miljøministeriet (Danish Ministry of the Environment) in cooperation with Forsikring & Pension (The Danish Insurance Association) and can be downloaded or viewed online at kortforsyningen.dk. The digital elevation model for Denmark has been available for a while and now the Danish Ministry of the Environment has chosen to give Danish municipalities this valuable planning tool.

Bangkok under vatten

Jag vill dela dessa bilder från ett översvämmat Bangkok med er. Det är absurbt att en stad kan vara vacker när den svämmats över på detta vis, i varje fall på bild. Delar av staden har översvämmats med så mycket som 1,5 meter vatten och det förväntas att det går en månad innan vattnet har sjunkit undan igen.
