Recent advances in cloud computing and wireless communications have enabled new means by which to process and respond to data in real time. Robust enterprise-scale platforms built for the Internet of Things (IoT) integrate these advances to connect internet-enabled sensors and actuators with powerful web-based tools to not only capture and store measurements, but also immediately process and visualize data. While powerful and scalable, these platforms have yet to be widely adopted by the hydrologic community, where the value of real-time data impacts both scientists and decision makers.

5:00 PM to 5:30 PM

Each year floods affect nearly 250 million people, exceed $90 billion in economic losses, and pose public health risks to developed and developing cities. In order to better assess risks, models of flooding that rely on modern information about urban environments are needed.

"Mark Barteau, director of the University of Michigan Energy Institute, said the EPA Clean Power Plan could significantly boost renewable energy in Michigan. But he said the state should aim for even loftier goals.

Earlier this year, the Energy Institute issued a report that outlined opportunities for significantly increasing electricity production from wind and solar sources, Barteau said.
