CREST Streamflow Monitoring & Flood Simulator

The CREST (Coupled Routing and Excess Storage) Hydrologic Modeling Tool provides water managers in the SERVIR hub regions with information about recent precipitation amounts and the resulting flood likelihood for watersheds. This information enables better decision-making related to water resources, floods, and agriculture. Currently, SERVIR is running the tool in several renditions, including historical model runs, near real-time, short-term forecast, and long-term forecast to quantify the impacts of climate scenarios on regional water resources.
