Aging Dams

Posted 1 year ago

3 Sentences

The potential for the failure of aging dams requires understanding how changing climate affects the chance of high precipitation events that could lead to the failure by overtopping the dams. In addition, it requires a knowledge of statistics and machine learning to quantify the risk of dam failure and to predict which areas of critical infrastructure or populations downstream of the dam. Finally, an understanding of the social and economic impacts of dam failure, and of the governance and response planning of the dams is needed through social sciences for proper communication, understanding of the chain of events that could lead to actual impacts, and for risk mitigation.
