High-Definition (HD) Modeling
Flood hazard can vary significantly across small distances and over time. HD modeling simulates losses from the ground-level up so you can better manage uncertainty and model complex financial terms, such as hours clauses.
Understanding Storm Surge
As the industry’s most sophisticated catastrophic storm surge model, our hydrodynamic approach models surge build-up throughout the lifecycle of the storm alongside other critical characteristics.
Substantiated, Comprehensive Data
RMS uses the most current and accurate data to provide explicit views of flood risk accounting for all pertinent hazard characteristics, including topography, land use, flood defenses, and risk vulnerability.
The foundation of all RMS inland flood models ensures all potential fluvial and pluvial sources are evaluated, antecedent conditions are captured, and natural clustering and spatial correlation is explicitly represented.
Flood defenses are a major determinant of flooding in an extreme event. Our advanced approach to modeling flood defenses in probabilistic and hazard data products in Europe account for both permanent as well as temporary defense systems.
Critical features for modeling flood impact on exposed risks are captured by hundreds of vulnerability curves available for every region we model, including both primary parameters and secondary modifiers, such as the presence of basements.
