Spatial Resolution
The spatial resolution is based on the defined river reach.
Temporal Resolution
Model often uses steady state conditions, or time is handled probabilistically through the Monte Carlo simulation or the probability of exceedance analysis which are compiled into annual plans.
Outputs
Outputs include damages, flood extents, and risk characteristics.
