AbstractEvent-­‐driven data delivery (ED3) is being used to automate the access and processing of data for decision support as the result of disaster events. Through a NASA Applied Science award, the Informa0on Technology and Systems Center and Atmospheric Science Department, both at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH), are collabora0ng to refine the u0lity of the ED3 func0onality for response to disasters. The team is working closely with decision support systems, such as the SERVIR project and state agencies in Alabama, to help define the capabili0es that will best suit the end users for a variety of disaster events. This poster depicts using the output of a UAH flood modeling system to define a flood poten0al as an event that would trigger data access and addi0onal processing to make more rapid decisions about possible flood condi0ons, which could help mi0gate the effects of the eventual flood itself. This project will demonstrate the reusability of this technology for other disaster events and in support of mul0ple decision support systems and end users.
