Flood modelling, mapping and risk assessment services

Would flood risk management enable the identification of possible flood prone areas and assist in land use planning, rescue and communication?

Flood risk mapping is a prerequisite for effective flood risk management. Hydraulic models also offer tools to simulate a flood as well as the transport of harmful substances in water systems.


Finnish Environment Institute SYKE has extensive experience in flood modelling and mapping. We are capable of producing solutions to challenging, exceptional and extreme floods, taking into account uncertainties related to modelling. We can customise comprehensive training on flood modelling and mapping or, if desired, focus on a single work phase only.

We offer the following services

  • Service for hydraulic modelling (1D and 2D flow modelling, dam break and transport modelling with HEC-RAS)
  • Geographic information analysis and exploitation service (ArcGIS, QGIS)
  • Flood damage risk assessment service
  • Assessment service for impacts and consequences of ice cover and ice jams in rivers
  • Assessment service for watershed regulation
  • Service for flood risk management planning
