Image showing flood inundation of the Iowa River on the University of Iowa Arts Campus.

This image represents flood inundation of the Iowa River on the University of Iowa Arts Campus. Data was collected by the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping's LiDAR survey of the Iowa River during the flood and will be used to develop detailed flood inundation maps. Different colors on this image from the University of Iowa Arts campus represent ground and water surface elevation, with flood waters represented in blue.

Graph of flood elevation on the Cedar River, with inset photos of the Cedar River

This image is a graph of flood elevation on the Cedar River in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, with two inset photos of the Cedar River. For their project, Anatomy of the 2008 Flood, Witold Krajewski and Ricardo Mantilla demonstrated one of the key factors in the Cedar River's unprecedented crest with this graph, which simulates river discharge just upstream from Cedar Rapids, with and without the major rainstorm, on June 12th.
