Sarah Pralle, associate professor of political science, was interviewed on Marketplace for the segment "Why flood maps may not include areas that actually flood." Pralle says there are many problems with how they're drawn. "So one problem is the maps are based on historical data, they're static maps," she says. "They don't take into account future development scenarios and future weather-related scenarios having to do with climate change." 10/17/17
