Larry Brazil, PhD, specializes in the development and evaluation of water management projects both domestically and internationally. In his technical role as a water resources engineer, he is involved in decision support system development, deterministic and stochastic hydrologic modeling, hydrometeorologic forecast system design, and data analysis.
Dr. Brazil spent 11 years at the Hydrologic Research Laboratory of the National Weather Service, where he developed and implemented components of real-time operational hydrometeorological monitoring and forecasting systems. His experience in water management has included technical assistance in forecasting water availability in more than 20 countries for operational purposes such as irrigation management, hydropower production, and water supply using a variety of software systems. Applications of his work also have included use of hydrometeorological forecast information for flood mapping, as well as emergency response and preparedness.
Dr. Brazil has published numerous papers in his areas of expertise.
