Flood Profile Options Pane

 

The Flood Profile Options pane enables you to analyze your exposure data for the values listed in the following table. The FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) options apply to the hazard maps used with the FEMA Flood model; the AIR options apply to the hazard maps used with the AIR Inland Flood Model for the United States. For information about the AIR Inland Flood Model, refer to the Using the AIR US Flood Model in Touchstone 2.0 guide.

This pane includes pane-specific parameters, parameters specific to the Hazard Analysis Template, and parameters common to all objects. Use them to establish a flood profile. To include this hazard in the Hazard Analysis Template when it is applied, select the Flood check box when configuring the Hazard Analysis Template..
