Hydrologic Modeling and Forecasting

Flood, Drought, and Hydropower

Agriculture Canal

Lynker Intel offers outstanding credentials in surface and ground water hydrology, providing broad knowledge and experience for projects involving evaluation and modeling of surface and ground water systems. Lynker Intel incorporates a variety of technical tools and scientific methodologies, including the development and utilization of a multitude of modeling software programs, data collection and analyses, and field investigations, as well as measurements and evaluations associated with water allocation, river system losses, gains, deliveries, and efficiencies.

Flood Warning Sign

Lynker Intel helps public and private organizations in ensuring quality, health, safety and sustainable development through a wide range of hydrology-related products and services including model simulations and data delivery, warning services operational hydrological services, web-based tailored tools for visualization and support of decision-making, and international cooperation. Our personnel are globally recognized experts in deterministic and probabilistic flood forecasting, hydrometeorological analysis, simulation and modeling, and operational forecasting, and work closely with stakeholders to implement forward-thinking scientific research-to-operations solutions for water resource conservation and emergency response.

Lynker uses historical and contextual data and projections of climate change to predict the likelihood of events, with the goal of planning for an uncertain future, from the next few hours to the next many years. Lynker’s actionable intelligence makes it easier to make decisions today to prepare for future events: 

  • Forecasting facilitates planning. What are the options? 
  • Planning facilitates analysis. What are the potential costs, risks, and benefits of each option? 
  • Analysis facilitates decision-­making. Given what we know today, what is the most reasonable course of action? 
  • Lynker’s machine learning algorithms can predict market prices – from futures to day-ahead, and intraday for higher revenues per produced Mw. Lynker can increase your hydropower revenues by up to 15%. Higher revenue. Less spill. No hassle!
  • For water supply planning, Lynker develops estimates of spring snowmelt and runoff, and products for forecasting water-supply needs under extreme conditions, such as drought.

Climate Change and Population Growth

With decades of deep experience in natural hazards analyses and risk assessment, Lynker Intel partners with private and public organizations to operationalize climate change impact analytics, projections of population growth and subsequent increases in vulnerable assets, as well as other changes influencing hazard and risk exposure, in order to make better business and adaptation decisions for the future impacts of hazards. Decisions that must be made now.

Geohydrology and Groundwater Resource Sustainability

Hidden from view, groundwater provides a critical water supply resource to billions of people across the globe, while simultaneously providing a foundation to healthy ecosystems. Lynker Intel geohydrology professionals have the knowledge and experience to help clients manage their groundwater resource challenges.

Mine Water Management

Considering progressively more stringent regulations, high profile tailings dam disasters, declining ore grades and mine closure activities, sound water management strategies and models are paramount for successful and safe mining. Lynker Intel excels at assessing all phases and functions of mine water resources including the development of water-balance and groundwater flow-and-transport models to support the efficient management of water at a viable price. We understand that the availability, quality, and cost of water are key to investment decisions, and cost-effective water management is critical to profitability.

Site Assessment, Remediation, and Closure

Land, soil and groundwater impacted by accidental spills and releases of chemicals and wastes can present unacceptable risks to human health and the environment. Mitigation of exposure to impacts begins with a sound understanding of the sciences that define their 5 fate and transport. Lynker Intel approaches site assessments, feasibility studies, and remediation of impacted soil and groundwater considering the science and using the wide variety of means and methods in our toolbox.
