Landuse change and wildfire: Satellite images from Santa Cruz and Chuiquitos from July 2014 and August 2019.

2D Hypothetical Chepete Dam break simulation HEC-RAS.the article provides more information about the HEC-RAS simulation

1D Dam break simulation of hypothetical Chepete dam break.

Hypothetical dam break fail of proposed El Bala hydropower dam 2D simulation of a hypothetical dam break of proposed El Bala hydropower dam backwater and its consequent flooding of Rurrenabaque.

Backwater from Jirau dam (Brazil-Bolivia) 1D simulation of Jirau hydropower dam backwater.

Landuse change in Tiquipaya (Image below): Satellite images from Tiquipaya (April 2008 and April 2017). Landuse change is evident. Not only urbanization (downstream), but also loss of vegetation (upstream).

2D simulation of the 2014 flood with HEC-RAS v5. The new HEC-RAS v5 with 2D capabilities successfully simulates the flood.

2D simulation of the 2014 flood with Mike21. Although the model still needs to be improved, the results match the flood observed and provide an important idea of the flood propagation.

1D simulation of the 2014 flood with HEC RAS (Manning sensitivity). Although the model still needs to be improved, the results provides good representation od the event showing the moment (day) when the flood begins and ends.
