BROSS is co-developed by Claire Beveridge
(with support from Shahryar Ahmad) of the University of Washington (UW)
SASWE Research Group and Bangladesh Water
Development Board (BWDB). This system is primarily intended to support BWDB in sustainably managing water resources and protecting human livelihoods
throughout Bangladesh. UW SASWE is grateful to BWDB for generously supporting this work by providing data and thoughtful feedback on the system, as well as
hosting Claire Beveridge for two weeks in Bangladesh to help her learn how BROSS could best support them.
UW SASWE also thanks Dr. Maminul Haque Sarker and the River, Delta and Coastal Morphology group at CEGIS as well as Professor Md. Munsur Rahman
and the Institute of Water and Flood Management at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology for their valuable insights on Bangladesh rivers
and feedback on BROSS. The system developers also thank current and former UW SASWE groups members Matthew Bonemma, Nishan Biswas, and Hisham Eldardiry
for providing valuable technical assistance.
This work was primarily funded by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program under Grant No. DGE-1762114.
This work also benefitted from support from the UW Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and NASA Water Applied Science Program.
