DAMSAT progress

The impact of COVID-19 on DAMSAT

Amid the strange times we are living, we continue making progress on the development of DAMSAT whilst following the health recommendations issued by competent authorities.

Thanks to the new technology, remote working has allowed the teams in England and Peru to continue developing the final version of DAMSAT, which will be ready by the middle of this year.

During the last few weeks we have been working on the development of the Risk Analysis module for the Pasco region. This module includes models of tailings and water dams breach, flood propagation, simulations of the evacuation of people in potentially affected areas, as well as the quantification of the potential damages. We are also working on improving the visualisation of results, preparing project dissemination materials as well as taking care of administrative tasks.
