Additionally, the HYDRA team integrates economic models and datasets into HYDRA for the automated calculation of economic losses related to plume exposure, flood inundation, blast effects, and infrastructure service interruption.
NISAC also develops tools to enumerate community costs and customer losses due to contamination/damage from chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear (CBRN) events or natural hazards and to estimate potential restoration costs.
