Due to climate change, extreme weather events pose a major thread to humanity. Our work focusses on the simulation of environmental related phenomena, such as urban wind fields and issues related to hydraulic engineering in mountainous regions. As a basis for the large-scale 3D fluid simulations, we propose an automatized geodata processing pipeline including the geometry of terrain and buildings. This new geodata processing framework is successfully used together with a new two-fluid Navier-Stokes solver to simulate the free surface flow in mountain valleys.
