Final Report - AWARE (A tool for monitoring and forecasting Available WAter REsource in mountain environment)

Project ID: 12257
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE


This is the final executive summary of AWARE, a research project that aimed to develop advanced tools for predicting and monitoring water availability in Alpine regions. Carried out by a team of hydrologists, remote sensing specialists and information system analysts, AWARE resulted in four models of snowmelt runoff which can be used to manage water resources more efficiently.

This report provides a brief overview of innovations proposed by the project: the use of Earth observation (EO) data for hydro-meteorological variables and on-line tools which make the models accessible on the web. It also provides guidance on data processing tools which are freely available on an independent basis and lastly, a web-based application designed to support the environmental models.
