Abstract

Proceedings of the workshop/expert meeting, from Monselice, Padua (Italy), September 1997. Papers comprise: introduction; destructive flood in Poland: Odra, summer 1997; conceptual models of extratropical cyclones leading to floods in Europe and their linking with hydrological models; disaggregation of daily precipitation; multi-sensor data and coupled hydrological meteorological modelling in real-time forecasting; rainfall estimation in the Nexrad era-operational experience, issues, and ongoing efforts in the U.S. national weather service; use of radar-rainfall estimated for flood simulations in mountainous basin; rainfall information requirements for Mediterranean flood operational forecasts; comparison of a lumped and a distributed flood forecasting model; operational hydrometeorological input for real-time flood forecastings in Germany; the weak link in the chain: flood warnings dissemination; real time storm surge and watershed inflow forecasting in the Venice Lagoon; ten years operational use of C-band weather radar; flood management in the Netherlands-Safety First; real-time flood warning and risk mitigation: expecting the unexpected; July 1997 floods in the Czech Republic; space and time scales of meteorological and hydrological models; improving radar rainfall estimation for hydrological purposes; a water-balance storm model for short-term rainfall and flood forecasting at the catchment scale using radar and satellite data; on the role of numerical weather prediction models in real-time flood forecasting; research and development needs for operational flood warning.
