Algortihm for assimilation of satellite flood area information to update hydrological forecasting model in WSFS

We expect to improve flood forecast accuracy with better real time information of flooding. Which helps in better flood mitigation, flood warning and reservoir operation.

At the moment the first test applications has been made with the hydrological forecasting system. Project results are expected to be usable commercially in water power production and reduction of flood damage. Socially forecasts increases public awareness, supports land use planning but also recreation possibilities can be taken into account better at heavily regulated lakes.

Dissemination of project results happens through free distribution leaflets (already published one), shared project brochures and given presentations. The developed method can be used in other river-catchments for some extent.
