Flood crisis support (application)�

The flood forecasting application framework with appropriate simulation models enable users to easily run the desired sequence of simulations and respective post-processing tools, browse the results of simulations, register results into the replica management service and applicable metadata into the metadata catalogue for later search and retrieval.

The flood forecasting application consists of several simulation models (meteorological, hydrological and hydraulic) and appropriate post-processing tools connected together, thus constituting a workflow.

The meteorological model is used to forecast precipitation, to be used by the hydrological model for computation of discharge of the river. That is used in the final step for actual computation of possible flood by the hydraulics model. All the models generate binary output data, which are then used by post-processing tools to generate pictures visualizing the situation. These pictures are then used by respective experts for situation evaluation.

The flood forecasting application has two user interfaces to enable users to interact with the application in a more user-friendly way. One interface is implemented as a web portal accessible by standard web browser. It consists of a set of portlets reusable web components that are placed in the portlet portal framework.

Another user interface is implemented as plug-in for Migrating Desktop (MD) a desktop user environment for working with grids developed (see MD results page).

While the portal interface focuses mainly on the flood application, MD is a general tool that enables a user to work with grid in a flexible way. It also integrates other applications via its plug-in system.
