A comprehensive forecasting system for flood risk mitigation and control

Objective

The project aims at getting a decision support system to help decision makers to evaluate the expected damage or benefits of alternative choices. Development of reliable rainfall-runoff models for Southern European Countries, and their use in real time flood forecasting aiming at mitigating natural hazards.


- Study the level of aggregation and the required interfaces to set up a comprehensive flood forecasting scheme to perform a dynamic stochastic forecast of future rainfall traces.
- Comparison of different rainfall-runoff models in view of their inclusion in the forecasting and management system above and the improvement of the catchment behaviour representation.
- Dissemination of results to all EC countries involved in the mitigation and control of flood risk.
