Near real-time flood forecasting, warning and management system based on satellite radar images, hydrological and hydraulic models and in-situ data


FloodMan will develop methods for near real-time monitoring of flood extent using space borne SAR and optical data combined with in-site measurements, hydrological and hydraulic model data. The result will be an expert decision system for monitoring, management and forecast of floods in selected areas in Europe. The monitoring will also be used to update the hydrological/hydraulic models and thereby improving the quality of flood forecasts. The system will be based on the concept of Distributed Geographic Information network, which handles large heterogeneous interconnected spatial databases for seamless and multiscale representation of spatial data in real-time. The prototype will be validated in Rhine, Germany, Alessandria, Italy and Kemijokki Finland.
