Real-time flood decision support system integrating hydrological, meteorological and radar technologies

Objective

The FLOODRELIEF project aims
l) to develop and demonstrate a new generation of flood forecasting methodologies which will advance present capabilities and accuracies and
2) to make the results more readily accessible both to flood managers and those threatened by floods. This will be achieved by exploiting and integrating different sources of forecast information, including improved hydrological and meteorological model systems and databases, radar, advanced data assimilation procedures and uncertainty estimation, into a real-time flood management decision support tool designed to meet the needs of regional flood forecasting authorities. The benefits expected from this project are increased accuracy of both quantitative precipitation forecasts and hydrological forecasts cost-effective implementations of numerical weather modelling for precipitation forecasts in a highly accessible internet-based forecast information system.
