FLOCODS is an interdisciplinary long-term research project on the functioning of the Red River System (RRS) in flood, in the face of increasing degradation of the ecosystem and climate change. The final product of this project will be a full Decision Support System for ecosystem upgrading and flood prevention with particular emphasis on the RRS. On a short-term basis (2001-2002), the pilot phase of FLOCODS will serve for applied research to lay the scientific foundations and allow initial validation for a generic DSS using RRS as its test bed. In this phase, a pilot system of DSS (Hydrological, hydraulic models, overland and dyke-break flow models, socio-economic model) will developed, using the most advanced techniques (computer vision, remote-sensing, GIS) ; possible measures for ecosystem upgrading and flood mitigation will be identified.
