Operational Pan-European River Runoff

Objective

The overall objective of the project is twofold, first to turn a pan-European river discharge model into operational use and thereby acting as a downstream service based on earlier developed GMES core services and at the same time stimulating the development and improvement of new downstream services. This objective will be achieved by extending an already running operational river discharge model (HYPE) for the Baltic Sea drainage basin to cover all European rivers. A sustainable operational system will be built up to respond to GMES downstream services like coastal ocean models, regional environmental commissions like HELCOM and OSPAR, regional and national operational institutes, environmental protection agencies, fishery boards, water regulation bodies and SME’s working in this area.
The second objective is the validation of observed river discharge and the river discharge estimates produced by the project in applications of shelf sea ocean.
