Near real time flood forecasting, warning and management system based on satellite radar images, hydrological and hydraulic models and in-situ data.
Coordinator: Dr. Tore Guneriussen, NORUT, Tromsø, Norway
The main objective of this project is to
develop, demonstrate and validate a
prototype information system for cost effective
near-real time flood forecasting, warning and management
using EO data,
in particular space borne Synthetic Aperture Radar data, hydrological and hydraulic models and in-situ data.
