Biggest success

Biggest success

Hydrology Forum Koblenz, May 8-10, 2012

  • HIC: Available flood forecasting system for all navigable waterways in Flanders to be used as decision support system for water managers

  • VMM: issued in November 2010 a first official national flood warning 48 hoursbefore a damagingfloodingstarted over wide areas in Flanders.

    Whatmakesyou happy atwork?

  • HIC: achieving goals


Biggest failure

Biggest failure

Hydrology Forum Koblenz, May 8-10, 2012

  • HIC: staff reduction

  • VMM: not being able to communicatetowards the general public with one voice and slower speed whenworkingtogetherwith more organisations.

  • VMM(2): lateaccess to the NWP and now-casting productsfromneighbouring countries

    Whatmakesyouunhappyatwork?

  • HIC: staff reduction


Expectations

Expectations

Hydrology Forum Koblenz, May 8-10, 2012

  • At the regional level

    • VMM: integrated web-publishing of all content with regard to flooding (geo-portal).

  • At the national level

    • HIC: free, high quality and quickly validated meteorological data from Royal Meteorological Institute

    • VMM: balanced agreement on «data-costs» when meteorological and hydrological services make use of each others data and products


Expectations1

Expectations

Hydrology Forum Koblenz, May 8-10, 2012

  • At international level

    • HIC: availability of realtime and validated data for transnational catchments in France (Météo-France) and the Netherlands (KNMI); easy access to weather forecasts of several European models

    • VMM: access to real-time observed rainfall intensities (mm/10’) in neighbouring areas of Flanders with a time-delay less then 4 minutes
