Key words
Abstract:
Urban flood forecasting and warning is increasingly important in light of both ongoing urbanization, generating larger and denser cities, and climate change, generating higher rainfall intensities. In this project, improved forecasting systems will be developed to support decision makers at levels from local to Pan-European.
Project structure
WP1 - Management, WP2 - End-user Value, WP3 - Hydro-meteorological Data, WP4 - Urban Flood Forecasting, WP5 - Exploitation and Dissemination
Implementation:
The development will be performed by coordinated forecast experiments in several European cities, where different meteorological and hydrological/hydraulic model systems will be set up and run in parallel. The experiments will be discussed in end-user workshops, to ensure practical relevance.
Outcome/deliverables: The project is expected to generate innovative tools for generation and communication of urban flood forecasts in different spatial contexts, based on new technology as well as an improved understanding of end-user's needs and limitations.
