FloodAlert: A Simplified Radar-Based EWS for Urban Flood Warning, at HIC11 in New York

Hydrometeorological Innovative Solutions (HYDS) will be attending the 11th International Conference on Hydroinformatics (HIC 2014), August 2014. A simplified urban flood Early Warning System [EWS] based on the use of radar observations and radar nowcasting to issue local flood warnings will be presented.

  • Xavier Llort, Rafael Sánchez-Diezma, Álvaro Rodríguez, David Sancho (HYDS), Marc Berenguer, Daniel Sempere-Torres (CRAHI), 2014: “FloodAlert: A Simplified Radar-Based EWS for Urban Flood Warning”, 11th International Conference on Hydroinformatics, 17-21 August 2014, New York City, USA.
  • Presentation of the paper in Special Session S1-01: Real-time Monitoring of Urban Water Systems, on 17/Aug/2014: 10:45am-12:30pm, in Room 201.

How does it relate to PEARL?

As a web-based platform and Flood Early Warning System, HYDS’ FloodAlert contributes to work package 4 on Flood Forecasting and Early Warning Systems; particularly to Task 4.3 (“Advanced uncertainty tools and methods for early warning”) and Task 4.5 (“New methodologies, concepts and tools for effective dissemination of early warnings”).
