Project: Integrating radar remote sensing, hydrologic and hydraulic modelling for surface water management
- project duration
- 01-DEC-06 – 31-JAN-12
- The overall goals of the proposal are 1) to explore new strategies to integrate radar remote sensing, hydrologic, and hydraulic modelling for water management purposes through data assimilation, and 2) to demonstrate the applicability of advanced data assimilation schemes for a set of water management problems. The major outcome will be fundamental knowledge about radar data assimilation in hydrology. The major deliverables will be a set of data and operational procedures supporting water management, in particular the implementation of the European Water Framework Directive and the forthcoming Directive on Floods.
