Information - NH1.01 Advances in radar, satellite and hydrological modelling methods for flash flood forecasting and droughts (co-listed in AS & HS)
Recent developments in radar and satellite remote sensing technologies as well as advancements in rainfall-runoff models open new possibilities for obtaining detailed spatially distributed information about precipitation and soil/vegetation status parameters and use them as input/verification for quantitative precipitation forecast (QPF) and hydrological model.
The objective is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion about both progress and still pending problems in the utilization of remotely sensed information in operational hydrological and water management applications.
The session will mainly focus on the following topics:
- Advancement of national/international research projects, networks, and operational systems for floods and droughts monitoring and mitigation;
- Ground radar based precipitation monitoring advancements in removing and correcting observational errors in radar data, in using multiparametric-polarimetric quantities in rainfall estimation, in identifying and quantifying the uncertainty in the forecasting chain, in identifying the error characteristics at a range of scales;
- Satellite-based precipitation, snow cover, soil humidity and prestorm thermodynamic monitoring techniques
- Application of innovative remote sensing technologies to the study and management of flash floods forecast
- Evaluation of the quality, reliability, and usefulness of hydrological numerical modelling.
