Presentation

Flash Flood Risk Assessment Using Weather Radar

Flash floods caused extensive damage annually to property and sometimes loss of life. So far, there was no simple way of fast predicting the growth of the risk of flash floods along watercourses. The goal of the presented research was to develop such a method of qualitative prediction of the growing risk of flash floods and generating an early warning for the potentially affected municipalities. The developed methodology is based on the weather radar data processing. It has been implemented in GIS. Off-line tests confirmed its effectiveness and also efficient usability.
