Real-time flood forecasting
Faster flood model simulations revolutionise real-time flood forecasting and intelligence.
Flood model simulation times have significantly reduced, making it practical to simulate hydraulic models for real-time flood forecasting and flood intelligence. This webinar will examine a case study in India where TUFLOW models have been integrated into Delft-FEWS for real-time operation. Some of the exciting features include ensemble modelling, hot-starting models, and the utilization of variable geometry to simulate embankment failure at any point within a complex network of over 1,000km of embankments.
Our second case study is an Australian example of TUFLOW being used for real-time flood forecasting on the Gold Coast. The mostly cloud-based system uses forecast data to monitor conditions over multiple catchments, providing notifications and simulations results when thresholds are met. During severe weather events the system facilitates flood intelligence to provide information to decision makers based on the most recent forecast and recorded data.
