HRC Global Flash Flood Program
(Program Video, News and Outreach)




StartDate: 05/2005

The objective of this technology transfer project is to design, develop and test the components of an operational flash flood guidance system for Romania. There are radar rainfall estimates for the area and a number of real time on-site precipitation sensors which would be used to provide input to the system. The flash flood guidance system will be implemented by HRC at the National Institute for Hydrology and Water Management (NIHWM) in Bucharest. HRC staff will train regional system operators and users as to the interpretation and use of system products and will assist NIHWM staff in the development of protocols for using guidance system products in operations.
