HydroCast – Hydrological Forecasting and Data Assimilation
HydroCast is a joint research project undertaken by a project team of fifteen research scientists, three PhD students and three end-users across ten institutions. In the HydroCast project new forecasting and data assimilation tools are developed and tested that combine different on-line data sources with meteorological and hydrological modelling for provision of probabilistic hydrological forecasts, covering short-range, medium-range and seasonal forecasting.
The tools are tested on three test cases but they will be generic and applicable in a wide range of cases.
The HydroCast project started 1st January 2012 and will run for four years. The project consortium includes five research organisations from Danish universities and research institutes, two international research organisations, and three end-users.
