Introduction

The work is organised in three work packages. Three test studies will be used as common test beds for testing and evaluating the developments in the three work packages:

The linkages between work packages and test studies are illustrated below.

 

Test study 1

Test study 2

Test study 3

WP1: Combining weather radar and NWP for short-range QPF

 

 

 

WP2: Probabilistic hydrological forecasting

 

 

 

WP3: Hydrological data assimilation

 

 

 

 

The schedule for the completion of tasks is outlined below.
