Development of a dedicated sub-system based on remote sensing and a common used
GIS platform that will allow the storage, management and exchange
of graphic Information and of related attribute data for the flood
monitoring activities. This system will improve the floods management
and mitigate theirs effects in the Romanian - Hungarian transboundary
Developing through joint work common interpretation methods of the satellite
data to detect flooded area and elaboration of integrated methods
based on hydrological modelling, EO data and GIS facilities for flood
Collection and validation of data necessary for flood management in the Romanian
- Hungarian transboundary area (topographical, physiographical, meteorological,
hydrological data and Information of the hydraulic structures).
Setting up and implementation of the GIS for flood management, post-crisis
analysis and damage assessment in the Romanian - Hungarian transboundary
Selection, developing, calibration / inter-calibration and validation of the
statistical and hydrological forecast models.
Evaluation and cartography of historical extreme flood events and the hydrological
risk to flooding.
Implementation of the dedicated sub-system for flood management in the Romanian -
Hungarian transboundary test-area.
Training of young researchers in the satellite image processing, GIS and hydrological
modelling (the award of 3 M.Sc and 1 doctorate degree). Additional
young researchers (4 in total) will receive on the job training leading
to their professional advancement.
Dissemination of the project results to the international scientific community.
One year after completion of the project
Application of the post-crisis analysis and damage assessment methodology to another
