  • FloodAlert: a simplified radar-based EWS for urban flood warning 

    Llort Pavon, Xavier; Sánchez-Diezma Guijarro, Rafael; Rodríguez, Álvaro; Sancho, David; Berenguer Ferrer, Marc; Sempere Torres, Daniel (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this work we present FloodAlert, a simplified flood Early Warning System [EWS] based on the use of radar observations and radar nowcasting to issue local flood warnings. It is a web-based platform and it is complemented ...
  • Hydrological validation of a radar-based nowcasting technique 

    Berenguer Ferrer, Marc; Corral Alexandri, Carles; Sánchez-Diezma Guijarro, Rafael; Sempere Torres, Daniel (2005-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    Nowcasting precipitation is a key element in the anticipation of floods in warning systems. In this framework, weather radars are very useful because of the high resolution of their measurements both in time and space. ...
