  • Debris-flow forecasting at regional scale by combining susceptibility mapping and radar rainfall 

    Berenguer Ferrer, Marc; Sempere Torres, Daniel; Hurlimann Ziegler, Marcel (2015-03-13)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work presents a technique for debris-flow (DF) forecasting able to be used in the framework of DF early warning systems at regional scale. The developed system is applied at subbasin scale and is based on the concepts ...
  • Adaptive reconstruction of radar reflectivity in clutter-contaminated areas by accounting for the space-time variability 

    Park, Shinju; Berenguer Ferrer, Marc (Elsevier, 2014-11-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Identification and elimination of clutter is necessary for ensuring data quality in radar Quantitative Precipitation Estimates (QPE). For uncorrected scanning reflectivity after signal processing, the removed areas have ...
  • Skill in nowcasting high-impact heavy precipitation events 

    Bech, Joan; Berenguer Ferrer, Marc (2014)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The objective of this study is to assess the skill of a precipitation nowcasting (very short range forecasting) system, with particular emphasis on hig-impact Heavy Precipitation Events (HPE). A threshold amount of 20 mm ...
  • The use of NWP forecasts to improve an ensemble nowcasting technique 

    Buil Martínez, Alejandro; Berenguer Ferrer, Marc; Sempere Torres, Daniel (2014)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Quantitative Precipitation Nowcasting (QPN) is one of the main applications of radar observations. On one hand, one of the most used nowcasting algorithms is Lagrangian extrapolation. It shows skill in specifying the timing ...
  • An inverse method to retrieve 3D radar reflectivity composites 

    Roca Sancho, Jordi; Berenguer Ferrer, Marc; Sempere Torres, Daniel (Elsevier, 2014-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    Dense radar networks offer the possibility of getting better Quantitative Precipitation Estimates (QPE) than those obtained with individual radars, as they allow increasing the coverage and improving quality of rainfall ...
  • Debris flow warning through radar nowcasting and critical rainfall thresholds: a case study in the Glarus catchment (Switzerland) 

    Mitidieri, Francesco; Papa, Maria Nicolina; Ciervo, Fabio; Berenguer Ferrer, Marc; Sempere Torres, Daniel; de Medina Iglesias, Vicente César; Bateman Pinzón, Allen (Springer, 2015)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The mitigation of debris flow (DF) risk can be achieved by the means of reliable warning systems. At present time, operational warning systems are mostly based on critical rainfall thresholds (CRT) derived through the ...
  • WiBasin: basin management through an integrated platform 

    Llort Pavon, Xavier; Sánchez-Diezma Guijarro, Rafael; Sancho, David; Rodríguez, Álvaro; Berenguer Ferrer, Marc; Sempere Torres, Daniel (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this work we present WiBasin, a cloud platform for basin and dam management. It includes different sources of precipitation (both observed and forecasted), integration over the catchment domain (to provide an aggregated ...
  • 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 ...
  • Gestió de riscos torrencials: el projecte IMPRINTS 

    Berenguer Ferrer, Marc; Sempere Torres, Daniel (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    En aquest article s’hi presenten els elements necessaris per la generació d’alertes d’inundacions torrencials en temps real, prenent com a exemple l’eina desenvolupada en el Projecte del 7è Programa Marc “IMproving ...
  • Integració de dades de radar i pluviòmetre per a la predicció meteorològica d'avingudes 

    Rigo, Tomeu; Serra, Aleix; Berenguer Ferrer, Marc (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Tot i que avui en dia les prediccions numèriques són molt acurades, encara no ho són tant com per poder donar un camp de precipitació ajustat a la realitat, a escales temporals horàries i espacials de pocs quilòmetres. ...
