  • 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 ...
  • 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. ...
  • Radar-based rainfall nowcasting at European scale: long-term evaluation and performance assessment 

    Berenguer Ferrer, Marc; Sempere Torres, Daniel (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This work studies the performance of CRAHI's algorithm for rainfall nowcasting at European scale using the mosaics produced within the EUMETNET project OPERA (with a resolution of 4 km and 15 minutes) in the framework of ...
  • Reconstruction of radar reflectivity in clutter areas 

    Park, Shinju; Berenguer Ferrer, Marc (2013)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The production of Radar Quantitative Precipitation Estimates (QPE) requires processing the observations to ensure their quality and its conversion into the variable of interest (e.g., precipitation rates). Some of the steps ...
  • Blending of radar and gauge rainfall measurements: a preliminary analysis of the impact of radar errors 

    Sempere Torres, Daniel; Berenguer Ferrer, Marc; Velasco Forero, Carlos Alfonso (International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS), 2011)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Several methodologies have been proposed to combine radar and raingauge measurements with the aim of generating improved quantitative precipitation estimates (QPEs). These methods are based on interpolating point raingauge ...
