Spatial Flood Early Warning System
Web-enabled Spatial Flood Early Warning System for the Godavari Basin has been developed using space inputs through hydrological modelling approach. The system gives medium range flood forecast in spatial environment prior to the event showing the possible areas that will come under submergence. It gives forecast with improve lead time with more accurate flood discharge estimation compared to the conventional methods. This information is useful for flood relief, rescue and management activities. Visit
