Flood Monitoring


Flood Mapping Evaluation of Earth Observation (EO) data in respect to flooding allows a quick and consistent overview of large areas in high accuracy. Analyses from EO data improve loss estimation resulting in more efficient, faster and more accurate operation. Results also support estimation of flooding risk. Flood Mapping Product [...]

Soil Moisture


Soil Moisture Large area soil moisture retrieval by current/conventional ground based observations is limited. For such spatial and temporal highly variable dynamic properties, like soil moisture, microwave remote sensing techniques, offer good opportunities for spatial monitoring. The method for near surface soil moisture derivation, developed at the LMU Munich, Department of Geography, was enhanced by [...]

Snow Monitoring


Snow Monitoring Snow has large effects in runoff and hydrology in major areas of Central Europe, especially in the Alps. The detailed knowledge of the snow cover can help to ascertain the water balance in observed areas and can improve flood forecast and prediction of stored water (Hydropower). Monitoring of the extent [...]

Runoff and Energy


Runoff and Energy Forecast of hydroelectric power production for the energy industry For the hydroelectric power production daily forecasts of energy production for gauges and hydropower plants in the catchment of the Upper Danube are simulated with PROMET. Also, the snow water equivalent above reservoir power stations is modelled daily. Fig. [...]
