The flash flood forecasting is one of the most important challenges for research in hydrology. The anticipation of extreme hydrological scenarios through rainfall–runoff models is still limited, mainly because of the high uncertainty of rainfall forecasts, as of limited computing resources. The authors propose to simulate an ensemble of potential hydrological scenarios in order to support the forecaster’s decision-making process. The developed applicative layer takes advantage of the computing… CONTINUE READING
