  author={Thanh Huy Nguyen and Anth'ea Delmotte and Christophe Fatras and Peter Kettig and Andrea Piacentini and Sophie Ricci},
Relevant comprehension of flood hazards has emerged as a crucial necessity, especially as the severity and the occurrence of flood events may intensify with climate changes. Flood simulation and forecast capability have been greatly improved thanks to advances in data assimilation. This approach combines in-situ gauge measurements with hydrodynamic models, which aims at correcting the hydraulic states and reducing the uncertainties in the model parameters, e.g., friction coefficients, inflow…

Near‐Real‐Time Assimilation of SAR‐Derived Flood Maps for Improving Flood Forecasts
Shortto medium-range flood forecasts are central to predicting and mitigating the impact of flooding across the world. However, producing reliable forecasts and reducing forecast uncertainties
Automatic near real-time selection of flood water levels from high resolution Synthetic Aperture Radar images for assimilation into hydraulic models: A case study
Abstract Flood extents caused by fluvial floods in urban and rural areas may be predicted by hydraulic models. Assimilation may be used to correct the model state and improve the estimates of the
Correction of upstream flow and hydraulic state with data assimilation in the context of flood forecasting
The present study describes the assimilation of river water level observations and the resulting improvement in flood forecasting. The Kalman Filter algorithm was built on top of a one-dimensional
Reduction of the uncertainties in the water level-discharge relation of a 1D hydraulic model in the context of operational flood forecasting
Abstract This paper presents a data-driven hydrodynamic simulator based on the 1-D hydraulic solver dedicated to flood forecasting with lead time of an hour up to 24 h. The goal of the study is to
Flood inundation model updating using an ensemble Kalman filter and spatially distributed measurements
Investigation of the application to a site along the River Crouch, Essex of a river-flow forecasting approach based on a one-dimensional hydraulic flow simulation model updated using real-time data within an ensemble Kalman filtering framework found uncertainty was under-estimated, indicating that the relative uncertainties prescribed to the simulation model and measurement model were inadequate.
Quantifying forcing uncertainties in the hydrodynamics of the Gironde estuary
High tide, combined with high meteorological surge levels and discharges in the Garonne and Dordogne rivers in the Gironde estuary (South-West France), may lead to high water levels and flooding near
MERIT Hydro: A High‐Resolution Global Hydrography Map Based on Latest Topography Dataset
High‐resolution raster hydrography maps are a fundamental data source for many geoscience applications. Here we introduce MERIT Hydro, a new global flow direction map at 3‐arc sec resolution (~90 m
The Sco-Flooddam Project: New Observing Strategies for Flood Detection, Alert and Rapid Mapping
The space climate observatory (SCO)-FloodDAM project aims at utilizing the capabilities of new observing strategies in order to better alert, detect and map flood events globally.
High-resolution mapping of global surface water and its long-term changes
Using three million Landsat satellite images, this globally consistent, validated data set shows that impacts of climate change and climate oscillations on surface water occurrence can be measured and that evidence can be gathered to show how surface water is altered by human activities.
Data Assimilation: Methods, Algorithms, and Applications
This book provides a framework for, and insight into, the inverse problem nature of data assimilation, emphasizing “why” and not just “how”, and provides a comprehensive guide that is accessible to nonexperts.
