Flood Forecasting in Venice

  Flood Forecasting in Venice


DHI has been contracted by the Consorzio Venezia Nuova to further develop and run an operational flood forecasting system for the city of Venice, Italy. The system which has been operational for more than 5 years is currently optimized to produce the most accurate forecasts. DHI has received confirmation to proceed with further development and improvements of the system also in 2002. Among the new aspects taken into account by the forecast is the storage volume and water level variations inside the Venice lagoon itself. The operational framework around the system will also be modernized with the latest web server technology. The system is only operational in the flooding season     (Sep - Apr). In this period only forecast may be found on
