Early alert system for real-time flood forecasting
The forecasting and alert system set up by CAP Excellence covers the municipalities of Pointe à Pitre and Les Abymes in MIKE OPERATIONS.
The MIKE OPERATIONS forecasting platform integrates the MIKE URBAN modelling technology to model the storm drainage systems. The modelling of the hydrological response, which is the rainfall runoff transformation on river catchments, and the flow propagation in the network are thus integrated into the operating system.
With the MIKE OPERATIONS software, rainfall information is automatically collected and a simulation is launched each day. This system enables the user to predict the risks of the storm drainage system overflowing, and consequently, the risks of floods over a 24-hour period. The information is then transmitted to operators.
