The contribution of the National Technical University of Athens relates to the implementation of weather radar for hydrological applications, especially for spatial rainfall measurement and estimation, and consequently for storm and flash flood forecasting and warning. More specifically the scientific goals of the project during the first year (1/7/1996 – 30/6/1997) involved research in the following areas:

– Analysis and processing of acquired radar reflectivity data sets

– Evaluation of existing conceptual rainfall-runoff models for flood-flow forecasting using weather radar data

– Development and evaluation of a fully distributed grid-based rainfall-runoff model for flood-flow forecasting using weather radar data
