  1. 1. RAINGAIN Kickoff 18 November 2011 How to do it? Marie-claire ten Veldhuis
  2. 2. RAINGAIN – Project Objective <ul><li>Objective : </li></ul><ul><li>to improve fine-scale measurement and prediction of rainfall and </li></ul><ul><li>to enhance urban pluvial flood prediction in order to </li></ul><ul><li>enable urban water managers to adequately cope with intense storms, so that the vulnerability of populations and critical infrastructure can be reduced. </li></ul>
  3. 3. RAINGAIN WP Leaders <ul><li>WP1: Installation and testing of radars Lead: ParisTech, Daniel Schertzer </li></ul><ul><li>WP2: Fine-scale rainfall data acquisition and prediction Lead: KU Leuven, Patrick Willems </li></ul><ul><li>WP3:Urban pluvial flood modelling and prediction Lead: Imperial College of London, Cedo Maksimovic </li></ul><ul><li>WP4:Implementation of fine-scale rainfall data, flood modelling and prediction into urban water management practice Lead: TU Delft, Marie-claire ten Veldhuis </li></ul>
  4. 4. RAINGAIN WPs and ACTIONS State-of-the-art pilot s for stormwater and flood control Analysis of peak rainfall and flood events at pilots; weak spots Training on implementation of fine-scale rainfall and flood data+forecastin Development of solutions to improve pluvial flood control pilots Customised guidelines for pilot countries Existing urban drainage models Radar acquisition Radar installation and testing WP1 WP2 Workshop rainfall data acquisition Acquisition of rainfall data from radars Local urban rainfall forecast Workshop urban rainfall forecasting Downscaling techniques National weather radar National weather forecast WP3 Linkage of local rainfall data to flood models Training material and guidelines Full scale testing of pluvial flood models at pilots WP4 Appraisal of existing rainfall data Customisation of flood models for rainfall input
