Earth and Sea Observation System: Flooding

Product by Satellite Applications Catapult

The Earth and Sea Observation System will assist authorities to improve awareness of flood risk. It will generate alerts to enable response teams to activate evacuation plans and consider short-term flood defences. The results will include improved advanced warning times (flood forecasting up to 7 days in advance), better information about impacted areas and safe evacuation routes, and prediction of improving or deteriorating conditions. Resulting in reductions in the number of fatalities, damage to property, businesses and infrastructure.
