Project summary del proyecto

INUNDATIO develops and validates a low-cost system for early warning of sudden avenues in the headwaters of river basins and integrates it with protocols for prevention, reaction to random events and repair of the damages caused. The project mitigates the risk of loss of life and economic damage in the Sudoe territory. Thus, INUNDATIO monitors, in real time, the headwaters of rivers and streams, since in them the behavior of meteorological phenomena is less predictable, they evolve very quickly, hinder the reaction and their impact can be serious. Three pilot cases have been chosen that represent the three climatic areas of the Sudoe territory (oceanic, Mediterranean and high mountain). In this way,  all possible scenarios in our territory will be recreated.

INUNDATIO offers a model of management system for sudden floods (flash floods) at the head of the basin based on its hydromorphological characterization, the continuous characterization of the hazard through the collection and analysis of historical and real-time hydrometeorological data (rain + flow), simulation of risk scenarios and vulnerability analysis for human lives and material elements. It will allow its application to all the basin headwaters of the Sudoe territory where vulnerability due to torrential flooding is relevant.
